Vintage Christmas Decorating.....ooh la la

I just had to share my newest Vintage Victorian Christmas Bear with you.....I loved it so much I turned it into a card! I have been working on Christmas pieces in my studio and these old pale blues and creams are really coming out so charming looking......they remind me of an old-fashioned Victorian Christmas! Now if I could just get my family into that theme this year...ha....seems they all enjoy the "modern" looking stuff.

What is your favorite Christmas decorating Theme ?

Awww..he's so sweet, Wendy!! Thankfully, I'm with 2 guys in the house who could care less about decorating..although I bet Mikey would love a Star Wars Tree..LOL!

I'm an old world traditional Christmas gal. Lots and lots of colored glass figural ornaments...both old and new. Last year I took all the ornaments off the tree the day after Christmas and then put all white ornaments up. White roses and birds and snowflakes and mirrored crystals. We rarely get snow here in Portland, Oregon. The white ornaments reminded me of growing up with snowy white winters in Alaska.

Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Theme? Hmmmmm, I'd have to say a hodge podge of everything my two boys (now grown) came home from school with, and a store bought orny here and there! Not very romantic is it? But I wouldn't trade it, truly!
Your bear card is awesome Wendy. Are you going to sell them? Hint, Hint ;-)
