ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ~ A SpArKliNg Blue ChRisTMaS!*!*!

YESTERDAY we woke up to a light "Dusting-Of-Snow"...  - That's ALL IT TOOK to get me in the Christmas Shopping HoLiDaY Spirit...  I wanted to "SHOP-LOCAL" this year and that I did!!!  Ninety percent of ALL my ShoPPing was acquired in our Quaint Historic Town - of Cedarburg, Wisconsin...   The more I get in the Spirit of things ~ the MORE ViNtaGe ChRisTMas Appears in our home...   

 I was missing the ~*~HoLiDay SPaRkLe~*~ of my Rare ViNtaGe Blue Christmas Trees...   It's taken YEARS of Collecting to find these "less commonly seen" 
B*L*U*E Bottle Brush Trees... 




I remember paying "top dollar" for this GoRgeOus, larger-sized, 1950's Bottle Brush Tree...  It's a Beauty!!!  




Blues work soooo well with "SHaBBy-Whites"...








 I picked up this Sprig of Blue Glass Balls - YESTERDAY, while shopping in Cedarburg...  I loVe the varied shades of blues & of course the PaTiNa!*!*!




My friend Jenny surprised me with these ViNtaGe Silver-Snowflake & Aqua-Blue Ornaments...  Such a PeRfeCt Adornment for my "Blue Christmas Vignette"...




I know I have a few more blue trees in the cupboard - somewhere, along with a large Bottle Brush Wreath...  I'm hoping to add "just one more" Blue Tree to my collection this year...

  1. Wow! I have never seen vintage blue trees before (I have seen blue trees from Hobby Lobby before, but I don't think that counts! LOL!) They are fabulous!

  2. I love all the blues. I know what you are exactly talking about. I shop local also. The malls, I try to stay away from this time of year! Have a wonderful Christmas :)
