Basement Bargain Treasures

My father has a thing for houses, he seems to collect them like I do chairs, only mind don't pay rent.
In his latest conquest he came upon some vintage ornaments in the basement.
Knowing how much of a Christmas freak I am, he called to see if I wanted them.
Well of course I do!

I think the pink bells are my favorite.

These gold pinecones would look great on the basement tree.

Some of the pink ornaments will go on my daughter's tree.

Just look at this indented one with the Santa inside.
In fact, I saw a repros being sold of this one.

The box is just full of vintage ornaments.
I can't wait to fill a bowl of them.

Thanks Pop!


  1. Lucky, lucky you! These olden ornies are glorious! I have some of those bells from my childhood but they don't have the snowy things on them. I too love the one with the little Santa inside. You're going to have so much fun decorating.
    Be a sweetie,

  2. Those ornaments are really beautiful. Even better that they were handed down to you from your dad.


  3. Wow! You lucky girl! They are lovely! I think my favorite would be the pink bells, too, but I do love that indent with a Santa, too! I can't wait to see more of your Christmas decor!

  4. I could kiss your Father! How awesome that he brought those over to you.

  5. Lucky! These are gorgeous old ornaments. Exactly the kind that I am always hunting for. There is no replicating the look and colors. I love them so! Getting ready is the most fun part for me! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
