Happy New Year Everyone!
OK, I know I should be posting a New Year type post but I wanted to share my Retro Christmas with everyone before I start packing up and putting it away for the year. Today is our clean up day so I wanted to admire things one more time.
The Merry Christmas sign I found at an antique store in a nearby small town. It was ridiculously priced at $8 but I put it in our wreath on the front door and it made me smile every time I entered.
This Nativity Scene was actually my husbands grandmothers. When they were moving her into the new retirement home it was in the "toss"pile. I fell in love with it and had to salvage it. I also got one of her Christmas tablecloths and it really started this whole "retro"theme. Sorry for the lousy photo. I'll learn.
This was the "kids tree". I had it decorated in matching blue and pink balls for a while, but we always have a tree for the kids to hang their decorations on every year. They LOVED the fact that it was shiny and different this year. We found it at an antique store in town about an hour away. At $60 it was the most we paid for anything this year, but we HAD to have it :) I'm going to keep an eye out for a color wheel this year in my journeys!
Well I will start the take down process soon. It makes me a little sad since we had so much fun with it this year. I did manage to find some vintage treasures that will become a part of our everyday life. But I'll share those another day :)
