This collection is really not a collection at all.. it's just some odds & ends that I have that don't quite meet the criteria for a collection. So I put them all together into one mishmash, because they are special and I wanted to share them.
|So wrong, somehow!|
Isn't that fabric adorable? Mid-century modern Santas on turquoise just seem perfect, and that Roy Rogers fabric! I have quite a lot of the Santa fabric, and a few years ago, I covered a bulletin board with it, to display my vintage Christmas cards. I'll show you a photo of it over the weekend.
There are a couple of little Christmas boxes: one is actually from the early 20th century, and held Christmas gift tags. The other is a fun 1950s match box. You can see them in the top photo.
Last is the fun Glass Wax Christmas stencil pack. These are actually from the 60s, but they were very popular in the 50s and 60s. Back then, Glass Wax was a product for cleaning glass. Someone, sometime discovered that the thick substance could be used to create patterns on windows and mirrors, and Glass Wax took full advantage, developing holiday stencil packs and patterns so that children could easily create works of art in their homes. I've included a great photo from the early '60s of my husband Bruce's home... note the fabulous aluminum Christmas tree and the Glass Wax stencils on the windows.
