Vintage Christmas Treasures

I wish I had more vintage Christmas decorations.  

I have shared my vintage angel collection, my tea cups and saucers, my salt and pepper shakers, and my Santa mugs in previous posts.

Today I am sharing a few more of my favorites.



This little white angel figurine/bust was purchased thrifting and was made in Japan.  She's sitting in faux snow but it could be clouds. 


Don't you love the eyelashes?  My favorite head vases have those eyelashes too.  Speaking of head vases...


Also made in Japan, from Napcoware, a little Christmas head vase with a fur and poinsettia trimmed hat.


She's my only Christmas head vase.  They are really hard to find at a reasonable price.


A pair of white leather fur trimmed baby shoes that were mine.  (That's vintage 1956)


Love them.


And last but not least, my Grandma's song book from the early 1900's.  A collection of 101 best songs, hymns, and carols.  Copyright 1925.

Enjoying a day off photographing my collectibles!

  12. I love those little furry baby shoes...just precious.
    Re: the song book...ever noticed how the old books show the grandmother with a night cap on her head, a shawl or something close around her.? Now, here I am a GREAT grandmother and not a nightcap anywhere to be found. :))
