Vintage Christmas remnants, from my childhood!

All that remains! My mum passed these to me yesterday. The rest have simply shattered, over the years.





And don't you just love these?!
They are a little newer, 70s/80s, but nevertheless I was delighted when they came my way.

oh this is nostalgic for me. we had decs just like the santa in the wire circle and they were my favourite....sadly don't think my mum have saved them though. How lucky you are to have them.

Lovely, I remember my mum having some of the hollowed out ones and the santas are so cute.

Love them - I keep looking in charity shops as my mum threw all hers out !!!

Managed to get three the other day - think the tree might look a bit bare though

The box of Christmas decorations always evokes such memories when it comes down from the attic yet another wonderful thing about Christmas.

My mum still has a handful of the decorations we had as children too including the fairy dolls dressed by my sister & I.

I remember my Mum having the hollowed out baubles. They were among my favourite. I also remember the 'honeycomb' style of decorations!

There is nothing like the real thing and these vintage baubles are the best!

Hello sweetie...I just bought some vintage decorations at a car boot and I am trying to find an arty way of displaying...yours remind me of being a little girl...I bet my mum got rid of them......love and big hugs from a very cold Yorkshire...Polly and I are trimming up the house on saturday...

Oh that's such a coincidence! I took some photos yesterday of some of my Mum's old ornaments - they are very similar to yours! Amazing to think that some even came from my grandmother and survived the Blitz in Manchester!

These are lovely Sal. Especially like the pointy one. I have a few vintage ones but they are so delicate, most have been broken :(

Hello again!

I think this is right up your street. You know I did the Sarah Smith bunting idea well they have come up with a Lavenderhouse Challenge. Check my post for full details. I bet you could come up with some cracking uses for their products - you know one of your lovely clip boards or something.

Love Emma xxxxx

Gosh a bit more nostalgia, we had Christmas baubles just like those when we were little. I'll have to ask my mum if she still has any of them.
