Vintage Christmas Monday


Hi everyone!
Joan at Anything Goes Here is hosting Vintage Christmas Monday and I am so excited to be participating! I decided to post mine tonight since I will be going out of town in the morning.

I am slowly building up my collection of vintage Christmas item. I'm just going to go ahead and start with my favorite vintage item, my mother's old glass rolling pin. Of course, it didn't start out a "Christmas" item, but my mom made it part of our Christmas tradition. She would get it our every year and decorate it with Christmas greenery and cute Christmas candies, ornaments, etc. I was so pleased (ok, so I cried like a baby) when she gave it to me. It just brings back such wonderful Christmas memories from when I was a kid.


I'm kind of lacking on the decorations around it right now since I had to start from scratch. It just needs something else.....Maybe I'll look around tomorrow for something to jazz it up. Any suggestions?

I have two of those glass rolling pins packed away, and I think I will drag at least one of them out and do this! I love this idea, and I'm so happy for you that your Mom gave you hers, because I can tell that it means the world to you!
Happy VCM!
