Good morning everyone I hope you are all ready for the holiday. We would like to wish everyone a very "MERRY CHRISTMAS". Here are a some of the antique and vintage ornaments which hang from the branches of our tree. I would like to share with you.

Some of them have some paint loss but that's ok with us. They have survived this long being made of glass. So we give them the honor to hang on the tree. This baby with the bottle is Ray's favorite and the pine cone is one of mine.

They are made in Germany as well as West Germany and a couple of the pine cones in our collection are from France.

Isn't this little Clown cute! He just brings a smile to my face every time I look at him. This little guy on the bottom photo is another favorite of Rays. I haven't seen another one like this yet.
Ray likes to collect Black Americana goodies when we can find them.

Here is a trio of ornaments with a pink fish we found at the flea market.

This baby peek out of her little bag with a bow around her is a cutie.

We found this little angel faced one at a open house at '' COUNTRY VILLAGE"

Same with this bird with the crinkle wire. She was missing her feathers so I dressed her up with Peacock feathers.

I like these Victorian cones once filled with sweets & nuts for children. And the embossed die cuts of Santa are my favorite with all that tinsel.

This clown has lost some of his luster but he still looks great with the lights shining on him.

And an ornament for Tallulah and her sisters a glass German pup hangs from the branches.

We will leave you for now, time to get ready for Christmas Choir and Holiday tea at church today. May you all have a very "Merry Christmas" And hope your able to enjoy it with your family & friends.....Be safe...........Julian & Ray (Tallulah, Missy & Little One) Today I will be linking on to ~ VINTAGE THINGIE THURSDAY ~ , ~ VINTAGE INSPIRATION FRIDAY ~ ~ FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE ~ and also for ~ SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY ~ and also ~ Saturday Night Special ~
