Show and Tell 12.16.09

Here are pictures of some of my favorite Christmas decorations and ornaments.

I love vintage ornaments.

I display them different ways. This milk glass bowl was my grandmother's.

These are hand made by a family member. They are vintage 1,000 Islands, NY postcards.

I love Len.ox. My Christmas collection started with a beautiful hand painted plate of Santa's sleigh. This Santa was a present last year.
Hubby started getting me an ornament every year. I have the "new house" "the wedding" a train, gingerbread man.

Finally 3 Christmas' ago I received the"baby's 1st Christmas"

These shelves usually have pottery and pictures on them. I love looking at something different.

Also handmade by same person.
This is a picture of my grandmother and her brother circa 1928.

My MIL made us this advent calendar. It is a tradition in her family. Through the years some of the ornaments have been changed. The best addition was a stocking for Min Man.
Happy Holidays!
Check out the rest of Show and Tell.

You have some beautiful things for Christmas. I love the balls in the bowl--what a great idea! (and the bowl is beautiful)

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

these are delightful! I have a Lenox manger set that includes the holy family, the 3 kings, an angel, 3 camels, donkey, ox, sheep, goat and a shepherd (I'm probably leaving something out) Anyway, we have received this and other Christmas decorations from hubby's aunts.

I enjoyed the tour of your decorations. They are all wonderful.

I too am a vintage ornament junkie. I have a tree full of them. New ornaments are nice but there's something special about something that has a history to it.
