It is time to dress our tree and our home.............Vintage style!!! we only have vintage decorations and a few treasures from our past, like the ones from dear friends in Michigan or the darling pieces from our friends in Maine.......all dear to our hearts. Then there is the ones made by grandchildren they take pride of place on our tree!!

We also have a friendly village scene my husband puts out (this is when it we in the Melbourne museum)
We have so many boxes of shiny brites and other vintage baubles it is awash with colour on our floor as we choose what to use.

I hope you had a good lunch with your friends.
Your decorations are very pretty. It is special when they have sentiments through friends. You mentioned ones in MI. I've from there but now live in SC.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Oh, Lee-ann, I want to go over to your house so that I can look and admire all those gorgeous vintage ornaments you have!!! As you know, I love vintage ornaments and have decorated my tree with the ones I've been able to find in the last couple of years. I was able to get some Shiny Brights from eBay but ouch, the cost I had to pay for shipping was painful! lol xoxo
