Vintage Christmas Monday

Welcome to another delightful celebration of "Vintage Christmas Monday" hosted by Joan. You can click on her button in my right sidebar to view other vintage Christmas items from other participants that are sharing their wonderful treasures.

My first photo is of some vintage candles that my mother knit many, many years ago. She is 95 years old now, and she used to knit and crochet so many wonderful things when her eyesight was better. My mother always put these candles out for Christmas and now I proudly display them especially since they were handmade with love and care by my mother.


My next photo shows ice skates that my mother made a long time ago. I think that they are so cute especially with the paper clips as blades.

Next week I'll show ornaments that are around 60 years old and still very pretty.
Thank you for visiting today and have a wonderful week.

How wonderful to still have your mother at 95. These are so pretty and colorful. The little ice skate stockings are adorable, I've never seen any like them.
Blessings,

Adorable decorations. It's so sweet that you still have your Mother :+)
I think it would have been hard not to play with the knitted ice skates as a child. I probably would have put them on my dolls' feet :+)
Your Mother is very creative.

To know the hands that created these candles & skates makes them even more special. I suspect they will be treasured by future generations, too! Thanks for showing them to us.
