One of the nice things about Dusty Old Thing at Christmas time is that we get to share our memories of holidays past. Antiques, vintage toys, treasured ornaments, books and the wonderful photos that capture “the way we were” are all keys to our cultural history. Here are just a few that have recently been shared with us by our readers. And, yes, we believe in Santa Claus.
from: Carol Jenkner: “I was inspired to photograph my doll houses when I saw the Christmas postings. I recently acquired the small tin litho house that has its original price penciled on the bottom-89 cents.”
from: Sandra Matthews Bloomer: “The Night before Christmas book given to my grandmother Mattie Sims 1896”
from Bev Schorsch: “Have yourself a vintage Little Christmas…..Just one of my Holiday decorations.. Enjoy…“
The photo of this beautiful and warm display is from Janet Sotlar. We’re pretty sure that Santa will stop here.
Thank to everyone who has shared their love of antiques and the stories that go with them. Stay warm and safe in the winter storms!
