Christmas Ornaments This Vintage Thingies Thursday!

These vintage 1950s Christmas ornaments were made in Japan. Each hung on my tree as a child and still do every Christmas since my Mom gave them to me. I have more, but these represent some of my favorites.

My carolling snowman is showing his age. But, he's always singing!



This glittering house is one of many I use to play with on the Christmas tree entertaining myself by rearranging an imaginary village.





These silver birds are the only two left now. The one on the left has a body made from a pine cone. The right bird has sticker on it's bottom saying Made in Japan 1956.




Are any of these vintage ornaments familiar to you VTT visitors?

Now hurry over to Coloradolady to see if there is more festive vintage to see today.

Happy Vintage Thingies Thursday!

I never saw ornaments like that. I especially like the pinecone ones.

None of these are familiar to me, which makes them all the more special for you! I'd love to get my hands on that snowman for my collection.

Lovely frosty ornaments. I love the old ornaments that hung on mum and dad's tree. Each had its own individuality.

I can't believe it. My husbands mother gave us his ornament....so it is a family heirloom....and I've never seen any like it till I saw your post. He has the bird that isn't a pinecone. So now I know when they were made. Each boy got a bird.....So I told the kids they are going to have to fight over the bird as their heritage. Thanks for showing the ornaments. I live in Missouri.
