Vintage Christmas Monday

Hi everyone!! I survived Thanksgiving, and we had a wonderful time.  I am now up to my eyeballs in Christmas boxes, ornaments, flower arrangements and twinkle lights!

is having a wonderful party these next few Mondays until Christmas. We are celebrating our decorating for Christmas with vintage Christmas decor. Be sure and go by. There are lots of people signed up. It's not too late!

I wanted to share this little vintage Santa hanger
 with NOEL ribbons and bells.
It's hanging off my picket fence gate in the sunroom.
He is such a happy little fella!

These next few photos are from Spring Creek
Antiques and Tea Room in Ozark, Missouri.

A pair of sweet angels to light up anyone's front porch decor.

And an old Santa in a vintage sleigh!

These next two photos were taken at Leola's in Ozark,
at last year's Christmas Open House.
Love all these vintage Santas and elves.

What a great way to display vintage figurines...
 in old white pottery

I should have my decorating finished by next Monday.
Hope you didn't mind seeing some
 fun things from the local shops.

Have a great Monday!
And may all your Christmas decorating be Jolly!



  1. By next Monday???!!! Oh my stars, I'll just have the house clean enough to bring all my Christmas stuff in by then. Maybe I'll be finished by Christmas eve!

  2. Love all of your pictures. The faces on vintage Christmas things are a riot! xo Joan

  3. Hello Debra... what a darling santa door hanger... and how fun he gets to hang in your sunroom instead of cold outdoors! I love all of the vintage santas... I am always looking for vintage ones to add, you can't have too many santas! Can't wait to see all of your decorations up next week! Bisous... Julie Marie

  4. Your Santa bells are so cute, and I want every single one of those Santas in that one picture! I'm doing a little decorating every day, and now I'm thinking it's going to take me a whole month to put it all away, come January!
    Happy Vintage Christmas Monday!

  5. Great post! You gave me some ideas with the little fellas in the pottery. Love looking at all the vintage ornaments and figures. Have a blessed day!

  12. Very cute little vintage Christmas items. I've actually been to several little antique stores in Ozark. We have friends who lives there and we almost moved there about 7 years ago. I love your blog, thanks so much for sharing.

  13. I would love to do this but I'm afraid I can't keep up. It's that crazy time. Loved your pictures. When you get through with your house, would you come help me. YIKES!!!

  14. Your Santa hanger with the bells is fabulous. It has that perfect vintage Santa look!

  15. Boy Debra, these little Santas take me right back to my childhood! It makes me feel a little weird that we are calling all of these decorations vintage though, 'cause you know what that makes me!!! Thank you for the stroll down memory lane.

  16. I love it all, but really want the vintage Santa's and the angels. Christmas is the best. I spent all weekend putting out my stuff, it is like seeing old friends. Have fun and don't work too hard.
