Vintage Christmas Monday – More Kitsch

Tomorrow is the last day of the VCM blog party.  Thanks to Joan at Anything Goes Here for being our hostess.

I'm going to end this party with some of my most fun and kitschy decorations. 

If only I had a time machine I would set it to take me back to November 1957 and put me right into the middle of Woolworths.

I think this gem probably dates to around 1971.  It has openings all around so you can look in and see Santa and his reindeer.  The glitter, the mirrors, the little ball feet!  I have the original box which also has circle cut outs so you can appreciate the decoration in all it's 3D glory.

Isn't this little elf-ette just the cutest.

This old sled is plaster and heavy!  My BFF Beth created the snowman riding in the sled.

  4. You just have the best Christmas ornies and ideas! Loved the wrapping of the art on the wall, and your collection of vintage ornaments is truthfully drool worthy. I will be working much harder in 2010 to find the best vintage goodness that I can up here in Jersey. Once again you have inspired me. Wishes for a very Merry Christmas.

  8. I hear ya – I’d love to be transported back into the old dime stores & old department stores (Goldblatt’s with their candy counter in the center of the store where we got a paper bag of bridge mix). Thanks again for all the vintage fun & memories!

  11. Hi Suzy,
    I may have told you this before, but it’s a good thing we live so far apart. If we were in the same town, I would be SO pulling your ponytail over this fabulous junk. We have so much of the same stuff! I have a sweet Christmas Dream Pet mouse I would love to send to you as a little gift…please advise!

  12. Love all of your Christmas decorations! How fun… I need to get a feather tree. Yours look adorable! Something to put on the list for next year…
    I have a few vintage Christmas collections, including a pastel winter village. I leave it out a little longer because it makes me smile so much!
    Hope you had a Merry Christmas:)

  13. Okay I was going to leave a comment about your wonderfully positive New Year post, but I can’t NOT comment on all this “Kitschmas” stuff! I particularly love the reindeer display but it’s hard to decide–they’re all sooooo cool. I swear girl, you could have one heck of a garage sale…and if you ever do, I’m taking a road trip!
