Vintage Santa Postcards

Too sweet to resist! The Santa with a frame of toys is a 1914 Bergman postcard.

Christmas Putz House Village - Vintage and Fabulous!

This beautiful vintage Christmas Putz House village was great fun to photograph and research. I believe this is 1920's to 1930's vintage (angular church, Coconuts style snow on roofs, bottle brush trees, red cellophane/gold trim windows). I just had to share the photos with you - I think it is a beautiful set and perfect for a nostalgic, old-fashioned Christmas.
