More vintage Christmas tablecloths!

I have been remiss in showing off my tablecloths,  but
my perfect excuse is that my dining table has been
covered with gifts, wrapping paper, tags...well, you get it.
& I stupidly injured my knee. Wah-wah!

Well, on with it...
Love this festive vintage tablecloth By Fallani & Cohn, designed
by "The Ryans", a husband and wife designing
couple from the 60's-70's.

So pretty!  A secret Santa gift I received a couple years ago.

This table Is on my porch. It is made of terrycloth, 
almost indestructible,  so perfect for a porch. 


These cute guys are on the front lawn.
A church sale vintage bargain from the summer.

Our stockings are hung, we're not nearly almost ready!
I've had my NOEL stocking since I was a girl, 
ya' know, like eons ago.  :)  

Such a busy but festive time.  If I hadn't sprained,  strained or whatever
the heck I did to my knee, I'd have more done.  Shopping has been 
miserable challenging, and cleaning...nearly impossible. 

Ha!  I hate cleaning anyway, but expecting houseguests on Friday.   
Mr. Retro has been doing way more than his share, thankfully!  

How is your week?
Are you almost ready?
Hope so! Fa la la la la....

Christmas Swap, Crafting & Decorating Stuff!

Tis the season for swapping, crafting & decorating!
Sharing some today.
First up, my ever changing tablecloth ladder.
Today it is sharing space with some vintage tea towels.

The 2 top angels are Tammis Keefe designs.
The angel towards the bottom is a Chuck Gruen design.
Do you love everything "angel" too?

I've made a few cloche ornaments for giving,
 and redid a couple others for my tree.

 

Joined in Vicky's ornament swap at Life on Willie Mae Lane
and received my fun package,
Love this pretty silver ornament from Michael's,
one of my favorite places!  She also sent me the sweet card.
 
and cute tags and goodies for crafting.
Thanks Denise for your thoughtfulness.
 
Thanks so much for hosting this fun swap Vicky!  I missed joining in
the first year, but am so glad to have joined in your 2nd Annual
Ornament Swap.  Give Vicky's fun blog a visit if you don't
already follow her!
 
My swapper to send to was Tuula of Thrifty Rebel Vintage.
 I worried about mailing all the way to Canada, but it arrived just fine.
Tuula was adding a new tree this year, a silver theme with green
 and pink accent colors.  I couldn't resist including a container of
silver, green & pink goodies for her to craft with. 
 
My favorite display!
I'm addicted to these vintage Christmas ceramics.  So adorable!
 
& lastly..........

 I have no idea how I accumulated so many MORE Christmas tins
this year...but obviously can't resist when I see them at thrifts and
yard sales.  Am I the only one who is guilty of  hoarding grabbing these?
Now...what to do with them?  :)
 
Have fun holiday decorating or whatever fun you
are planning this weekend!

2nd Vintage Christmas tablecloth tabletop

I told you I have lots to show, so here is my current table.

Though not as vintage,  I still love this tablecloth.
Fabulous graphics, vibrant colors...it had me at first glance.

Filled a Pyrex bowl with angel ornaments,
Added Holt Howard S &P babies, Noel candle holders,

And the fabulous elves by Vivian
that I so luckily won in her generous giveaway last year.
She is such a talented artist!  Fighting with my tablet to do a link,
but you can find her in my list of great blogs on the sidebar.

Unpacking my Christmas decorations, finally!
Do you love these vintage ceramics as much as I do?
Lefton, Napco, Holt Howard, Commodore, Inarco...
no matter who the maker is, they make my heart sing.
I will show them off again after my display is done.
I'll be back with more tablecloths too.

Have a very merry weekend!
