They say Christmas is for kids, but I still love Christmas.
With each passing year I’m drawn more and more to the nostalgia of Christmas past.
Memories of childhood Christmases haunt me and I find myself wanting to recreate that magical experience.
So it’s no surprise that this year I’m dreaming of a vintage Christmas.
This year I have a new flocked tree from Balsam Hill and I love it!
You’ll get to see the fully decorated view during my Holiday Home tour the first week in December.
Aren’t the flocked branches beautiful? Balsam Hill trees are so realistic looking!
Our living room had a very high vaulted ceiling and that tree stretched to the top.
I also spied this beautiful ornament set from Balsam Hill.
They remind me a bit of the pastel glass ornaments that hung on my childhood tree.
This gorgeous white tree from Balsam Hill is very similar to the one I remember when growing up. Except our tree was live and taken to a big garage where they flocked it. I remember riding with my father in the station wagon one year to go pick it up.
This year I considered getting an all white tree …
But in the end chose the Frosted Fraser Fir from Balsam Hill*.
I think it will fit beautifully with my vintage Christmas theme this year.

Finally, just for fun … here’s my favorite Christmas cartoon from my childhood …
I think Suzy Snowflake was played primarily on Chicago stations.
Hope you enjoy this little blast from the past! Let me know if you’ve seen it before!
* Balsam Hill provided a gift card to cover a portion of the cost of my new tree. All opinions are mine.
