I lived with my grandparents growing up and our house was a bit of a time capsule, so it’s no surprise that I love vintage Christmas decorations, music and movies. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s album White Christmas is still one of my favorites. If I hear the song “Baby what you goin’ to be”, I’m instantly teary-eyed and missing my grandparents so much it hurts.
Somehow we always had the branchiest, most retro-shaped Christmas trees too. Take a gander at one of ours from the 1980’s. That’s right, we were still rocking the tinsel which had to be carefully removed each year and saved in an old shoe box.
Here are the things that make my vintage Christmas heart all happy.
Pink christmas trees
Winter paint by number scenes
Faux snow globes
On Christmas Eve you can find us in front of the fire, wrapping presents and watching It’s a Wonderful Life. This year I’m hoping to stay awake long enough to see the ending. What? I’m old.
Are you guys vintage Christmas fans? If not, what’s your holiday decorating style?
