Vintage Decorations!

One of my decorating goals this season
was to find some vintage
ornaments at Goodwill.
Well Mama found them!
I found these old glass painted ornaments!
I love the boxes they came in just about
as much as the ornaments!

Check out these perky little soldiers!
Santa is preaching to them!
They really want to make Santa proud!
I found these old ceramic soldiers
at Goodwill!  I got the whole bag of
10 for $2!
I just love them!
Stand tall little soldiers!
Make Mama proud!
And then there were three little
Mama Angels!
Oh how sweet are they!
They are wearing their fancy holly dresses
in honor of Mama Holli!
Bless their little angel hearts!
If you look closely the middle
baby angel has lost her wings!
"Oh no!", says Mama Holli
Then Mama Holli's own baby angel says,
"It's O.K. that just makes her special!"
Out of the mouths of babes!
We all have scars in one way or another.
Those scars be it emotional or physical
make us who we are!
That makes each of us unique
and very special!
Wise beyond her years that
baby girl is!
Step up to the stage Santa Mouse!
Bring your honey too!
Mama Lynette gave this Santa Mouse book
to my kids many years ago!
I recently found this old ceramic couple
to go with the book that they adore!
Look how cute they are!
Yes they are a bit cross-eyed but
Mama still loves them!~
What a cute little couple they make!
Last but not least......this special
candy cane candle holder is proudly displayed
every year!  My kids made this a
long time ago!
All they did with their baby hands was glue
candy cane sticks to a glass and tie a bow
around it!  So sweet!

So bring out the old and the new!
Spread the love around your house!
Make memories and enjoy!
Christmas is magical, embrace it!
