Vintage, Vintage and more Vintage

My pal Joan is hosting Vintage Christmas Monday on her fabulous blog Anything Goes Here. Here I am, posting on Sunday. Mom always said it's thoughtful to show up a bit early to a party to help the hostess with any last minute details.

So, here I present part 2 of The World's Most Fabulous Junk Trilogy I started on my last post. Let's have another peek inside Fun Junk in Olympia, Washington...

Up next, Part 3 of the Trilogy.

Hi Sweetie..
I popped over from Joan's as I just adore older Christmas decorations. Boy did I hit the jackpot. You have more Christmas ornaments than anyone I have ever seen. I love all of the little church pieces that you have. They are so beautiful.

I also noticed that you have some beautiful little ornaments that have that sunken in center with the bright colors. OMG, I remember seeing those as a child. They were so beautiful and sparkled so on the tree. I thank you immensely for that memory this morning.

Beautiful post sweetie. Just beautiful.

I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop over and say hi. I would be so honored to have you sign up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs...Sherry

Happy Vintage Christmas!

Tell there a lumberjack convention in town! Those shirts are a hoot and so in keeping with the theme of Christmas! My g'daddy always got a new one at Christmas time!
I love the little cardboard houses especially the churches. That's the ones I look for.
I remember as a child, Mother would have a village of them under our Christmas tree.

OMG look at all the vintage glass baubles and the pretty putz houses, wow! Is that all yours?
Warmest wishes from Boxwood Cottage in Germany sends you

Sammy Girl said...

Oh - my - gosh! Which day were you there?? We were there on Saturday .... (daughter ran in Seattle Marathon on Sunday)
I see some of the bits I was lusting after, er, I mean thinking about buying!
I did get a few bits, but left so many treasures behind. Think I'm going to steal their fish tank filled with ornament idea, though!

Good morning. I just wanted you to know that I featured your plaid shirt picture in my recap of yesterday's party. All of your pictures were feature worthy, but I wanted to do an unexpected pick! Hope people who may have missed you come by and see your great post! xo Joan
