Vintage Glass Ornaments

It's been a very vintage Christmas decoration-wise in the Carter house this year. I decided to deck out the tinsel tree in old glass ornaments... and I love it! I love the shine! Don't you?

I'll always love Hallmark ornaments because they're what I grew up with. They're fun, themed, and make for great memories & keepsakes. The vintage glass ones have them beat on style and spark though. Let's just hope the tree doesn't ever fall!

Love the vintage look, it brings back such fond memories. Images of Christmases past when Christmas was quieter and far more demur and no one had mega-watt light displays keeping the whole neighborhood awake at night. LOL

Have a most Merry Christmas.


I absolutely LOVE vintage glass ornaments. They're what I grew up with, along with those satin-thread wrapped balls - remember those? I'm afraid to invest in glass ornaments, though, because we have a cat that enjoys climbing our Christmas tree! hee hee she's such a little toot! :P


Looks beautiful! I prefer vintage ornaments! Have a great Christmas! :)

I love your tree. Do you mind telling me where you found it? I'm on the hunt for a traditional, untraditional tree (ah, married life).

Taylor- the tree is a platinum fraser fir from Hayneedle.com, but it appears to be gone from the site now (probably OOS for the season). Hope that helps! :)
