Vintage Christmas Monday

Welcome back!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! I sure did, I put my slideshow with the "best of" shots from the day on Sunday, if you care to see it.
Can you believe we are already counting down Christmas? 
It seems like yesterday was summer! The years go by faster and faster each year.
But I love Christmas, it's my favorite holiday!
Did you notice the Christmas-y header and music? I will be in Christmas mode from now until Christmas Day!

Speaking of Christmas mode, my friend Joan over at The Potting Shed-Anything Goes Here is hosting a new carnival taking place Monday's from now until the end of December. This party is a great way to share and showcase some vintage Christmas decorations. And in case you aren't aware, Joan has a fabulous blog! I just LURVE her! She is always putting together fabulous vignettes with her vintage finds. She and I both have featured some of them on Thrifty Thursday's. I cannot wait to see what her Christmas vignettes will hold!
Be sure and check out Anything Goes Here and all of the participants of this vintage Christmas party.

But before you go to visit Joan, I wanted to share my entry for Vintage Christmas Monday.
I found these vintage Christmas balls a few years back at a little shop in Old Town Helena, that has since gone out of business. It was one of my favorite stores, so it killed me when it closed. The shop was full of delightful vintage and antique finds from furnitute to lines and Christmas decor.













I just love these pink and silver Christmas ball ornaments.They each have a different design.
A Merry Christmas Greeting.












A delightful winter church scene.













And the other two just have decorative designs:



















And that is my Vintage Monday show and tell. Be sure to stop by Joan's at The Pottingshed-anything goes here and see all the Vintage Monday participants.

I LOVE the holiday header. I noticed it the other day when I stopped by. I love your vintage Christmas ornaments. The color just jumps out of my computer screen.

It is especially fun for me to have you participating in my blog party since I enjoy myself so much being part of Thrifty Thursday.

Happy Vintage Christmas Monday. Thanks for letting me know your post was up...helps my party hopping!

Today's the first day I've felt the urge to get started on Christmas and the feeling didn't start out small...I want it all...now! Not going to happen, but I'll get there.

Love your look and music.
