vintage xmas monday, et al

due to a houseful of 2 influenza-stricken children and 1 husband (make that 3 children)...i am more than a bit random...forgive me for not following the rules exactly today, joan! your vintage christmas monday has been so much fun - thank you...

i can see that i need to stop making disclaimers about angels, and how i don't really seek them out or collect them. when i sorted through my totes of decorations, i found even more. look at these sweet and yes, angelic faces!




my handiwork this week-end, made from both new and vintage buttons. i still have spots i want to fill in - but i'm loving this, over all. it was therapeutic to stick pins in this tree (and my fingers, occasionally) in between picking up used tissues, giving cool baths, and administering ibuprofen. !!!ack!!!



i don't know what to say - i found her this year at the thrift store.

and she is part of my sparkling winter white swap package, awaiting the chance to be mailed off to the southern US

she came in her original box

and i just have to tell you that after i posted about my vintage ceramic tree last week, another wonderful blogger, vintage girl at heart, left a comment pointing me to ebay for replacement bulbs...and now i have a lovely all white tree!!!

i thought i'd show you the original box it came in - wonderful, yes?

and a last set of angels - i had truly forgotten all about these girls





have a wonderful week - and may you all stay well:)

Sweet angel pics - love the bright blue eyes! My sweet SIL used to have a green ceramic Christmas just like your white one - that is the best.

Happy VCM,

Jo

P.S. Hope all your family is well soon.

How lucky you are and how great is blogging that it led you to the light...replacement lights that is! I would have sworn someone made that tree back in the day, but you got proof positive I was wrong!
