Old Fashioned Christmas - vintage decorations are the best!
Here is a little 5 x7 that I did in acrylic on Ampersand gessobord. I love to decorate for Christmas and these are two pieces near and dear to my heart. The Santa Post office is a bank that I had when I was a kid. I recently found it in the attic at my Mom's house. Now it is part of my way to big collection of decorations. The tree was given to me and my husband by his Aunt Helen shortly after we were married. She fired ceramics in her basement and loved making pieces for the family. These lighted trees were popular in the 70's and I am lucky to have this one plus a white one with all blue lights that Helen also made for us.
I took this photo as I was taking down my decorations last Christmas and wanted to paint it before I lost the image which happens too often, but that is another story. I think this will be my Christmas card this year :)
