Vintage Christmas Monday!


I love these Mondays...where we share our vintage ornaments and decorations.

Today, I want to share with you the things handed down to me from Peppy, my grandmother.

Peppy passed on years ago so these decorations are the hardest to put away each year.
Each year I get emotional when I take these lovelies out.
I got my crafty fingers from her...

First is this sweet Santa pillow she made:




And these are my favorite...her amazing napkin rings....all by hand.











And just look at these sweet match boxes...she put little felt faces on them.


Peppy adored cardinals so I am going search for a vintage cardinal ornament or postcard to add to our tree.

(We already have one on the tree in her honor but I think it would be nice to have one that fit the era she grew up in.)

Merry Christmas Peppy! We love you!!!

Those old craft items are so much more interesting when they have memories associated with them.

I have some red feathered birds I bought about 25 years ago. I can't remember if they look like cardinals. I bought them because my father liked realistic birds on our family tree. Personally, I was always bothered by dead-looking birds.

Your Peppy was a very crafty woman indeed. Now we know where you got all your creativity from. Those napkin rings are so festive and adorable! And the felt covered matchbook boxes so cute. How I wish I had been saving match boxes all this time. Precious family treasures especially since they were handmade with love. Blessings :) Tammy
