More Christmas Decorating and Vintage at Home

I took a few pictures today, thought I'd post some--I never get tired of vintage Christmas!  I think I've finally got my decorating done.  I don't think the stuffed critters that I usually cram in a basket with white mini lights is going to make it out this year.

I finally got around to putting up my putz which I have to put on my vintage rolling cart.  There is no where else to put it. I'll still fiddle around with it, but it's mainly up.  Here's a glimpse of the top shelf.


Yeah, the lamp is leaning. I've since straightened it up.  I could have faked it and made the software fix it, but I would have chopped off the cool mini Santa with sleigh and reindeer that are on the rooftop.  The A frame and ranch houses were made from free patterns on retrorenovation.com.  Speaking of which, Pam there supplies an uploader for folks to add their vintage Christmas images here at http://retrorenovation.com/2013/12/14/upload-photos-holiday-decorations/  I've been keeping my browser open and perusing them throughout the day, I think there are 557 images as I speak, lots of cool vintage Christmas stuff!

I got a handful of old glass balls yesterday, here they are, they haven't made it off the kitchen counter.

 
And to end the day, I am sitting in front of my Evergleam tree, but not before I snapped this photo of my corgie napping in my chair.


Tomorrow morning a thrifting we will go!
