Mom’s Wonderful Antique Ornaments
My mother has a fairly vast collection of wonderful vintage Christmas Tree ornaments. She has so many that each year we’ve started choosing a color or two or three (or many more), and using just use a portion of the ornaments. This year’s tree was a wee one, so we only used maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of the wonderful ornaments. We decided to go with mostly just the old colorful glass ornaments. Some of them belonged to my Grandma Grace. Others were acquired here and there. The red glass pine cones I found for my mom to buy at DI years ago, so I’m hoping to inherit them. ;) The glass teardrop icicles were purchased many years ago at Cost Plus in California, the plastic snowflakes and icicles were my grandmother’s. The blue and red bells are from the WWII era–you can recognize war-era ornaments because they have paper tops instead of metal.
I really thought our tree this year was beautiful (who am I kidding, it’s beautiful every year).
