Vintage Christmas

At 1515, it is a Vintage Christmas
Take a look of some of those decorations from the 
1940's and 1950's

the tree has all shiny brites
my Grandmothers set of blocks under the tree





the kitchen is not done yet, but I think a kitchen is almost my most favorite spot at Christmas.
It evokes the memories of eating leftovers with my Mom and Grandmother around the kitchen table late in the evening on Christmas.
Memories of the Christmas cookies made, the family holidays shared.

the Christmas aprons are hanging just ready for you to pick the one you want to wear

the tablecloth like my Grandmothers is set ready to go.

the angel oversees 

ruby glass and more shiny brites

bottle brush forest

the bookcase with some of those special finds


vintage Santa's and Snowmen

Gurley candles in all sizes

Santa sees you!

even Santa's in original packages.

For some reason, this picture I took of my cousins just says
"Christmas" 
to me.
They maybe adults by I see the children in them this time of year.

Happy Sunday.

The Christmas spirit has certainly arrived at 1515. I do enjoy your stories and photos of 1515 as the remind me very much of my grandmother's.
