Vintage Sentimental Christmas tree!

I wanted our tree to hold sentiment this year.  
I decided I would look for some old Vintage Christmas post cards, and incorporate those along with some old vintage ornaments, mixed with a few modern and hand made ones.  Let's just say it is eclectic for sure!


I also bought a new tree this year, pre-lit and with flocked in snow.


I love it!


I found a few vintage post cards locally.


Then in Savannah, I found some too...


HOWEVER, I lost them, or left them in the hotel:(

I wanted to include my Grandfather this Christmas...


and of course myself, after my Grandfather dressed me up...
I actually remember these days.


My Grandfather would sing the song, one little, two little three, little Indians, and I would spin around and giggle my head off...what fond memories.



Then I made a few vintage post cards myself using the Graphics fairy website.





Looking above from the family room...


Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
I have two parties tomorrow..and I must get my Christmas shopping DONE!
Please tell me I am not alone with feeling like there is NOT enough time in the day anymore.
whew...looking forward to the New year for sure!

Your tree is my very favorite one. I have become a big fan of flocked trees and the vintage postcards and pics really make an already spectacular tree even better.

You are NOT alone! There is never enough hours in the days this time of year.

Your tree is beautiful. A flocked tree is my favorite & I wish I dared flock my own tree. It looks just beautiful, Debbie! xo Diana

I love the personal pictures you placed on your tree. and I love vintage postcards. Your tree is beautiful for sure -Can people see it from the street as they walk or drive by?

What an absolutely beautiful tree. I think it's the prettiest one I've seen this season. I LOVE trees with nostalgia. I have one myself. I adore all the ornaments. I've tried to inventory them so the kids will know their history, but THAT is a job. Your photography is great. I'm just learning and some of my blog pics show it. Merry Christmas.

It's officical. You have the day off. In fact, we recommend you take the whole weekend off. But, I know that's not going to happen in a blue moon. But the tree is super-duper. I love the card idea. The story of the lost postcards is great and made me giggle silly. OK, I don't want to see you till next week. Off to click a goggle+ and ad for you. Ho-Ho-Ho, I know you believe, Kate - The G.B.

your tree is gorgeous! I am on the look out for a flocked tree, also. I'll likely buy it at an after Christmas sale =) I'm taking before Christmas to relax, as afterwards, baby is due in March and I have waaaaay too many projects to finish before then =)

Debbie, your tree is beautiful. I love that you included a photo of your grandpa. How very sweet. I'm doing a traditional tree this year with all the old ornaments that the kids made growing up.
PS: I love the stenciling around your chandeliers. Where can I buy something like that to do around my chandeliers???

Debbie I love what you did with your tree, but what I love most of all is how you used clothes pins as the means to hang those vintage cards and pics. How clever! Including pics of loved ones, especially those that have passed is a wonderful way to remember where we came from and how much we miss them. The pic of you as a little one is sweet. This is one A+ tree. Thanks for sharing.

It is just magical, Debbie...just like you. You make everything so much fun and I adore you.
I am going to make some of the Graphic Fairy's cards for my tree next year. I may even talk Mr. Sweet into buying a larger tree again. If I clean out a closet, maybe we can store it there instead of hauling it up and down attic stairs.:)
Have a fabulous weekend...and get that shoppin' all done.
