vintage christmas monday

Joan at the delightful Anything Goes Here is hosting "Vintage Christmas Monday". . . and naturally here at Abode, where drool leaks from the corners of our mouths whenever we hear the word "vintage," we simply had to participate. This week we're sharing just a few items we have for sale in the store right now that fit into the vintage Christmas genre. . . we range from a Reader's Digest Mrs. Claus to a 50's felt-and-sequin-apron to styrofoam anything to beer bottle wise men (to be featured next week. . . betcha can't wait!).

One thing all these vintage decorations have in common is that they are all hand-made. When I was a child my favorite Christmas decoration was one hand-made by my mother. At a time in our little family's life when there wasn't much money for store-bought decorations, Mom skillfully fashioned a construction paper town to tape on the front window year after year. All the little houses surrounded by paper snowdrifts mesmerized me. After a while the houses faded from the bright winter sun, but they still held their charm.

Here's to all the hand-made Christmas decorations we have loved. . . .

Gotta go Hortense, it's abode's 20% off all things RED!
