Vintage Blue Christmas



This long holiday weekend turned out to be sunny and cool....we were able to take walks along the Croton and Hudson rivers and enjoy the beautiful November weather...



After Dan left this morning to drive back to school, I started to pull out some Christmas decorations...



Vintage blue ornaments...











Wishing I could stay home tomorrow and continue playing and decorating...
...it will have to wait till next weekend!

Joan of Anything Goes Here is hosting Vintage Christmas Monday....be sure to check out all the other participants and their vintage Christmas treasures!

I'm sure we had blue vintage ornaments like that when I was young - but they were lost in the move between NZ and Australia. I have searched for years in France for vintage decorations, but never have I found one. Oh well - I just make Christmas decs with vintage objects instead. But your tree will certainly be beautiful! xxx Ange

Hello Laura... your vintage blue ornaments are beautiful... the old indents are so gorgeous, and the birds with their spun glass tails are my very favorite... I am having so much fun joining in on Joan's party too! Bisous... Julie Marie

We had exactly the same baubles when I was a child. They have brought back some memories. I don't know what happened to them either. Never mind. I have enough to trim hundreds of trees!!!!
Beautiful turquoise vintage Christmas treasures, Laura. XXXX

I love your beautiful blue ornaments, especially the bird ones, which were always my favorites on our tree. Unfortunately they were stored in the attic, and a raccoon got in and destroyed them!
Happy Vintage Christmas!

There is just something about the old that cannot be duplicated by the new. It just has the "look" and boy do I love the look of yours!

Hi Laura!
Your blue vintage ornaments are gorgeous for sure, but I especially love that wooden bird cage, so so beautiful with the Golden Nightingale print, I want it!
I'm a late party guest for Vintage Christmas Monday, but I didn't get around all the participants blogs yesterday.
I truly enjoyed my visit here!
Sending you warmest wishes from Boxwood Cottage in Germany
