Christmas Decorating


Vintage Christmas Ornaments, Thrfted and Tweaked finds and 
a Collage of past Christmas Decorations.
Take a peek at 6 Pointed Paper Snowflakes. and A Dickens Mantel


Vintage Santa (it was my Mom's and is my Favorite Thing)
and a small Christmas tree.


Christmas images thanks to the Graphics Fairy.
Thrifted ornate metal photo frames.
Didn't notice the reflection of the lamp until I posted. Whoops.


Thifted vintage Snowman and Santa - 1960's era.
(Thanks Charlene of Organized Clutter for the descriptor:
 Plastic Christmas Blow Moulds)


Christmas scenes from earlier years.

My sister (This Green Life and This Green House) crafted the village scene many years ago, DGS worked on that gingerbread house when he was six, flowers are from the past as is our lighted home on a rainy December night  and a ceramic workshop crafted Christmas Tree
likely from the late '60's or early 70's.



The two striped bulbs are from my childhood home, gently faded and mixed in a footed glass bowl with other bulbs and a vintage glass beaded chain.

My tea/coffee station with holly (from a friendly Church Bazar) added.

Sharing with some lovely hosts.

  3. Lovely Christmas pictures. I think a lot of folks have been inspired to decorate earlier this year - at least I have! Some years I can't get in the mood to put anything up until a few days before The Great Event! My ladies group just had a Christmas tea which has me already decorating my house :)

  28. Hi, just fund you at the party at Mockingbird Hill Cottage. I love everything vintage, too - really love your mother's Santa. My mom had one too, and I had it for a while but then gave it to my nephew (her grandson) so that his little children could enjoy it as I did. Also it's very creative the way you framed pics from Graphics Fairy in those lovely thrifted frames. All beautiful. Hugs ~ Mary

  29. The Santa is so sweet! I love everything you've shared with us today, Joy, as always. You know, I had a sneaking suspicion that This Green Life might be related to you! You and your siblings are great bloggers!

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!
