December 9, 2011MCM Home Improvement: Christmas Tree Ornaments
By Sablemable aka Jan
Now that you have your vintage Christmas tree, or the real thing (that’s retro, too), you need to decorate it with MCM ornaments and tree toppers.
Mercury glass ornaments adorned many a tree and the following have been culled from the memories of our family Christmas trees.
All ornaments are listed on Etsy (www.etsy.com) and photos are courtesy of same.
FROM SELLER FoxandHoundstooth IS A SET OF 4 FLOCKED ORNAMENTS FOR $10.00
FoxandHoundstooth HAS A SECOND SET OF 4 ORNAMENTS FOR $10.00
SELLER moonula HAS THIS STARBURST ORNAMENT FOR $7.50. Moonula states that she has several of this ornaments and will be happy to make a special listing for your purchase.
SELLER ClassicMemories HAS A SET OF 3 ORNAMENTS FOR $18.00
SELLER goodygirlred HAS 2 INDENTED SHINY BRITE ORNAMENTS FOR $9.00
SELLER annykate HAS SOME SHINY BRITE BELL ORNAMENTS FOR $45.00
SELLER TeresasTreasuresEtc. HAS A SET OF 7 ORNAMENTS FOR $18.00
To finish off the tree, you’ll need a tree topper. Now, I have found that one can use an electric lit topper on an aluminum tree and I do, however, PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE YOUR ARTIFICIAL TREE UNATTENDED WHILE THE TOPPER IS LIT! That being said, here are 2 tree toppers that need a new MCM home.
SELLER stephieD has this standard tree topper for $14.00
SELLER HardlyAbleStable HAS THIS POM-POM TREE TOPPER IN ITS ORIGINAL BOX FOR $10.00. This seller, bless him or her, keeps rescued animals and uses the monies earned from sales on Etsy and Ebay to pay for the animals care.
Okay, with your own personal touches, you’re MCM Christmas tree should be ready to show.
And if you are particularly proud of your masterpiece, please send me a photo of your tree and I will post it the Friday before Christmas. Mine will be displayed as well. So dress it up, point, click and send your photo to me ASAP!
