Vintage Christmas Fun


Christmas in Cincinnati is magical. The whole city and it suburbs shine. Christmas displays abound....from personal homes to businesses. One place that really takes Christmas seriously is the Taft Museum. Once the personal home of the Taft Family...27th President....it is now a museum filled with antiquities and vintage charm.
Outside view isn't quite christmasy, but wait til you walk thru those doors.................................................
It's a Vintage Christmas! With various decorated trees,

Dioramas


Toys

More trees


Vintage lighting


Santa, of course


And, my fav, the Victorian Tree








 Hope you're having a great holiday season so far. Tomorrow I'll take you to Krohn Conservatory for a warm and balmy Christmas.

Hi Melody, Christmas is just around the corner. I have most of what I am doing done except for the wrapping part. Your trees are so pretty and there are things in the pictures that bring back memories. Have a Merry Christmas. Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

Hi Melody, Everything is so pretty in that house. However, I'm just shivering knowing how they actually used to have all those large "cardboard" decorations on the trees, in addition to lighted candles. It's not bad enough that real trees are extremely flammable, but they also add cardboard decor!!! It's a wonder so many more didn't burn down their homes back then.

Hugs,
Meri
