I like to get a jump start on Christmas decorating. I do several trees so the sooner I get started the better. I like to have everything done by Thanksgiving. I start in my front room and work my way through the house. So this week I got out my decorations for the front room and I am almost finished with that room. Well that is to say if I actually ever really finish decorating a room. So with that thought in mind I must look for some new vintage items. I love to add at least a few special things to my collection each year. The other day I found these adorable little angels which I intend to use for my decorations and I found these really cute little angel paper mache ornaments. I will add the paper mache ones to my little village. Here are a few pictures. I will add more pictures when I have placed my new (new to me) babies where I want them.

First are my little Angel Babies

This is my village. I made all the houses from plain little houses I bought a few years ago. Of course I had to paint, glitter and decorate them each. My vintage PINK Christmas tree and my vintage snowman round out my village. I got the vintage snowmen last year and I so love them.

This is my little church

Happy Decorating!!!


  1. I love your taste in decorating! You did a beautiful job with your village houses. I also do a vintage Christmas. I start with a 1950's style Christmas tree ( the big lights and glass ornaments). I have my mom's manger set from the 1950s. Then I go on from there. So many beautiful memories from my childhood! I have a pink glitter Church from Victorian Trading Company. You would love this catalog, Beverly. Warm Wishes, Darlene

    1. Darlene, thank you ever so kindly for the very nice comment and for visiting me. I adore vintage holiday items of all types. Oh how I miss the big lights at Christmas time. You can nto really find that type anymore. I do love the paper glitter houses. I will have to check out the catalog. Thank you so much, Beverly


Thank you ever so kindly for visiting Tea Cottage Pretties.
We hope that you enjoyed your visit and come back soon.
Have a beautiful day
