A Vintage Christmas

As we are now in the second half of November I thought it was safe to redecorate my blog!

I have also woken up the lazy Christmas Elves & have had them hard at work restocking the shelves of my Christmas Shop. I spend all year sear
ching out lovely vintage Christmas decorations to offer you at this time of year.

Of course I will be taking some to the Vintage & Handmade Fair next weekend & this Saturday I will be having a stall at the Rangeworthy Village Hall's "Winter Fair" too - this is on from 2pm - 4pm so if you are close by why not pop in & say hello?

For those of you further afield I have added some lovely Christma
ssy goodies to my online shop - Homes & Antiques magazine borrowed quite a few for a decorating feature which will appear in their next issue at the beginning of December!

There are angels....

Reproduction "feather" trees....



Kitsch bunny bells....

Reindeer (of course!)

China for your festive cuppa & much more!

So why not pop along for a browse & a virtual mince pie?

I also want to introduce you to a very festive girl - my new mini "Ruby"
She is a cracker!


  1. Ah... a Mini, how cute. I'd also want a red one :)

  2. Lovely festive header - I won't be putting up my decorations just yet though!
    Very jealous of your mini.

  3. Ooh,I feel all christmassy now!
    What a great car.My first car was a mini..and red too! :0)

  4. wow i love all your vintage festive treasures!
    how exciting that homes n antiques mag have borrowed some for piccys- fab!
    and how very cooooool is that mini ruby!!!!!
    what a wonderful time your having.
    best wishes x

  5. My first car was a red mini born in 1969 and I loved it. Love the new header and those reindeer are so cute.

  6. Jealous of the pretty car! I adore vintage decorations, we had an angel just like the 2nd one that my mum bought when I was little.... she went bald a couple of years ago & looked a bit scary so we stopped using her! x

  7. You've inspired me, in December I think I'll put some bloggy Christmas decos up

  8. Your new car's beautiful. Love the scottie dog on your header x

  9. Very festive :)

    My header only changed to autumn with a hint of christmas the other day so will have to wait a few weeks for another change of clothes!

  10. Are you getting the bonnet stripes? I love the white bonnet stripes on red. It makes a mini look like a mini!

  11. Oh such treasures. My Grandad had two little trees like that he used to put on his mantlepiece. They were unofficially mine. You have brought a tear to my eye to be honest!

  12. What lovely things - I especially like the glass baubles and the colours are so warm and pretty. Hope that you have fun at both fairs Jayne. x

  13. lovely glimpse of Christmasey things - gets me in the mood. Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

  14. Well the weather is certainly Christmassy today and maybe it's time to start thinking about digging out the decorations from the attic. I just hope the white stuff doesn't descend before Sunday.. On Monday it can snow all it likes.
    Has Ruby got snow chains?
