OOOH I wish they'd fix the banner issues!

It is CHRISTMAS TREE day here today! I'm digging out the year's worth of Christmas junking finds & gathering it all to go onto my Christmas tree. Which has been sitting here NEKKID for almost a week. Today I will decorate!

Every year I end up with a new assortment of ornaments from my junking adventures. I also have some junker buddies looking out for me, so many of these items have been given to me by sweet friends or family, who know of my love for everything vintage-xmas!
These pink shabby ornaments were in these original boxes and I paid less than $2.00 for all of them! There are 5 sleeves of them!
The sweet little green box with silver ornaments was gifted to me by Pam Hooten. I have a tiny silver tree that they can go on, but actually, I may just display them in the cute green box! I LOVE the box they came in!
Check out these little glitterfied birdies! These are from Heather Nichols (Pinefeather). They were in her husband Chad's family, and she thought that I'd be able to do something fun with them. OMG I was so excited to see these guys! I'm ALL about the glitter! Now that she's got her own Etsy store with vintage finds, I told her "NO BACKS", I'm keeping these birds for my tree!

This box is from my Mom...she got it for .50 at a garage sale. She said "some of them look pretty shabby, but you can pick the cute ones out". I said HELLO! I'm *ALL ABOUT* the shabby ones!

I have to admit I'm a bit of a slacker. This "Winter Dreams" banner has been up since last Christmas. I love that it's so glittery and couldn't bear to take it down after Christmas last year. So I kept it up, and pretended even into the summer months that I was dreaming of winter. (SO NOT TRUE).
So I'm off to decorate. I'll post a pic of my tree later so you can see all this stuff on the tree!
Happy Saturday! L.

What a wave of nostaglia - we had some of those exact ornaments. I especially remember the pink ones in those boxes. Now I have to call my mom. I know your tree will be delightful. Merry Christmas!

I just LOVE vintage ornaments! I have a bunch of vintage bright pink ornaments in different sizes (like your light pink ones) that we got at an antique store a couple years ago for CHEAP....can't wait to put them out this year! They make me so happy!

I still have some of those old ornaments - I wasn't going to put up a tree this year, but seeing your ornaments and decorations inspired me to do it!

Ooh, I have a thing for vintage Christmas ornaments too, so I love yours! My Mom has my grandma's old ornaments and they're in the exact same boxes yours are! I'm definitely hoping those will be passed down to me eventually (I don't think my sister wants them anyway, so chances might be good.)

It's a good idea to ask family and friends for the old ornaments they don't want - maybe I should do that!

Your blog has a lot of nice stamping stuff, too, I'm looking forward to seeing it all :)
