**Time to Think ViNtaGe Christmas** ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Style!*!*!

Near the end of the Christmas Season "last-year" ~ I made a decision to sell my ViNtaGe Christmas Blue Bottle Brush Collection...   I even took pictures of each and every one of the items, found a box for shipping, and planned to list the items for SaLe around this time of year on Ebay...  Well let me tell you ...  NO WAY!*!*!  I just un-boxed these "rare-beauties" ~ THEY ARE JUST STUNNING!!!   Definitely KEEPERS!!!  Parting with my Vintage Pink Collection was insane enough!!!  It takes years to acquire these "more-rare" finds...  I've linked-up with Debra of Common Ground for her ViNtaGe InSpiRaTioN Friday...  Maybe I can inspire YOU to start up a collection of something that's ViNtaGe Christmas??? - Love to SEE IT!!!  Enjoy the "EyE~CaNdY"!*!*! Sorry NOT For SaLe...  (click on pics to enlarge details...)

This one is My FaVoRiTe!*!*!  Thick Bottle Brush Branches ~ The Old Snow is Still Nice and White...  Funky 1950's 


Such Character...

"Glistening"...  The branches fold-up for easy storage...  Tips have mercury glass beads...

Made-In-Japan...  I try and buy my trees with their Original Vintage Labels...  

Mixes well with a bit of "SHaBBy-BlinG"...

This tree is more on the Aqua-Blue Color - but mixes in well with other shades of vintage blue trees...

I usually don't like to add-on an embellishment - but this one just called for the vintage rhinestone pin!!!

The wood base is a bit "ShaBBy!"

I stopped dead in my tracks when I found these amazing "vintage ornaments with blue glitter on them"...  Such a PeRfeCt Go-With!*!*!

I almost let this one get away...  Thank goodness the Lady "changed her mind"!!!  I've had 3 blue wreaths over the years - soooo hard to come by-   This one is definitely a keeper now...  The snow is still nice and bright - Not Dingy...

Wonderfully ViNtaGe
