Christmas Past...

This is a cherished picture of my Great Auntie Tone's Christmas tree village. It is thought to have been taken in the 1950's. It almost looks like it could be in a store display window. Auntie Tone and my Grandmother always had the most beautiful holiday displays with trains and villages, Nativity Scenes, and the most stunning tree decorations with the tinsel and the lights and the erethral Angels! Note the mix of patterns in the wallpaper, draperies, carpet...Gotta love vintage!

How amazing! I have always been fascinated by Christmas villages and this is a very extensive one, esp. for back then. What a cool photo to have! Thanks for your comment, as always - hope you are having a good week.

What a great photo.

It just encourages me in my quest to keep building wee houses! Someday, I'll have a whole city like this!

That is so sweet! I remember trains and villages under the tree when I was little but I haven't seen anyone do lately. So sad. Happy Holidays!
