A Vintage-Style Christmas

Perhaps the title of this post is a bit too ambitious, since I could hardly claim that we decorate for Christmas in vintage style -- but we do have a few treasures packed away in the Christmas boxes that evoke the charm of yesteryear.

I had never really noticed this box of glittered ornaments before, but I discovered it as we decorated this year:

I love the understated beauty of these metallic treasures, with their frosty Christmas greetings:


  1. So lovely! Have the ornaments been in your family or did you buy them in an antique shop? We just trimmed our tree yesterday. It is such a joy to "discover" ornaments anew each year!

  2. Laura,

    The ornaments belonged to my mother's parents. I am determined to find some way to display them this year!

    I agree with you about discovering ornaments -- it's amazing how many memories they hold.

    In Christ,


I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much for stopping by!
