Happiness is opening a box of pretty pink Christmas things when you’re knee deep in decorating and about to quit. #vintagechristmas #treasuresandtrinketstuesday #pinkchristmas #vintagechristmasornament #shinybrite #bottlebrushwreath #treetopper #allthepink #therustytypewriter
* 3 SETS LEFT * It’s time! These beautiful angels are grouped together in sets of 6 bound by a made in Japan sticker. I don’t have the heart to separate them so I’m offering them by the set. Each set of 6 is $16.00 SHIPPED. Apologies but US only at this time. Please indicate how many SETS you want in the comments, then DM your email etc. I have 10 sets. Swipe for details, these ladies are old! Expect some bent wings (can be straightened), small age spots and repositioning of arms or legs as needed. They measure 5 inches total, angels are about 2 inches tall. Thank you! #spunhead #spunheadangel #spunheads #vintagechristmas

The holidays are such a busy time. I always have to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the little things. And by little things, I mean these totally adorable tiny putz houses at my mother in law’s house. I’ve never seen a church quite the same as the bigger one she has, and the two smaller ones have loops for hanging. Someday I’ll do a tree entirely with putz houses. Maybe this year, since the tree is still bare 🙈😂🎄. #putzhouse #putzhouses #putzvillage #vintagechristmas #vintageputzhouse #christmasputz #therustytypewriter

We have a lot of traditions in my family. Sometimes one of the hardest things is changing your traditions when you get married and your new in laws have different traditions. I’ve been pretty lucky to have in laws that are cool with us being at my parent’s for Christmas Eve, and spending Christmas Day with them. Today is the second time for a new tradition with my MIL. I’m helping her make her large batches of Christmas cookies. Today was chocolate chip oatmeal and peanut butter blossoms. Tomorrow is the real work though. We will make upwards of 12 dozen sand tarts by the end of the day. It’s fun and a great way to spend time getting to know my MIL better since we lived far away for the first 5 years of our marriage. Have you started any new traditions lately? What about those you’ve had forever? Share with us for #Happy😊Hoarder, there’s still time! Post until midnight PST! #vintagemeasuringcups #aluminummeasuringcups #vintagekitchen #christmascookies #familytraditions #therustytypewriter

This week for #Happy😊Hoarder we are asking to see your holiday best! Bring on your ornaments, your holiday traditions, heirlooms, your holly jolly favorites, and share them with us! Today I’m helping my mother decorate her home, a tradition we’ve upheld for the majority of my life. These kneehugger elves find a different perch each year. I love their happy faces and striped candy cane leggings. Passed down to my mother, from her mother, someday they’ll join the few happy fellows that live with me and the merry bunch will party each December. Have you shared yet? Remember you can share any time through Sunday! Let’s see that Christmasy goodness! #kneehugger #vintagechristmas #kneehuggerelf #kneehuggers #vintageholiday #kneehuggerelves #therustytypewriter

It’s a late, sad little #FestiveFridayVintage post for me, but that’s because I’ve been out spending time with family today. A holiday lights trolley tour, followed by cookies and “jingle juice” has made this a festive Friday indeed. These are the few figural lights I have collected. I think the Santa, snowman, and angel are very old based on the plastic they’re made of. Most of these still light as well! #antiquechristmaslights #figuralchristmaslights #santabulb #snowmanbulb #vintagechristmas #therustytypewriter

Time to share that special something that brings back great Christmas memories and tell us the story behind it!

This year was this first time I found this type of Bradford ornament. They have a figure on one side (deer, candles, angel) and say Merry Xmas on the other. I think it’s interesting that they have the shortened version of Christmas since that is so hotly debated now a days and these are vintage! The deer is my favorite. Obviously. #vintagechristmas #bradfordunbreakable #unbreakableornaments #vintagechristmasornament #bradfordornaments #showusthevintage #therustytypewriter
Miniature bottle brush trees + ironstone butter pats and molds = a match made in heaven! These tiny baby trees aren’t vintage but they are pink and purple so I’ll forgive them. Also, we just cut down our Christmas tree. It’s bigger, badder, and smells even better than last year’s tree. I can’t wait to decorate it. And that’s a happy Wednesday folks! #ironstonewednesdays #ironstonecrushin #ironstonebutterpats #ironstonemold #vintageironstone #bottlebrushtrees #vintagebottlebrushtree #vintagechristmas #therustytypewriter
