Vintage Christmas

I love old ornaments. I used to collect a lot of the annual ornaments when I was first married. Plus there are a couple still around from when I was a child.

I can remember these ornaments from when I was growing up. So they are close to 50 years old. I have a few more, but when we moved they were packed away.

Betsy Clark early 80's.

And I always loved children on ornaments. For years I collected Ferrante ornaments.


In the late 70's I took a ceramic class. I made this nativity set. It has a few bumps and bruises, but I still love my Nativity scene.


I'm joining Coloradolady at Vintage Thingie Thursday.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
