vintage Christmas Monday part 2...and I am early!

where would Christmas be without Jesus?
these Holt Howard mice and Santa are from the 1950's...and a cool old gift box...
my vintage deer...can't get enough of them!
my most precious Christmas treasure...the Santa that rings his bells and his eyes light up (although a bit eerie)...this old Santa is in its original box from Sears for $ 1.29...and it has been handed down from my Grandpa...
and the cement doorstop Santa I have had for years...bought it shopping with my best friend Gail about 22 years ago at an antique store...and the Kiddie box of vintage greeting cards. Just a few of the treasures on display around my house...
don't forget to check out all of the Christmas Monday blogs listed on
thepottingshed-anythinggoeshere.blogspot.com, a wonderful journey awaits you...all of the vintage Christmas items are guaranteed to make you smile!
have a great week...I will be setting up for the Monticello Christmas show that begins this coming Friday at 8 am!!!

I love all of your Christmas treasures, from the bell-ringing Santa to the deer and even that box! I'm starting to love old boxes! And that Santa doorstop is so wonderful--I've never seen one of those! Can't wait to see what you'll show next week!
Happy Vintage Christmas!

I have seen that Santa who's eyes light up ~ I agree it is a bit different. Love the door stop! Judi

Hello
Thanks for stopping by!
My daughter is here for Thanksgiving but is moaning that she will miss the Monticello show! I probably have some of your stuff in the shop!
Hope it goes well!

I love Christmas treasures - not all go up every year, but half the fun is getting the box in...
