A Very Merry "Pinkmas"

Hi Everyone~ Well, I am happy to say that as of today, I am about 99% done with all my Christmas shopping. Now if I can get the Christmas cards out tomorrow, I will be one happy gal. How's your shopping going??? 
This Christmas season I am loving decorating with PINK. I don't have too much, but what I have, I really, really like. This leads me to My Very Merry Pinkmas Post........
Did I mention that I LOVE vintage ornaments? Most of these came from The Rose Bowl Flea Market this past weekend. I think they look great just stacked up on this blue and white platter. 
The imperfections make them so charming. I wonder whose home (s) they were in before they came to me???
This is our white feather "sweets" tree. All the ornaments are sweets of some sort. Can you guess which tree in my house the kids like most?? I admit I can't resist it either.
Images of the tree.....

Theres always room for gingerbread men
 or girls :))
These vintage ornaments are part of my older collection. They are displayed with my pink snowhouses.
Can you see my reflection in the ornaments???? I tried stay out, but no such luck.

Aren't these houses sweet?? Notice the little poodle in the front yard of this house??
Are you all "Pinked Out" yet????
These beauties were listed on our Etsy Shop today and sold with in one hour. Of course, I was happy to have the sale, but I would have loved to have them for myself. Am I getting greedy??
I got this ornament many, many years ago(probably 25 years ago). It is still a favorite. 

This pink ornament is hanging on a tree that Dana (my Etsy Shop Partner) made as a display for our Christmas ornaments that we brought to boutiques that we did this Christmas season. More to follow on these  and how they were made and what from.
And just because I needed more I bought these today at a cute new shop in town called Cathleen Parker, Vintage 

I just want to welcome and thank all my new viewers!!! I love getting all your comments and seeing new names.It truly makes my day:)
