Vintage Christmas Ornaments

Vintage Christmas Ornaments

I’ve posted about this before, but I thought I’d share it again as we all decorate for the holidays.  I have a collection of vintage Christmas ornaments.  Nothing spectacular, but they are family ornaments that I have managed to hang onto.  Probably date from the 1950’s.

Rather than hanging them from the tree, where they are temptation to the kitty cats, I hang them from my chandelier in the dining room.

They had a little cheer to the dining room, and they are safe from sweet little kitty paws.

I have a few myself, I should hang them on my light, instead of being put away in a box somewhere. Yours are so pretty.

I adore vintage ornaments. Luckily, I saved my mother's (and her mother's) and decorate a small tree with them every year. The main tree is usually filled with sea-type ornaments I have collected over the years.
(I may have just moved, but I bought a tree today! Not up yet, but still....progress.)

I have a handful of vintage ornaments from my grandparents. They always go at the top of the tree where the kids can't get to them. Yours are very pretty!

We have some family ones too very similar to yours! What a great idea to hang them on the chandelier!

Great idea Pam, and very pretty. I was in an antique store Friday and looking at vintage ornaments. They are at least $12 each. Remember that commercial that was on TV a couple of months ago with the guy driving over the bridge coming home, and there are woodchucks chucking his wood and he yells "hey woodchucks, quite chuckin my wood". Well, we've nicknamed our cat Woodchuck for the Christmas Season. She's having so much fun chuckin decorations...big and small.
