A few of my favorite vintage Christmas collections...

It's been extremely overcast, so my pictures aren't very bright, but I thought I'd show you a few of my favorite vintage Christmas collections. My sunroom tree the last three years has been a Chinese-themed tree in honor of Josie's adoption. I decided to put all my favorite shiny brite ornaments and other vintage goodies on it this year, and I'll swap it out when it gets closer to Chinese New Year with our Chinese decorations.

My sunroom shelf is filled with all kinds of my favorite collections.

One can never have enough Santas'.
Especially if they have Japan stamped on the bottom.

This Santa isn't vintage but he came home in my husband's suitcase when traveled to Russia on a hockey trip he won several years ago. I just love the hand-painting.

I also love to collect plastic sleighs...



...and Christmas boots


My dollhouse now displays a Christmas tree in its front window...

...and my doll dresser has a tiny stocking.

I hope you enjoyed the tour of a few of my favorite vintage treasurers.
Have a fabulous weekend.
The girls and I are working on a few kid-friendly ornaments which I will share soon.
xoxo

Hope you had an AMAZING weekend!! The vintage details you bring to each holiday are always so darn pretty. LOVE you styla chickie, but the dollhouse if by far my favorite. I never had one growing up and have secretly always wanted one as an adult :0)

Just when I think I am done decorating.. I read your blog and am inspired to do more. I don't know how you do everything so perfectly!!

You must own a second house just to store decorations! Everything is so beautiful, and I just love your vintage vibe.
