A Vintage Christmas

I absolutely love vintage ornaments. There is just something so charming about them. I have been collecting them for several years now. Last year my boys bounced a basketball into the bowl that I was displaying them in and ended up breaking about ten of them. That's when I came up with displaying them under glass on a cake plate. I love the way it looks and so I thought I would share this idea since, it is something you could incorporate into your own decor with new or vintage ornaments.

A vintage vignette under a glass cloche. So easy and yet, it makes such a statement!

I had to share this, I found this vintage tree and ornaments at a garage sale for $2. I was soooo excited. The vintage silver trees are so feastive and fun!!!

I just wanted to thank everyone for stopping by my blog and I apologize for the unexpected blog break! I've missed my blog friends!

  1. We have missed you! I was just sure you'd have a great post in store. I love the vignette with the little tree. My mom just gave me a cake stand she got for a wedding gift ... now I need to buy some vintage ornaments because they look beautiful under glass! You have a great collection, even minus the broken ones!

  3. I said "oh, no" out loud when I read about your ornaments breaking. This is a nice option though. I love all the colors. I really like that one you did with the girl caroler.
