I decided to get a new, bigger Christmas tree this year. We've had the little 5.5 footer since before we got married (so more than seven years! ah!) and it was getting pretty crowded. So we went to Michael's when they were having a half off sale and bought this beautiful 7.5 thing! I love it! And it's already mostly full, haha. I can't resist a good ornament!
We set this beauty up on Thanksgiving and I've been enjoying the lights every night. I'll be sad to take it down.
We have vintage ornaments, the ornaments my grandparents bought me every year since I was born (the Santa/reindeer bicycle built for two was from the year we got married) and Travis' childhood ornaments. I love this one with the photo of him when he was six years old. Precious.
Lots of vintage ones. That cute Santa is a favorite.
I've been wanting a Santa like this forever! I finally found one this year at an estate sale. My aunt knit me that cute tree pillow.
The woman I bought my angel from told me she loved her because she looked drunk.
I couldn't bear to put my talking Pee Wee away. Since taking this photo I put some mistletoe in his hand. Kiss me under the Pee Wee doll. I also get lots of delight from putting that Santa hat on my fox head.
There is the circus horse I got at the flea market last month. Beautiful!
We got Phyllis a few weeks before Christmas and got a few pug ornaments because of that. We snapped a leg off of all of them to match our tiny tripod.
And last but not least, my little tree on top of our medical cabinet. Travis has his vintage medicine collection in there.
That little silver tree is from the Target dollar aisle about 8 years
ago. I was thrilled to find that tiny tree skirt with the pom pom trim a
few years later. I need to find a tiny Santa hat for Merlin the
squirrel! And a little stocking for him to hold.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek at my holiday decorations. I really love vintage Christmas stuff and look forward to putting it all out every year. And dread putting it all away. Ha! Hope you have a nice Christmas eve and day off tomorrow! I know I will.
