Vintage Christmas Collection

Every year I look forward to opening the boxes that contain my vintage christmas decorations. I have been collecting vintage items since I was a child, going to garage sales and flea markets with my mom and sisters was always a fun weekend activity. I had a fresh tree in my own bedroom every year and decorated my tree and room myself. I have continued to add to this collection through out the years and James has gifted me with some wonderful new pieces over the past few years. I especially love the pieces that are still in their original packaging. There have been some wonderful reproductions made of vintage items but for me there is still something magical about knowing how long these little treasures have been around and feeling that others hands and hearts have found joy in holding them.~Jacque

I love when I get my totes down out of the garage and look at all my little vintage Christmas stuff. That is truly one of my favorite parts of Christmas. Thanks for reminding me, and by the way, you've got some AWESOME stuff in that photo! Take care.
