Vintage Christmas Monday

 Next week will be a busy week for me so  I am posting my Vintage Christmas Monday post a little early.
If you would like to participate simply click on her button on my side-bar and you can join in on the fun, and you will also see the other great sites that are participating in this weekly event during the holiday season.

  Here is a photo I found on Flickr - I thought it was quite ingenious and certainly shows what can  be done with a vintage truck during the holidays.  We don't have snow here in AZ at Christmas (or ever for that matter) but this photo reminded me of my childhood in Kansas where it snowed buckets every winter.

 This photo is of an old 45 record - do you remember those?  I remember the time when they were all
that was available.  I spent hours listening to Elvis and every time I see one I want to do the jitter-bug.

My brother and I used to spend hours doing the jitter bug in our living room in the little house in Kansas.
We had hardwood floors and it made it very easy to practice our dance "moves" - ah!! what sweet
memories.  It seems like it was just yesterday when he taught me how to dance!

This photo is also from Flickr.  This one appealed to me because of the creativity of the person with his red pots on his vintage stove.  That is a pretty ingenious way to decorate for the holidays!

This is an old christmas card from the l950's.  I just loved the sweet santa face.  Isn't it amazing that what is old has become new again.  It is a shame we can't do that to ourselves.  But wait--we can do that and I think all of us wonderful people in blogland have done just that.  We have expanded our world and touched that creative spark within us and let it shine!!

And last, but not least, good old Santa.  Perched in someone's vintage kitchen.  Doesn't he just look perfect among the spices .  Wish I could visit that kitchen, don't you?

Happy holidays to all of you and have a very happy Vintage Christmas Monday!

(p.s. please excuse the strange lay-out of pictures, as you can see I am still in the learning process on my computer:))!!
