Vintage Christmas Monday

This is the last Vintage Christmas Monday that's being sponsored by

I'm not sure how old something has to be before it's considered "vintage" I want to share these snowflake ornaments that were given to me by a lady I used to work with.  She never decorated at Christ-mas time, so she asked me if I wanted these ornaments.  I've never actually hung them on my tree because they are so small...and I truly didn't want to loose them.  I knew they are Hallmark,  because they are still in the original box, but I didn't know what year.  Upon a bit of research....they were made by Hallmark in 1977 (same year Pappy and I got married....which I thought was neat, too!!!)
Anyway....out of curiosity I checked on e-bay to see if I could locate them....and guess what?  I found 2 sets....both were "buy it now"....and one was NINETY DOLLARS!  Now folks...that's a lot of $$$ to this old lady!!!

Okay...enough are the precious little snowflakes!!


Christ-mas Blessings to each of you,


  1. I love snowflakes to decorate with. These are very pretty. How nice to find out the year coincided with the year you were married. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Those are pretty. I love stuff like that.

  3. Snowflakes are one of my favorites too. What a good gift. Who knew they could be so expensive!

    Thank you for participating in Vintage Christmas Mondays!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!

  4. What lovely snowflakes! They look almost like jewelry. It's nice that they're still in their box, too - I love it when I find vintage items in the original packaging.

  5. Beautiful snowflakes no matter what the age! And I like the new red roof. It looks great with your brick home. Happy Holidays! ~ Sarah
