Christmas in July

My hubby came through again for me-that's twice in one week! He found a huge box of Christmas decorations in the attic of an abandoned house and lugged it home for me. He called me earlier in the day to ask if I wanted it and in a momentary lapse of sanity I actually told him to just throw it away! I was feeling overwhelmed with "stuff" at the moment and didn't really want to deal with it. Knowing that I'd want to dig through it regardless of what I said on the phone, he lugged it home for me anyway. The box had been sitting in my garage since Thursday because, quite honestly, it looked like a big ol' box of crap and I wasn't too interested. Long story short, I finally dug through it this afternoon and the picture above is of the treasures it yielded! I had get to the bottom of all the ugly junk to find the box of lovely vintage ornaments. And to make it even sweeter, most of them have a touch of pink or silver. I've been a long time collector of vintage Christmas decorations that are NOT red or green so this was a nice surprise. These also help make up for two years ago when I knocked my entire Christmas tree into the fireplace while vacuuming. The casualties were high that day and I've been slowly adding back to my collection every since.


  1. Ohhh fun! I love vintage Xmas ornaments!
