So, it's December 4th, it's 80 degrees outside, the a/c is running, and my boys wore shorts to school today. Oh Texas...you drive me crazy with your wonky weather. Anyway, I wanted to share some unique ornaments and cookie cutters with y'all today. My mom bought these ornaments at Montgomery Ward in the early 70's. Remember Montgomery Ward stores? We had these on our tree almost every Christmas growing up. I love all the pink!
Who wouldn't love ice cream cones and popcorn balls on their tree? :) The garland was made of fake popcorn too.
The gingerbread ornaments also came from Montgomery Ward in the early 70's.
And...this is what the back of EVERY SINGLE ONE looks like. Yeah...umm...I did that when I was little. :) I couldn't stand it...I HAD to poke holes in those little covers in the back. LOL!
These cookie cutters belonged to my great grandmother, so they're really old. :) Just to give you some perspective, my grandmother was born in 1912, and these belonged to HER mother. Vintage, indeed. :) I love using these.
I'm totally in love with the wooden handles too.
And this has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas or vintage stuff, but I had to show y'all my longhorn cookie cutter. :) I bought it at a little store in Fredericksburg, Tx. Cute, huh? :)
I hope y'all enjoyed going back in time with me. Does anyone else remember Montgomery Ward? Did your childhood Christmas trees have a particular theme?
