Growing up, decorating the tree with my parents was a special activity that I looked forward to every year. We would listen to Christmas music, place our ornaments on the tree and cover it with mounds of tinsel my favorite part. This beautiful tree with its gold and white decorations is the focal point of this holiday-ready living room.
Let's face it: We all have dinged-up ornaments that we don't have the heart to toss. The bowlful shown here includes examples of the dented, scratched, and just plain tacky ornaments we're talking about. See how they can be helped. Problem: Stripes in red and bright yellow-gold were unappealing, and the ornament looked dated, cheap, and plasticlike.

Antique and vintage Christmas ornaments are beautiful and fun to collect. The bad news is: reproductions of just about all these ornaments have flooded the marketplace. While many of these reproductions are quite beautiful themselves some made from the same materials or molds as the originals and great for "filling out" a display or vintage Christmas tree until you can acquire or afford the originals, you don't want to pay the same premium prices for them!
Vintage Christmas decorations are our specialty! We carry both reproduction and true vintage decorations. Feather trees were first made in Germany over years ago from real goosefeathers.

When you hang a Dresden Star Ornament on your tree this Christmas, you can do so knowing that you have a very unique Victorian Christmas ornament, unlike any other. Dresden Star Ornaments are lovingly hand-crafted from beautiful antique chromolithographs called scrapsold glass ornaments, and a variety of vintage Christmas decorations, making them truly look like antique Victorian Christmas ornaments. For years, Gail and Glenn had been collecting bits and pieces of old Christmas tree decorations, vintage glass ornaments, and century-old die-cut papers.
As for me, I knew I wanted to do something retro looking for my part of the tour, so I decided to try to recreate the old diorama ornaments. These vintage Shiny Brite dioramas were my inspiration. The originals were extremely breakable I may know this from first hand experienceso I decided to make mine with the more forgiving paper mache balls instead.
