The Christmas Waltz

It's that time of year when the world falls in love, every song you hear seems to say Merry Christmas, may your New Years dreams come true.
                                    from The Christmas Waltz

Christmas is almost here again! Today we had a nice frosting of snow and the temperatures dropped about 30 degrees over night! It feels like winter and now it looks that way too! Add a bit of Christmas music and I'm getting in the mood! If you're viewing on a desktop pc, you may be listening to my Soundcloud Christmas playlist. The first song on the list is The Christmas Waltz, not too many current performers have recorded it but it is one of my all time favorites! Love the vintage image above of the animals waltzing around the tree!

Hope you all have your Christmas lists filled out and presents purchased. Better not be on that naughty list!

This old vintage Rudolph book will be added to my scrap pile of vintage "things to do". Some projects didn't get completed this year. Maybe I'll have them done by next Christmas! 

My post wouldn't be complete without a cat in it, so here you go. A lovely vintage postcard of an adorable little girl and her kitty!  

Merry Christmas to all my friends and customers. 
May the joy of the 
season be yours forever! 


  1. Why am I never on the good list? I try my best, but somehow I always fall short! According to friends on FB, I turn up on all the naughty lists – I don’t understand it! 
    Happy Christmas Diane, I hope the season and the New Year bring everything your heart desires.

    PS your Soundcloud Christmas playlist is lovely.

  2. Beautiful images, thanks for sharing. I hope you're well! xx

  3. Lovely vintage images! Santa's list makes me notice how not many boys are called "Huck" these days (none). Probably because of what other kids could rhyme it with, lol.

    Have a wonderful and merry Christmas, Diane, and all the best for 2018!

  4. Ah pictures that take me back to when I was a small child caught up in the magic wonderment of Christmas. An ideal that forever lives in my heart.

    A peaceful, hopeful, loving Christmas to you and your loved ones.
