Deck the Halls: Vintage Ornament Finds

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Beautiful vintage Christmas ornaments from Babble.com

So, I have this thing about decking the halls for the holidays. I am of the rather strong belief that as many objects as one can muster should be handmade or old.

I have no idea why I hold this conviction so firmly, but I am guessing it has a little something to do with spending hours making ornaments with my mom and delighting year after year when I found the same old ornaments on my grandmother’s tiny tabletop tree. So vintage Christmas ornaments? Well, they’re my kind of love. Luckily for all of us without a solid stash of holiday decorations to raid through, places like Etsy and eBay are a virtual treasure trove of vintage holiday wares at really affordable price points. Here are 15 of my favorites to inspire your own tree trimming!
