Ray had set up this vignette with vintage COKE items and the bike belonged to his father when he was a young boy.
The tree which sits in the living room is at least 9ft tall. And is decorated with vintage and new glass ornaments which I've been collecting since 1983. And enough lights I'm afraid to see the power bill! LOL
At the foot of the tree are a collection of vintage toys, Ray has collected throughout the years. He made the Chess board in High School not to many years ago. (lol) And the antique Edwardian pony was a purchase from our friend Rusty who deals in primitives.
In theses two photos there is a collection of vintage putz houses and Santa's, deer's and lambs that decorate the mantles and table tops throughout the house.
This is a primitive corner cabinet we found at TWO WILD ROSES event in Redlands. It goes wonderfully in the same room with our larger primitive corner cabinet.
We luv to collect children's Christmas books from the 1890s-1910. I just adore the antique images of Santa fat or skinny he is tooo CUTE!
Well I hope you enjoyed the photos and I will be joining in on some show and tell party's. So if you get a chance to take a look at all our fellow Blogger's post, that would be great. We have gotten some great decorating ideals from some of them. Hope you do too!
