It's time for the second half of this week's theme - Vintage. During my research of new and interesting ways to decorate that I hadn't thought about before, I found Vintage to be the most appealing. It's probably because many of the ideas are startlingly familiar - yikes, am I vintage?
I loved this first photo from Pinterest and the little caption that went with it - unfortunately, the link is broken, I had really hoped to read more.
We seem to have some photos similar to this one in our family album, black and white, tinsel on the tree, toys of this type, great family memories.
A great kick-off to Vintage rest-of-the-week can be found at the site linked below - there are some lovely vintage decorating ideas throughout Kelly's house.

There are a plethora of vintage cards on Pinterest, many leading to Ebay auctions. These were my favorites.
Outside of my UK friends, who had a Milkman? What's a Milkman you ask? Well, the sisters clearly remember having milk delivery, the glass bottles, the cream on top and remembering the Milkman at Christmas! (from the Ebay description for this card). I remember our milk delivery when we lived in England and the trouble I used to get into for breaking the foil seal and sticking my finger in the cream at the top!
