A 1939 Santagram

This is cute letter from Uncle Ed to Shirlie ... it is a Santagram. Shirlie was actually a young lady 21 years old, but I guess Uncle Ed still thought of her as a little girl. After all, he had no children and she was his only niece. They don't make 'em like they use-ta!

DIY Christmas Holiday Wreath

The December-January issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine had this super DIY Holiday wreath made with little bottle brush trees, cardboard houses and a variety of miniature figures. As soon as I saw it I realized we have just what it takes to create this beauty right here in Vintages!

Susan has dyed and decorated a bunch of bottle brush trees in lots of sizes and colors. They would be just fantastic in a wreath.

We also have a number of vintage (mid-century) little houses and buildings that were originally used as ornaments and in Christmas scenes.

WOW! Perfect. Get them while we still have some left! ... and check out Living for instructions on how to DIY.
