Vintage Holidays!

I snapped some more pics of my vintage holiday collection for you! Enjoy!

On the side table in my dining room. New this year: gum drop tree, rare orange reindeer, and music house box.

Rare blue vintage Japan holiday collectibles up top, and below a vintage Japan Santa and his trusty reindeer, sleigh, and bottlebrush tree!

Strange Christmas mushroom, and chenille deer made by Holiday Faire and large celluloid reindeer are new this year! Below and new tree, and some cute Gurley candles!

Color of the Month November 2012

Well, I have to say this is not my favorite time of year. Everything starts to get brown, the leaves are gone, the garden is looking pretty dead, the early darkness makes me tired when there’s so much to do for the busy holiday season. So… color of the month- ode to tan in honor of the stick like brown world!

Fave pieces, the Busy as a Bee vintage kitchen towel, pretty much sums up the season! Gurley turkey candle, and of course melmac!

This vintage tablecloth is part of my personal collection, one of several leaf tablecloths. Tan melmac dishes are ready for a little soup perhaps with some hot tea. The placemats this time are some super hard to find Boltabest trays designed by George Nelson and Associates! Wowee! Those are available in my vintage shop! A vintage modern fall table setting, ready for some crock pot cookin!
