  1. All your decor is stunning! Love the bells around the door! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Shiny & Brite New Year as well! 😊💕🎄

    • Hi! I just found the picture of your bedding in your master bedroom and it’s EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for but can’t find! Then to my luck, saw the picture was posted 10 years ago 😔. Do you happen to know where you bought it from or a website or anything that has a similar comforter??

      • Hi Lyndsey. Yeah, this was quite a while ago. The khaki comforter is Ralph Lauren. But I think you are asking about the bed blanket. The red/black one? Right? That is a long-discontinued Pendleton blanket we nabbed in Albuquerque years ago. Check their website, there are tons on other blankets.

  2. Thanks for taking the time to post these lovely pictures and provide some historical context and information. THAT makes all the difference.

    • Thanks David! It’s the history of these things that I find the most fascinating… and I’m so glad to pass it on to anyone willing to listen.

  3. Great to hear you are doing well…and really running out of things to post about…wouldn’t be the same holidays without a look-see into your beautiful decorations! (You’ve inspired me to collect some “new” old things!)
    Happy Holidays and not only a shiny-brite New Year…but a safe and healthy one, too!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous and inspirational! The bells around the door are charming. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home once again! I hope your holidays are shiny and brite! May 2022 be a healthy and happy year to all!

  5. These trees with the antique ornaments are breathtaking! Where do you find these old ornaments? Garage sales? Flea markets?

    • Hi John. Thank you. I find old Christmas anywhere I can. Flea markets, antique stores, estate sales, garage sales, thrift stores, Etsy, EBay (mostly), even friends who know I appreciate old stuff.

  6. First I would like to say your house is beautiful. I love it! I’m a big fan of Shiny Brite ornaments, I have been collecting them since 2013 including bubble lights. I remember my grandparents had similar vintage ornaments from 1950s in our house in Cuba. Your Christmas trees are amazing!! Love the colors and all the vintage decorations, makes me go back in time……good memories ♥️

  7. I’ve collected vintage Christmas decorations for several years but just discovered your site today. Wanted to thank you for the information you’ve provided regarding history, manufacturers, & years that different items were produced. I also wanted to say that when I got to the pics of the tree decked out in Premier wartime ornaments, I practically licked the screen – mouth watering & delicious were the first two words that popped up in my brain. (Apparently I have an oral fixation & didn’t realize it until now) Thanks so very much for the info, the ideas & the inspiration!
