A Flickr Christmas: Walking in a Vintage Wonderland


I LOVE the holidays! The smells, the gatherings, the FOOD. But my favorite part (aside from the birth of Jesus of course!) is the tree! There's nothing better than drinking hot chocolate, listening to Nat King Cole on the hi-fi, and decorating the tree with all sorts of colorful ornaments, both new and old.  What's your favorite part of the holiday season?

Vintage Balls!

  1. Vintage ornaments are the best!!!! I love the bright colors and the silver trees!!!

  2. those ornaments remind me of my grandma and i love them for that. so beautiful even when they start to crackle and wear a little bit. that gives them even more character.

  3. I agree! A little wear makes them even better :)
