Kewpie Doll gift tags were my grandmother's.
Candy cane & GB man in a salt glazed pitcher.
I have a nice collection of salt glaze items. I'd like to share them with you one day.
My Vintage Christmas Post Card Collection is a real treasure of mine. I have cards for every major holiday.
Old pottery candle holder...love the Santa. This is NOT a mold item. Somebody actually hand molded the entire holder. His pack on his back is the "holder".
I love poking around at flea markets. When Christmas comes there seems to be a wealth of old vintage decorations just calling my name. Shown above are some of my treasures.
In the 1910's and 20's beautifully lithographed post cards were sent in place of our modern folded cards. I began a collection of these cards years ago. I have them for all major holidays and especially love the Christmas ones. Most have writing on the back and a post stamped with the date also. Heartfelt messages sent long ago to a loved one warm my heart each time I look at them.
If you will look closely at the Kewpie Doll tags, the little creatures all have different poses. My grandmother loved K Dolls and I kept these tags all these years. I couldn't bear to "use them up!"
I know these things are just "things" but some "things" are precious both in their looks and their "stayability". I tire easily of many decorative items, but not these. These are the stuff of my dreams.
