O Christmas Tree

I finished my Christmas Tree this weekend. I decided since I couldn't do my big Christmas extravaganza this year I was going to do something different. So, I got a real tree to go on a tabletop, and decorated it with all vintage ornaments.

I've been buying ornaments at flea markets for a couple of years. I need more variety, but I have picked up a few things I like.

This beautiful one below was at the flea market today. I passed it up, but Greg went back and bought it for me. Pink was a much more popular color for ornaments at one time. I love, love, love this one.

I also have some ornaments my mom gave me, some of which belonged to my Great Aunt Ann. I'm not sure about the one below. I think it was one my mom bought. But I remember it being on the tree every year.

I think the one below was one from Ann. Regardless, I love them all.

Overall, I think I'm going to enjoy the tree. I do wonder how many Christmases some of these have seen. It's nice they're still being used and loved.

We live in much too disposable a world these days. Very little is created with pride to be an inheritance. How lovely that you have rescued these beauties.

I'm always amazed that things like this, and all the lovely handwork linens I've amassed, ever end up for sale. But, I guess when I'm gone they'll be for sale again so there you go!
