Vintage


Today I'm joining joining Vintage Christmas Monday. This is a corner cupboard in my living room filled with family treasures and items I have found at household sales. I don't know about you but I love the look of vintage! These are odds and ends that I have found at sales. The tall snowman is actually a glass tree ornament.
I loved these bell angels the minute I saw them. They have a few flaws but that just tells me that they were enjoyed.
I will buy most any small wax figure that I find. You can't have too many carolers!
I remember the angel tree topper in the back and the carolers from my childhood but can't remember who had them.
This nativity was ours when I was growing up. This is not the original stable, my daughter uses that for her nativity.
These figures are made of wax and I have never seen any. I would love to know more about it. Can you help me out? It has actually held up pretty well for its age.
I think this shepherd is my favorite.
