Dreaming of a {Vintage} Christmas

Not only did my sweet hubby come home this week bearing yummy food gifts, he also brought me this wonderful {original} box of Shiny Brites!! Isn't he awesome?

I love, love, love vintage ornaments! The colors are just beautiful!

I have collected quite a few~I even have some from my Grandma that decorated their tree when my dad was a boy~and I love to use them.

These are a nice little distraction from our hot, hot summer. The fall and holiday season is my absolute favorite time of the year!

You will enjoy these for years, I have my folk's and they are Christmas to me. He did good.

I just love vintage Christmas balls. Every year I'm tempted to leave them around the house after Christmas. I have some cherished ones from when I was a child.
So many things to do with them. They even look good just sitting in a bowl.
Thanks for sharing

I love Shiny Brites too. When I was little that's all we decorated our tree with. Somehow my mom got rid of them. I especially loved the ones that were indented. Do you know the kind I mean? I always liked to touch those the most. Must have driven my mom crazy!

You sure have a sweetie husband to pick those up for you. Fun post and great pictures!

Beautiful! I'm curious - will these hang on your Christmas tree or do you have more creative plans in mind??

I have a few of those - they were my grandparents. Beautiful.
Thanks for reminding me of them.

Those are beautiful! Christmas has been on my mind a lot lately. Last week during our VBS, we collected shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child! Now I want to get started on all my Christmas shopping:)
