Christmas 2015

Christmas decor went up on 1 November this year, though I heard a lot of griping about "its too early" I ignored them and did it anyway. That way I get at least 2 full months to enjoy! 

Hmmmm....not my best work....

Couldn't pass up the vintage toy truck

One of my favorite stores in town is Homestead Handcrafts in San Antonio. I always find a ton of stuff!! Lots of vendors with amazing finds. So this year my mom and I went because I was on the hunt for more vintage Christmas stuff, I don't have enough ya know? And she kept griping at me every time I added something to my basket, saying "what are you going to do with that?" Or "you don't need any more" I turn around and tell her " if YOU didn't get rid of all this crap from childhood I wouldn't need to be paying triple the amount to recapture my everything " LOL

Vintage toys

I can't believe how expensive the cheapy dime store Christmas decorations from the 50's are nowadays! This plastic sleigh was a steal for $9.00

Vintage toy store display. Shout out to my cousin Susen Cortez for making me the fabulous snowman with the tall black hat!!

My tree with all my vintage ornaments 

I need more places for all my stuff!!

My latest creation! I couldn't part with him so I kept him! highly coveted pink Santa 

My Bethany Lowe wreath

I finally collected enough vintage ornaments in just the right colors to make a wreath for me! I found so many on Etsy but couldn't pay $300-$400 😁

My shabby display

I can never have enough little glitter houses!! I found these vintage style reindeer at World Market, I had to have them even though they were too damn pricy!!

The formal dining room China cabinet where I usually have my teacup collection, but the had to move out so more Christmas stuff could move in!

This year I created a new collection in my dining room hutch. I love the way green and red look together
