Vintage Christmas

Vintage Christmas Inspiration!
Beautiful vintage ornaments!
I am not sure where on Flickr I found this wonderful collage.
I spent the morning decorating our kitchen/family rooms. I used all vintage ornaments and mercury beads garland. I have a nice Santa collection. This year we decided to keep the decorating simple...only a few areas of the house, only a few Santas, and a small tree. I will take some photos of the decorated areas and share with you this week.
We have finished our Christmas shopping.
Have you finished your shopping? Have you started your home holiday decorating? I would love to hear about your decorating and shopping ideas!
Hope you have a great week!
Hugs, Sharon

Holiday Gift Tags

Today Don and I are just relaxing. It is just the two of us for dinner today so we are keeping it low key around the house. Don is reading and watching some football games. I am working on a special order of 50 Christmas gift tags...retro images were requested for this order. I have several CDs with Christmas images of vintage postcards and/or holiday cards. I enhance my images with Photo Shop. I am hoping to have this order completed by Friday evening.
I hope everyone is having a blessed Thanksgiving!
