vintage Monday...the end...

a vintage Nativity set from Japan...that I decided I needed to keep rather than sell...
More vintage ornaments...packaged up to sell...
some of my candy canes...they are not vintage, but they are made from vintage glass garland beads...
and finally, the icicles I created from vintage glass beads and tiny antique ornaments...and doesn't this gnome look like he could be Santa?...he is home, couldn't bear to sell him, either! (oh, the joys of trying to downsize...but some things you just can't give up!)...
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday...we had a fantastic open house weekend...and thanks to all that came by! Even had someone from over 100 miles away come to the store- cuz she read the blog!
and thank you to Joan from anything goes here...for being the hostess of vintage Mondays! It was so very fun to do! thanks, thanks, thanks!!!
Merry Merry Christmas to all...

Hi, nice to meet you! I don't think I have seen your blog before.
Love your nativity. Wish I could visit your store. I am in NJ. Love the idea of the vintage buttons inside the glass ornaments. Have a Merry christmas!

Love the icicles and candy canes that you made from vintage beads!

And I can see why you would want to keep the gnome.

Thank you for participating in Vintage Christmas Mondays this holiday season.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
