    I love getting together with family on Christmas Eve to share stories of past Christmas memories and open presents from each other – then get together again on Christmas morning for breakfast and a visit from Santa. I love that he still visits after all these years… :)

  2. Heather says

    I love this wreath. It embodies what I feel about the holidays- remembering old fashioned/retro ornaments and decorations that family and family friends used to decorate with from when I was a child.

    I get a warm, cozy feeling when I think of the holidays and spending time with my family watching “A White Christmas” and driving through the neighborhood to see the lights.

  3. Kathy says

    I love to decorate and “more is more” is my motto…especially vintage decorations…now that I have 3 grandchildren it is more fun than ever…I have at least two trees and hoards of ornaments vintage and new…Vermont Country catalogue has reproduction ornaments we remember from the 50s and 60s…if any body wants to check them out. Love these wreaths, they are beautiful and witty. I would be very proud to win one. thanks for posting them.

  4. Lisa says

    Christmas is memories. Christmas Eve at my grandma’s house was the very best night of every year growing up. Making new memories with my nieces when they were little, like the year my sister and I stayed up until 3 in the morning playing with their new Barbies. I now have a grand niece who will be celebrating her first Christmas. More memories in the making. Her great aunt bought her a red and green tutu for the occasion! We should all wear tutus on Christmas!

  5. Lynn says


    Fingers crossed! I love preparing for the holidays, decorating, cooking and baking…practicing carols with the neighbors, we sing carol one evening for the neighborhood.

  6. Michelle Hansen says

    One of my favorite parts of the holidays is unpacking my vintage ornaments and hanging them. Each one is special.

  7. Tanya says

    What’s not to love about the holidays? I guess, though, I would say that I’m really looking forward this holiday season to getting out last year’s gift…an authentic 1960s aluminum tree with color wheel!

  8. Natalie W says

    My favorite part of the holidays is seeing the joy in my daughters face when the house is all done up with twinkle lights and shiny brights.

  9. Shandra says

    Thanks again for the inspiration! I’m going to branch out with my Shiny Brites & try center pieces this year!

  10. Julie says

    My favorite part of the season is the preparation, the decorating, the gift buying, the crafts, the baking, the wrapping, the tree trimming…it’s all about preparing to make this the best Christmas ever for my family and loved ones.

  11. Jenny S says

    I love decorating with my many, many goodies obtained during countless antiquing & shopping trips with Grandma and Mom. Grandma passed this year and her special decor I have inherited will bring back very fond memories of the holidays at my Grandparents’ home. And I absolutely roll all my fave holiday movies while decorating…Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Serendipity, & Better Off Dead (big John Cusack fan). Oh and any Seinfeld episode with anything remotely holiday-ish in it…yup Seinfeld freak.

  12. says

    1st time comment – It is never too early to post Christmas pictures! Vintage Christmas ornaments and decorations always remind me of when I was young with my sister and how much my mom loved Christmas. I love seeing things she had and I treasure the vintage things that were passed to me.

  13. Minda Logan says

    My favorite part of Christmas is decorating, baking with my Grandchildren, and spending time with my family. I also tried making one of these last year…what a mess! This wreath would be a great addition to my 1956 ranch.

  14. Susan bendas says

    During the holidays I love spending time with family and friends. Surrounding ourselves with festive music, baking cookies and holiday parties keep us smiling and thankful. Tis’ the season of love and light.

  15. Jess Scott says

    Oh, this wreath would look fantastic at the Richland Rd Ranchette, along side the big twinkle light-infused Christmas tree my fabulous Gram made out of vintage jewelry! You know, the ones mounted on velvet in a frame? I’ll have to get a good photo of it this year… Every year about this time I am looking forward to all the food and wine and holiday parties! I also secretly love the cold weather…

  16. JuanaK says

    Why, setting up my silver Christmas tree, of course! Some years the ornaments are all red, some years pink, some years turquoise. I pool a string of colored lights below, since I don’t have a color wheel, alas …

  17. Rebecca Briscoe says

    Love the tastes of the Christmas season!! My favourite part is the delicious cakes, cookies, ice cream, pies and candies! When I think of Christmas, I remember the food, and the sense of giving at the dinner table;)

  18. javier says

    our tradition was to set the christmas tree up while listening to Johnny Mathis’ Christmas album on vinyl. to this day I can’t get into the mood unless I play that album. this year will be really tough since my dad passed away… we will have to put an extra star on the tree

  19. Alisa says

    My favorite part of Christmas is getting out decorations from childhood and seeing the wonder in the eyes of my child while sharing and giving and spreading good cheer :)

  20. Sherri says

    I love Christmas,the decorating and all!!! The wreath matches my house and my felt elf knee hugger collection,i put them all over my tree too :) my house has a knotty pine basement with a holiday room,(i love Halloween too!)

  21. says

    I LOVE the cheer all around! The hustle and bustle in stores, the music playing everywere, watching spouses trying to find the perfect gift w/o a clue :), the red christmas cups…I love it ALL! :)

    And this wreath is AMAZING!!!

  22. Jennifer says

    Guess I should start thinking about Christmas! Our 1958 house needs to be decorated so I guess I should start looking around. This wreath would be a great start!

  23. Lissie says

    My favorite thing about the holidays is decorating the Christmas tree. I love pulling out all the old ornaments, some going way back to my parents’ first Christmas together in the late 60s. Each ornament has a story or a memory attached. After the tree is up, I like to lie on the floor (near the roaring fire of course) and admire it.

  24. says

    having the vanity plate FA LA LA should give you are pretty good idea how much I love the holidays! I go straight from jack-o-lanterns to Elf’s on the shelf. There is no time for Tom Turkey in my house! Let’s get decorating now!!!

  25. Nancy Huenergardt says

    My favorite thing to do is put up my aluminum Christmas trees while listening to Christmas music. Love those wreaths!

  26. Donna Huddleston says

    We have missed a lot of traditional Christmases the last 10 yrs due to cancer, last year included. I bought a new tree last year, and well, just never got around to putting it away. I keep making new ornaments and putting them on the tree. I hope this year is a bit saner. If not, the tree will stay up until my family is healed.

  27. Karen says

    Oh little elf, little elf … Christmas really begins when we hear David Sedaris read “SantaLand Diaries” on NPR and hear the dulcet tones of “Billy Holiday” singing Away in a Manger.

  28. says

    My two sons are 2 1/2 and 4 months. I love introducing the holiday season to them. Especially my 2 1/2 year old. We have a nativity play set and a Christmas village that allows us to be creative and get excited about Christmas. I also LOVE reading The Sweet Smell of Christmas. There is nothing cuter than seeing my son smell the stickers and say “mom smell Christmas!”
