That's awesome, Trav. I think I'd try to touch up the silver, carefully. I've only got my tree up, so far. I'll try to get the rest up, tonight & take some pics.

Not decor so much but some swell vintage paper stuff I finally got scanned...



Disposable Santa coaster. Such a great graphic. Found a pack of them at a junk shop a few years back and used them for Christmas cards.






Santa the sportsman paper. (I've had this over half a decade and still haven't figured out a good use for it.)






Ski dog card, made in England. Marked: Designed by Anthony Browne Gordon Fraser, Bedford







Three kings card, made in England. The card bends where the beard trails off. Marked: GALLERY FIVE Wise Men by Jan Pienkowski

Awesome display BK. That color wheel is the best. I'd like to see more of that room also.

Well this is as retro as we got this year. Everyone I know hates our white tree and that's why we love it and a Christmas card pic from our photo shoot that didn't make the cut but was my favorite of the lot. Mrs. uncle trav picked another photo for the card. Merry Christmas.

Here is my girlfriend's childhood tree that we put up in the new house for our first Christmas.

It's a Holi-Gay tree that her mother bought in 1960. Her mom told me it caused the first fight in her marriage. He was very upset she spent $25 on a tree when she only made around 220 to 250 a month.

I am glad she bought it and we can enjoy it. I hope to find a color wheel to pair up with it next time we put it up. All but three of the ornaments are from the tree I grew up with by way of the tree that my mother grew up with, so it's great to mesh the families like this.

The train is my sisters that my dad bought for her when she was a kid. It's an LGB Circus train and even plays a few tunes. My friends 4-year old daughter absolutely loved it.

Here is my vintage pom tree. About half are vintage ornaments. Yes all of the packages are color coordinated.

I'm loving all the vintage displays.

That is a killer tree. Where were you at Christmas time? Is it still set up? Mine is?
