My Collection of Antique & Vintage Christmas Ornaments – It’s like seeing old friends…

January 9, 2013

Hi, Happy New Year to my friends!  Sorry that I have not spoken to you in a while.  The holidays were tough this year with so much sadness in the world.  I found it difficult to write and although the holidays are over, I want to share with you my “other” love, antique & vintage Christmas ornaments.   As with my first love, jewelry, my mother began my collection of ornaments when I married and decided to make a major project decorating for the holidays.  Ever since, I have collected antique Victorian and vintage of all decades each year adding to my collection and unfortunately, always breaking a few!  I begin decorating, I hate to admit, before Thanksgiving. Why not? After all the effort I want to enjoy it for a while.  When I see each ornament after a year of hibernation I feel like I am seeing old friends.  Here are a few photos of my ornaments in their storage boxes and then on the trees.
