Creating a Vintage Style Christmas and a Linky Party!

Welcome to Creating Christmas!  


I am starting the party off today with my collection of vintage Christmas figurines!  
Vintage Christmas Angels & Figurines www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
This grouping is situated on top of my vintage washstand along with an old vanity mirror, a vintage Christmas tea towel, a mismatched snow village, and a couple of ceramic trees, one with a tea light at the rear.

Starting on the left is a Holt Howard Santa on a sleigh, with a Napco Mrs. Santa shaker, and a vintage unmarked deer figurine is in front.  This is a "married" grouping.  Mrs. Santa is missing the other shaker, the Holt Howard Santa is missing his original large white reindeer, and I'm not sure if the deer was originally part of a set or not.  I'm not all matchy-matchy, so this works for me!  These figurines are from the 1950's and 1960's.

These adorable little angels are all made by Lefton in the 1950's.  These two sets are my favorites. The little deer is also vintage.  Maker unknown, but likely made in Japan.

These two little Lefton angels have their vintage pug dog figurine out caroling this evening.  (Every home needs a pug!)

Moving over to my desk's hutch, I have two "made in Japan" Santa candle holders that I have displayed with bottle brush trees. The Waechtersbach holly bowl is filled with snowballs made last year, and posted to my blog.

The taller figurine with the packages was my Mom's, and I remember it from my childhood.  More mismatched snow village houses that I painted white in 2011, a little unmarked angel with a tree, and another pug dog.

These little charmers on the left side of the hutch are salt and pepper shakers.  The little angels in front are marked Japan, and the other set is made by Napco in 1956.

This little lady is the only Christmas head vase in my collection.


1959 Santa & Reindeer Columbia Toys www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
This Santa and his reindeer were mine as a child.  They are made by Columbia Toys, copyright 1959.  Plastic faced stuffed animals were popular when I was a child.

If you are a baby boomer, you might remember some of these vintage Christmas pieces!

  1. You have such a beautiful collection. I love H Holt and Lefton, though I don't have any yet. Always on the lookout though. I think my faves of yours are those 3 deer pictured with the Lefton sleigh. That reminds me of some sleigh planters I have that I haven't gotten out yet! Thanks for hosting this party, I'll have to check back to visit others later. Merry Christmas - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com
