Our house is full of vintage Christmas ornaments. The credit goes to my mother in law who kept them all during the years. And of course, they are showing tear and wear of the years gone by, but I haven't had the heart to throw them away. It would be like throwing a part of my (and my husband's) childhood. This year we attempted to vamp up the most affected ones with a little paint and some glitter.
Well, who knew glitter could do so much?!
Our Christmas ornaments, both vintage and new, come into every color imaginable. It is quite a sight - not a circus-y one though, because we manage to keep it under control. However Eva wanted this year the tree to be mostly in red and gold, so we indulged her.
Now most of these vintage baubles are used as a centerpiece and some found their way on the tree.
