We've had rather better luck in our never-ending hunt for vintage ornaments, Dear Reader.
White Whale Limited, our favorite antiques shoppe in Hudson, New York, is a treasure trove of vintage ornaments this December. The dealers there stocked up on them throughout the year, and their store is laden with them. Over the last two weekends Boy and I visited the shop several times in our quest for ornaments, as the dealers brought them out in stages to replenish their stock as needed.
The photograph in today's post shows but a fraction of the vintage ornaments we bought at White Whale this Yuletide season. Boy has arranged them prettily in a gilt Paris Porcelain reticulated basket on stand, circa 1820. It now sits on a cocktail table in our drawing room.
In addition to the colorful ornaments shown here, we also found lots of silver ones at White Whale that Boy has already hung on our Christmas tree. Our tree is the subject of my next post, Dear Reader.
Now, I'm off to do my final Christmas shopping!
