I am so happy to be joining two wonderful blog parties today Vintage Christmas Monday with Joan at Anything Goes Here and BLUE MONDAY with
Smiling Sally. I will start with BLUE MONDAY.
A few weeks ago I was visiting over at Paula Grace Designs. The Artful Home had graciously given her three ornaments to offer in a give-a-way. Of course I entered! Imagine my surprise and great joy when Paula left me a message that I had won! I gave her my address and The Artful Home sent me this beautiful ornament entitled VINCENT by Paul Lockwood. When it arrived I was stunned....It is much more beautiful then the photos....mine don't do it justice but I tried. I have displayed it on an ornament stand I found at the thrift shop for $1 before I won....meant to be.
The blue and white swirls are amazing.
The light on it brings out so much texture and color that photos can't show.
I am so proud to have this work of art in my home. Thanks Paula!
Now for Vintage Christmas...
This isn't really 'vintage' but it looks old and I love it. Anyone who knows me knows I love my fur baby Charlie the Cat. I got this at a craft show years ago and while I don't let anyone use it I do display it.
I only had a few Vintage Christmas items, but today I was thrifting and found these two cute items.
First is a candle holder in vintage plastic
The faces are so cute...I love how they are snuggled up...
These next two were in a bag with some magnets but all I could see were these ANGELS
They are so tiny, the candle holder would hold a birthday candle only.. again I love the faces with their upturned noses...so cute.
So these are my Vintage finds....I have really enjoyed visiting everyone and seeing the wonderful vintage Christmas items...You can bet I will be looking all year long for some new treasure.
