Getting Fresh with Vintage Ornaments

 
We hauled out the boxes,
lights and such gear.
Fresh from the attic,
 not touched since last year.
 
And each time with pride, 
I am quite tickled
 with what's inside!
 
 
 
 
My old tree from my youth
Not too tall.
Not too small.
 
But covered in vintage
and really, that's all!
 
Each year I find more
and I think "did I buy this before?" 
 
So you see, my talk
about vintage is tried and true.
I really do walk the walk...
And my favorite color is pink
and not blue!


Linking to Pink Saturday!
We do not have our porch
ready yet so this is it this weekend...

 
Pink Saturday BLOG SHOP

Be sure to check out my last post
to see my latest "eye candy" listings like
the shabby ornaments
in the above picture.

There's also a Victorian feather fan,
a French phone,
and Victorian shave mug,
 like the one shown above.

I think they are some of the prettiest
vintage goodies I've listed 
on Bella Rosa Antiques this year!
 
Enjoy the day,

Jillian

Oh what a lovely Christmas tree!
Covered in pink shiny jewels, I see.
And every year, it stands straight and tall,
the pride of the home, the belle of the ball.
I can see it makes you happy, I think
to tell the truth, you're tickled pink!

(I think every rhyming blog post deserves rhyming comments!

Merry Christmas!)
