Let's Talk Vintage #14 - The Take Down: Vintage Ornaments Galore

Hello and Welcome!
You've landed smack dab into my fourteenth
"Let's Talk Vintage" post.
Stay awhile, and link up!




 
This week I am sharing how my dining room
 table looks after we start taking down the Christmas trees.


 
Ornaments. Everywhere.
 

It's not pretty people.

 
Well, actually, it IS! 

Let's Take a closer look.
 

You can see that some of them are on trays.
I do this so that while I am removing them,
there is less breakage.

The mixture of hues creates some
serious eye candy!
Like sweets from the Sugar Plum Fairy.
 


It has taken a long time to collect these,
I do not want to lose any.
There are some new, mixed in with the old.
 
And this year is a whole new opportunity
to find more vintage!
 

So how about you, what did you do
or find this week that was inspired by vintage?
 
Last week we saw
 

Roselle of Seaside Rose Creations
shared her farmhouse
Valentine sentiments 


 
and Haley of Tuneful Journeys
shared her Christmas Tea with a
couple of mischievous elves!
 
 
 and a Vintage Green
shared some great vintage
booth displays!
 
Now it's your turn: Let's Talk Vintage!

What beautiful ornaments. I do the same thing, and place them on the tables and trays. I take forever to get things put away. Are you making this a place to sell old ornaments too? Have a great week. Blessings, Martha

Wonderful vintage ornaments! I do luv them - gave boxes of them to each of my niece and niece-in-laws
for Christmas and they were a hit ")

Today I posted a vintage tea time - hadn't done one in waaay too long, so found some camera batteries, played around with some fave rosy china and voila! Vintage Tea Time!
Come for Tea...?
