It was a beautiful morning at the flea market...clear and cold...we were all wrapped up in our scarves and held onto our hot coffee cups to warm our fingers... I found these vintage ornaments and thought I would share them with you in their "as found" condition for this first Vintage Christmas Monday! (I'm a bit early but wanted to play along......I am off to bed and then a full day of work tomorrow so this is my early contribution to this blog party! )
I kept this little tinsel nest under a glass cloche all year... now it has an antique golden "egg" and "twigs" of vintage glass beads...
A vintage red bird flew over to sit on the tinsel nest...
You may remember this post done back in September...these pretty vintage turquoise ornaments (perhaps teal or aqua?) are normally sitting in a pretty blown glass jar in the dining room (to admire all year long). ...(click here to see Touch of Turquoise post)
I have been collecting vintage Christmas items for as long as I can remember and can't wait to start digging through the boxes in the attic to share some more with you next Monday. To see more participants in Vintage Christmas Monday visit Joan of Anthing Goes Here. This will be fun! Looking forward to a short work week because of the Thanksgiving holiday... ...I'm thankful for THAT! :)
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
