My great aunt passed away earlier this year at the age of 96. She had lived her entire life next door to my grandmother who passed away just before her 99th birthday last year. It was only fitting that they went so close together.
While going through her estate recently, we pulled out all of her Christmas decorations. Can you believe there were 3 huge boxes of Shiny Brite vintage ornaments and no one wanted them except for me!
They wanted to toss them!
So of course I ran with my stash before they all caught on!
Normally I do a gold and silver tree; but I was so happy this year to be able to have a part of my aunt with me and use her colorful ornaments.
So this year my theme is vintage
( except for the unbreakable plastic Target ornaments on the bottom, I do have a 2 year old after all.).
To go with the look is a vintage book page garland, cut in the shape of doves.
And photo-copied vintage postcards strung on my favorite multipurpose twine.
The suitcase was also my aunt's. I felt it went perfectly in the room.
All for a very vintage Christmas.
