Christmas Vintage Thingie Thursday


This is my vintage decorations.

This is the last vintage visit with Coloradolady at before Christmas.

Christmas is a day any age can enjoy. Mostly we think of it as Santa coming down the chimney to visit all the boys and girls. Whether you're making memories by reading to a young child or introducing an older one to characters that delight long after the last page, a favorite book is a lasting gift.

This would be a great one for the holidays. It has a right to be a tattered, as it was given to this lady in 1948. This book was a real classic back then.

Another great book You might consider "Rin Tin Tin" dated 1954.

The two following little books have been around for years as well. This one was issued in June 1963. Regardless of the age, the story is still the same.

This is another version of the same titled book. I made an extra shot to show the date and price back then.

Another great idea for children is music. This first album is dated 1957.

"Bambie" is dated 1969.

"Snow White" is dated 1969.

"Mickey Mouse Club" was issued in 1975.

I doubt the young generation of today ever heard of vinyl records.

I agree that books make splendid gifts LV and I bought my son two. They are about guitars and making music in a band. He plays bass guitar so I hope he likes them. Thanks for sharing the beautifully illustrated books with us.

Hi LV!
Isn't that fun we both picked to share from Jack and Jill magazines today! I love all your vintage books, the illustrations are so charming and the albums are so much fun. I loved Mickey Mouse Club on TV when I was little. I can remember going to Disneyland while it was on and there was an exhibit and I got a membership card to the Mickey Mouse Club. :)

Wishing you a lovely Christmas with your family,

I loved watching the Mickey Mouse Club Show and I also read Jack and Jill. I think vinyl records are making a small comeback.

I just commented on another blog that I haven't thought of bottle brush trees in a long time.

I think I had that very same Rudolph book back in the day. I definitely had the Rin Tin Tin one and the Bambi one. I think I may still even have a Jack & Jill magazine around somewhere.

Oh - the Mickey Mouse Club! Although I never had a talent worthy of being on tv, I always dreamed of being on "Talent Roundup Day" and receiving one a Mickey Mouse cowboy hat.

Thanks for the memories.

Merry Christmas!

What a wonderful post, you have some great books there. I love to give books as gifts; couldn't wait until my nieces were old enough for Anne of Green Gables. That's a great tree, too!

Hahaha! Guess what my twenty-one year old grad student wanted for Christmas? A record player! We ordered one from Amazon, then had lots of fun buying LPs at record stores and thrift stores :)
