Vintage Christmas

"Christmas is a time when you get homesick, even when you're home." - Carol Nelson

The holidays are when we long for home, for tradition and that deep sense of belonging we get from time with family.  Vintage decorations help create this warm environment, each object is infused with it's own history and yet they are ready to add to your own.

What are your holiday memories?  I remember as a child banging away on the keys of our piano, playing my own choppy version of I Saw Three Ships.  I loved when my mom would take a break from the kitchen, sit down and play Christmas carols from our faded and dogeared book of holiday sheet music.  There's nothing like the sound of real music in the house.

It's funny how nervous I get about creating these memories for my kids! This is truly lovely - thank you so much for including my jar!
