Vintage Holiday Decorations

Adding lights on the mantle makes this vintage ornament display come alive with the cheerful colors of the season. I filled clear glass vases with my favorite family heirlooms as well as recent acquisitions from the antique mall. A strand of multi colored lights disperses a colorful glow.





 
Finding a time and place to use my vintage teacups is easy.
These paper-wrapped Italian cookies were the perfect compliment. I found them at a local TJMaxx/Marshalls store. They were excellent.


 
I feel so lucky to have these wonderful vintage ceramic decorations to warm up my home during the holidays. They were made decades ago by the sister of an aunt. She clearly put a lot of love and time into her work, which is appreciated and admired each holiday season.



I love the warm glow cast by this sweet ceramic tree so much that I don't pack it away until February!
 

I have a stash of vintage Christmas cards that I send out to friends and family I know will enjoy the unique designs. I keep some cards to put on display on bookshelves or tabletops where they lend a cheery reminder of the simple pleasures of a bygone era.
