my vintage collection: handmade Vintage Christmas ornaments



I hope you guys are not too tired of my Christmas decor posts yet (in November!) It's just that it's my most favorite time of the year and you know what, where I was born (Philippines), people actually start decorating as early as September 1st, which is why they're known to have the longest running holiday season around the world.  As soon as September comes, streets are decorated with colorful lights, trees and lanterns, as well as Christmas carols played all day long most especially in the big city (Manila).  As a kid growing up I remember getting that warm and fuzzy feeling as soon as the first day of September comes which means I can put the tree up and decorate it with my brother.  Writing this post just now, I can almost hear the sounds of the carolers and smell my mom's bibingka cooking.

Anyhoo, I will be listing this pretty handmade ornaments to the shop this week and also today is the last day of my Modish Vintage's Sale!

    Alex, some of these are made with hundreds of pins, beads and sequins, I can't imagine how long one ornament would take to make!
