I'm participating again in Vintage Christmas Monday hosted by Joan at Anything Goes Here. Be sure to go and check out all of the other blogs and their wonderful vintage items.
This bear and lamb were my stuffed animals when I was a child. They were both homemade.
The Bible I've included here isn't actually something I decorate with, it's too fragile, but I loved the red color in on the cover. It belonged to my great-grandmother and was given to her by my great-grandfather. I don't know when it was printed, but she passed away in 1932, so it's quite old. The Hearth and Home magazine is from 1929. I plan to frame the cover.
The teapot was my grandmother's, the ornaments were from my childhood, and the silver dish belonged to my parents, coming from their silver anniversary celebration. They've been married 61 years now. The big red pot was a yard sale find and I love having it in my kitchen.Isn't this a cute picture? It's dated 1948, another yard sale find I picked up strictly for the image.
I love decorating with old books, and this one was published in 1909 which makes it 100 years old. I bought it at a thrift store, because I loved the image on the cover, but I read it a couple of year ago, and it was a good book. It's always interesting to read an old book. The author had written it in what was then a present day setting; but reading it now is like reading history.
Don't forget to visit the other sites. Have a wonderful day!
