December 26, 2013Merry Retro, Vintage Christmas Everyone!
By Sara In AZ
Hey y’all, I sincerely hope that everyone had a wonderful day yesterday….that the company of friends and family was shared and hopefully many smiles too!
I hope all of the fun of Christmas decorating hasn’t worn off on everyone yet, as I ‘d like to show off some of the Christmas kitsch around my house.
We’ll start off with our vintage green and silver aluminum tree. We’ve had this tree for ages….I guess we managed to get pretty lucky with this – we got it before the real craze started. If I remember correctly we only paid $25 for it! And yes, we have scads of knee hugger elves on it! I adore the knee hugger elves and have managed to pick up some here and there for probably the past 10 years…some I was even lucky enough to get as gifts from friends!
Two of my very favorite knee hugger elves came from my friend in Ohio! Pink and blue….Eeeeeeee!!!
And , I always have to put out the mouse family every year….ALWAYS!
Remember the Elf Christmas bags and stockings we scored last January? Well, we have all of those out too!
I wasn’t sure where to put the elf bags, so I just set them right on top of the elf tree skirt….can you tell we are elf crazy around here!?
And the elf stockings were hung by the chimney with care.
Of course I HAD to put out my new/old sweet little ‘NOEL’ elf ornaments!
Somewhere along the way we managed to collect a whole heard of old felt stuffed reindeer!
Every single one of the red flocked deer we have came from Mike’s Grandmother and we love them to bits…..I managed to score one pink flocked deer a long time ago at an antique store on the cheap, but wow…haven’t seen one since! I SO wish I could find more!!!
And finally, this year I actually managed to collect enough vintage wrapping paper from the thrift stores so that nearly all the Christmas gifts were wrapped in vintage paper! Whooooo-Hooooooo!!!!!!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
