Vintage Christmas Cards & Bottlebrush Trees
Happy Friday everyone!
I wanted to share some pictures with you that I took of my pretty vintage Christmas cards. I bought them from my lovely Twitter friend @brookeslay, who is a fellow vintage bauble lover, and seller of the most the most beautiful vintage ware. I bought some other pretty vintage cards from her too, which I shall with you in the new year.
I was looking for a frame to display the cards on, when I had the idea of pegging them to the front of this little chicken wire cupboard. When I bought this cupboard, it was orangey pine and had glass in the doors with wooden slats. I think it even had funny little fabric curtains. I removed the glass, took a saw to the slats, and replaced with old chicken wire. Normally I display my tiny vintage teacups, but on this occasion I decided to put fairy lights inside. It looks so pretty at night, it glows like a little house.
I bought the little bottle brush trees from a funny little model railway shop in the village my parents live. When we visit, my Dad takes my little boy there to buy him a small car, train or plane. I found a box of these old trees amongst the piles of stuff (always rummaging!) and came home with these for a couple of pounds. Once upon a time, they decorated someone’s miniature railway. I think they add a very Christmassy touch to my little display!
