Christmas Vintage

It’s almost Christmas. I love this time of year: the fluffy snowflakes, red noses, santa suits and winter clothing. Searching desperately for the perfect Christmas tree and decorating it… Wonderful!! Talking about that…  this year, it is time for vintage. I was thinking to choose something special, some old or retro style ornaments that could bring me back memories of my childhood. A touch of vintage, elegance and holiday spirit…

Let’s Laugh!!
If Microsoft ran Christmas…

Each time you bought an ornament, you would have to buy a tree as well. You wouldn’t have to take the tree, but you still have to pay for it anyway. Ornament/95 would weigh 1500 pounds (requiring a reinforced steel countertop tree), draw enough electricity to power a small city,

take up 95% of the space in your living room, would claim to be the first ornament that uses the colors red/green together. It would interrogate your other decorations to find out who made them. Most everyone would hate Microsoft ornaments, but nonetheless would buy them since most of the other tree types wouldn’t work with their hooks.

If the NSA ran Christmas…

Your ornaments would have a secret trap door that only the NSA could access in case they needed to monitor your tree for reasons of national security.

If Thinking Machines ran Christmas…

You would be able to hang over 64,000 ornaments on your tree (all identical) at the same time.

  1. What do you mean, if the NSA ran Christmas?

  2. I love the robot ornaments, or maybe Christmas Automatons. Next year I want to have an all-robot tree.

  3. Thank you.nice sharing.i find this website at google. the social site is very popular now and can make more benefit.

  4. Those robots will have to be on my next Christmas tree. R2D2 ftw!

  5. Absolutely, Richard :))

  6. Hi there! thanks for posting my pictures of the two handmade ornaments – they look better on your website than on mine! lol. To answer your question, we DO ship worldwide – just choose “International” in the shipping dropdown list! Cheers!

  7. Thank you for your reply… your ornaments are absolutely lovely!! 🙂

  8. Those ” Victorian style Christmas tree ornaments” are much easier to make then you may think! They use to be sold in craft kits, Maybe, somewhere, they still are! All you need are some Styrofoam balls, ribbons, plain short crafting pins & fancy quilting pins (pins with fancy heads), some fabric bits…. Those pearls you see are the heads of pins. What ever you fancy, & get to stickin’! Don’t worry about buying & shipping, customise your own! ; )

  9. The method is obvious. The hardest part is getting a good symmetry because very few of the balls are perfectly round. Also, if you click my website link, you’ll see an amped up version that I started designing two years ago. The pin colors you see are ones that I blend myself to match the trims that I find. I have to admit that after 20+ years of making and selling these ornaments, I still love it!

  10. I sure did wenn I was young! (love making them I mean)
    One of my best Holiday memories was of making these!
    Seeing this post now…. I’ve very tempted to go gets me some supplies! ; )

  11. Jeanne, I didn’t mean to imply your’s weren’t Beautiful or time consuming to create. Sorry if it seemed I was simplifying the process. I know it takes time & skill to conceptualise then execute the ideas for each. I was just suggesting she might want to try & make her own if she had a mind to. Und please to excuse my typos (gosh I hate seeing, after I’ve already sent, that I’ve made so many) LOL

  12. Hi Sophie, No worries! I started out actually making them with the kids that I had in my home daycare years ago, and just fell in love with the process. 20 years later, they have evolved somewhat – lol!. I have a hard time not seeing an ornament in just about everything 🙂 I’ll spend a day or two on a design, walking by it, change this change that until it feels right. I also have a fabulous source for Vintage trims in our locale. I’ve had it on my plate to post some of just the trims and pins so people can create their own designs too . . .so stay tuned!!

  13. I’d love to see them when you do <=)
    I'm most definitely going to create some for my own trees for next year.
