Vintage Christmas Collections That Inspire!

The holiday hustle is officially on! But I'm so glad you stopped by today... You are in for a treat! If you have yet to learn of Jesse and his absolutely inspiring Instagram feed, I hope you'll consider this an introduction. 

I asked Jesse if I could share some of his pictures and collections with you. So happy he said yes! Enjoy these squares filled with vintage charm. Each one makes me nostalgic for Christmas past, and also excited for Christmas to come...

I think the vintage packaging and typography is just as special as what's inside, don't you?

Something tells me there's going to be a big run on deer... Aren't they sweet?

I will admit, I actually never knew what these beauties were, and have probably passed up my fair share. Thanks to Jesse, I now know these are glass tree toppers. And I am on the hunt!

Strands of beads in all colors. Ahhh. Makes me want to deck all the halls. And trees. And anything else in my path...

Santa boots I never knew I needed till now. You too?

Ironstone and trees. A perfect pairing.

And one thing we do collect - Santa mugs! 
(I feel so in the know. Does this make up for me not knowing about the tree toppers?) 

And in case you're wondering, Jesse's talent does not end at Christmas. You should see the rest of the year - - it does not disappoint! He just keeps the creativity coming. 

You can find more of Jesse's work here.

Enjoy the day!



  1. This was the BEST pictoral! Makes me long for Christmas past a little bit. I have some of these things...tree topper included. I've made some others as well. You have to keep history alive. The only thing you have missing are bubble lights and those tin foil backs that went behind those big tree lights. Blessings to you and yours this holiday season and always.

    1. So glad you enjoyed these pictures, and so cool that you have several of these pieces! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. I have a few of those very same Santa cups.... love them !! and those glass tree toppers??? Who knew ??? I sure do wish I still had the ones my Mom had for our trees over the years.... We normally had an angel tree topper but then we went to the glass type of topper that is in your pic!! So pretty !!!!!!

    1. And I love how Jesse displays his collections... I wouldn't have necessarily thought of getting a glass topper if I didn't need it as a tree topper. But seeing how he displays the beautiful collection of them separate from a tree, opens up all new kinds of possibilities! :) Santa mugs are fun to collect aren't they? I added a few to our collection this year. Thank you for stopping by and taking time to share. Hope you have a merry Christmas!!

  3. I just learned that the glass tree toppers are called fineal d'arbres.....who knew??

  4. What are the tree toppers being displayed on?
