Vintage Christmas Art


Hello Bloggy Friends. For this Vintage Christmas Monday hosted by Joan at Anything Goes Here, I'm sharing my love of vintage art........especially Christmas vintage art.




I've had these little reproduction Christmas bags for years. I just love to sit them around different places in the house, because I love the look of them.

Look at that sweet face!

Why is vintage art so pretty?




I found this bag this year while I was waiting in line to check out at TJ Maxx. Needless to say, I grabbed it as quick as I could. It was the only one I saw. :(


I've have my repro vintage Christmas platter for several years, and I just love it.

Usually, she sits on my Christmas mantel, but this year, I put her on my hutch in the dining room.
I want to wish all of you a very warm, and Merry Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our dear Saviour.

Hello again,
My comment was way too long..and I tend to do that.
Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment.
I completely understand how you feel and I felt the same way too, for years. I am not a loner and I finally faced that. I will never be "alright" completely..but I am making a new life for myself and am busy making someone happy again. We each make the choice that is right for us. I had NO intention of ever getting remarried. None. Time has a way of changing things. Some days when I wake up...I wonder how it all came to be.

Your little green cabinet is adorable. So is the color of your lovely blog!
Please come visit me again when you have time. I will be back. Lots to see here. :)
Merry Christmas!
Mona
