    Hi Pam,
    Love the vintage decorations. Hope you can see the Fada radio I uploaded. It was my mothers.
    Happy Holidays

    Hi Pam. I downloaded several pictures on Sunday night. I haven’t seen them posted yet. I didn’t put my name on them, but there were an elf on a corncob, guitar Santa on boot, mermaids with ribbons, etc. Is there something else I should do? Thank–Pam, Atlanta

    MsErinD- I love the living room. Tell me -does the tv work? Did you have to rewire it? That is one of my goals this year.

    1. MrsErinD says:

      Hi Nina, Thanks! No the tv doesn’t work yet, but I know Hubby will get it to work! It needs rewired yes, but also tubes, etc, all those little things that went into old tv’s, thankfully Hubby knows all that so we’ll get it to work one day, we also have a floor model stand radio from 1942 and a console stereo from 1947, so he started work on the stereo first.

      1. Nina462 says:

        Thanks MrsErinD for the info on your tv. Awhile back Pam had some links on how to connect them & make them work for today. Have a very Merry Christmas – –

          I love vintage electronics, even work on a few, but these can be even more of a threat than lead in my opinion! Do not plug them in to see if they work. You need a special tool called a Variac (a fancy dimmer) to make sure that the power surge from the initial plug in doesn’t fry the old wiring, resistors, etc.

    I love all the great vintage decorations and decorating ideas. I have been collecting vintage decorations for nearly 20 years. It is great to unpack my “old friends” every year, but can be difficult to find new ways to display them. You all have such wonderful and unique ideas – I shall steal them all! Merry Christmas!!
