I decorated my Christmas tree with my 9 year-old daughter this year but I did it like I always decorate it using vintage ornaments. The ornaments are from my grandmother and my childhood. There are real eggs that my grandmother made into ornaments, little dolls, and weird mushrooms in the collection.
There is this little flying thing that must be quite old.
I remember this little Santa from when I was very small.
I believe my grandmother made this egg.
There is a mushroom with a Christmas elf inside and another egg with an angel in it. I'm not sure what mushrooms have to do with Christmas but there are a few ornaments with mushrooms in them.
This little doll looks a bit rough and she's gotten rougher over the years but it cracks me up that a little angel is so bad looking. I used to tell my children that she was a naughty angel and that is why she looks the way she does.
There are also a few fun shaped ornaments that don't really look so great but I still hang them each year.
My tree full of vintage ornaments is so pleasing to me.
