Our Little Retro Christmas

Wednesday, December 26, 2012


                                Hey!! Don't forget to enter my 3 year blogiversary giveaway!!


I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas this year! Ours was very tiring with all of the places to go but we had a wonderful time. I had been wanting to show you my vintage Christmas decorations forever so a little late but still fun, here they are!

This Santa and reindeer set was my grandma's when she was a girl. I'm so honored that it was passed down to me because this thing was my first vintage love.




We left cookies and milk for Santa and carrots for the reindeer with my vintage northstar plate and northstar mug from my shop. The mantle was pretty full with my decorations so we set them on one of my 50's dinette chairs.



Due to a 2 and 3 year old in the house, we have a mix of vintage and modern ornaments on our tree. I bought these silver and green starburst thingies from Michaels craft store last year, along with the retro starburst ball ornaments (see the gold one by the pixie). I love the colors and the starburst but I especially love them because they were very cheap and are plastic!



 We do have a few very old glass ornaments, passed on from grandmothers and moms. They stay up high where little hands cant reach. 


What do you think of my retro pixies? I love them SO much, I hope to find time to make more next year. I found the directions for these in a 1950's Christmas craft book. They are so easy and add a little naughty playfulness to the tree. I'm sure that no one is making ornaments right now but I'll post the how-to after Thanksgiving next year /


                             
Here's little Lilo on Christmas morning, striking a silly pose! Check out my starburst and snowflake wrapping paper. I found it last week at Big Lots!

  3. Hi Brittany,
    Love your mixture of the old and the new. Your Grandma's vintage Santa and reindeers are so cute, and special because they were hers. I'll be looking for the vintage homemade ornament instructions next year, and I'll remind you if you forget! ;)
    Blessings to you and your family in the New Year.

  4. What a splendidly lovely collection! I really, really want to build my mid-century Christmas decor collection up more, and am hoping the that yard sale gods will smile on me in that regard in the coming year :)
