Vintage Christmas Monday!
It's Vintage Christmas Monday again with Joan's blog, Anything Goes Here! A box of pretty vintage ornaments! I want to collect more for my tree and also to make one of those amazing wreaths like Heather's or Pam's!Here is my white tree that I love! I think the ornaments really stand out well against the white.I love the little houses I found at Hobby Lobby a couple of years back. I painted and glittered them and added rhinestones for doorknobs.The top of my tree with a pretty bird and vintage millinery rose. I think my bird may need a crown.One of my favorite home made ornaments. Isn't that little snow baby the cutest?
A sweet little tag I made. I haven't made any Christmas crafts yet this year, but I'm definitely in the mood to do so now!
Happy Vintage Christmas Monday!Michelle xoxo

Now I'm off to see all the other vintage Christmas posts!

Dressing up for the holidays.....
I've started to dress up my home and my lovely vintage half dolls for the holidays!I added a bit of white feather boa and a vintage brooch my sweet mama gave me to this lovely lady. Now I think she looks like a Snow Queen, don't you?And this beautiful lady looks like she is ready to go to a fabulous Christmas party!
I found the wonderful silver glittered "Believe" sign and the adorable snowman card below at Michael's for only $1 each!
One of my favorite ornaments in my favorite color. Not vintage, but just as pretty as the old ones!
And I found this pretty angel at T.J. Maxx. She is a Nichol Sayre! She was only $8 and I saw one exactly like her selling online for $60! Isn't she lovely? More Christmas photos next post!

White Wednesday ( a little late!)
Sorry I'm late for Kathleen's White Wednesday! I found a gorgeous piece of lace while antiquing with my sweet mama last weekend! It is the perfect thing to dress up my very plain lampshade. I also found this sweet cream colored vintage apron with a cute little floral print. I found a few other goodies, but I am saving those to share with you later.

Antiquing with two sweeties....
My sweet mama, my adorable baby Dylan and I had so much fun at the antique mall last weekend! As you can see, Dylan loves vintage hats as much as I do!I took some photos of my favorite booths. We saw pretty pillows,lovely vintage photos, yummy vintage hats,old silver tarnished to perfection, beautiful lace, and inspiring vignettes.Hmmm~ I think I might need more cloches!I love the sweet little dance costume. I had one so similar to this one when I was just 5 years old. I so wish I had kept it!Look at this yummy booth! . Lots of white and pastels....and lots roses!I want to make a wreath with vintage Christmas ornaments, but I need to collect some first!I loved this amazing wall sconce! It looks so much better in person and I'm sure it would look a whole lot better on any wall that wasn't pegboard! And this piece was so gorgeous! I will show you what I purchased in my next post.

Sitting pretty....
I used the last bit of my birthday money on this pretty half doll I found on Ebay! Isn't she gorgeous?! I think I may be starting a new collection. (as if I don't have enough collections already!) She looks right at home sitting in my favorite teacup!

My dear parents have come for a visit. They are enjoying seeing sweet baby Dylan whom they have not seen since he was a tiny newborn! I can hardly believe he is 6 months old already! My sweet mama brought me some wonderful birthday presents. She made me this beautiful organizer with pockets made from the prettiest fabrics!

She also gave my some vintage rhinestone pieces,
this sweet vintage pillowcase with bluebirds that belonged to her grandmother,
some more little goodies including this lovely vintage button card,
a vintage pillow cover in a wonderful ticking rose print that belonged to her mother

and a sweet little purse with some spending money tucked inside!
We even did some antique shopping last weekend and I brought my camera, but I was having to much fun to stop and take photos of the pretty booths.  We will definitely do some more antiquing while she is here, so maybe next time I will get some photos to share with you.
