A Few Favorites from Monday's Vintage Christmas

While visiting the participants of Vintage Christmas Monday yesterday I was struck by the love and care that people took in their choices and the writing of their posts.

It was clear to me that this blog party inspired people... bringing back fond and joyous memories of their's and other's past Christmases.

Thank you so much everyone who participated in and visited our first Monday Vintage Christmas party.

And here are some of my favorites.

Sue Bee's darling vintage ceramic Santa
found in a thrift shop and lovingly brought home.

A family treasure Pepsi Santa that
Cottage State of Mind risked life
and limb to get a picture of for her post.

Recent flea market finds that Laura of 52 flea included
in her lovely post.

And Gypsy Brocante's Vintage Santa who is enjoying
both being out year round and his World Wide Web 15 minutes of fame.


  1. Love all of those vintage treasures! Have a blessed day and a Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. It's a hit! The first VCM was a fun party, great job Joan!! I'm already looking for some of my stash to share for next week ...

  6. Joan,
    This is a great idea for a party. Thanks for getting me listed. I got my actual Vintage Christmas Monday post up later last evening than I had hoped but by the time I dug out my vintage stocking (how come it's always in the last container you look in!!) Monday was almost over!
    No worries....I found all my other vintage goodies while I was digging for the stocking so I will be ready bright and early next Monday :-)
    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

  7. Thanks so much for starting this party Joan! I had so much fun looking at everyone's treasures, and discovering some great blogs too. Can't wait 'til next Monday!
    Happy Thanksgiving!
