With just a few days left until Christmas, I’m sure most of you already have your home decorated with lots of festive fun decor. When I imagine decorations for this time of year, I always think of my Grandmother’s house when I was growing up. I spent every Christmas Eve and Christmas morning there for years and years, and she had the same decorations every year.

My Grandmother’s decor was likely all purchased around 1955, because it was just like all of this lovely atomic Christmas gear I’ve featured today! She had it all- the colorful glass ornaments, elf figurines with little doll faces, and that ceramic tree!

She had a red tree topper exactly like this one.

I definitely remember lots of reindeer decor. It seems the reindeer have been put on the back-burner in more recent years, but in the atomic age they were everywhere!

I just love vintage Christmas decor! It’s so cheerful and sweet, and it reminds me of my childhood. Most of my Grandmother’s beautiful collection has disappeared or broken, but I plan on creating my own collection with the help of Etsy and vintage shops.

In honor of “Winter Storm Cleon” freezing out a large portion of the U.S. this week,  I thought it would be fitting to spotlight something that keeps us warm and cozy… adorable vintage coffee pots and tea kettles! What’s better than cuddling up with a hot cup of coffee or tea on a cold day? Not much, in my opinion!

All of these vintage pots are so adorable! I obviously love the style of kitchens from the 60s and 70s. They paid so much attention to detail. Check out that groovy bird one! These beautiful pieces are so bright and fun, perfect for cheering you up on a chilly day.

I have a weakness for anything with that “atomic age” style from the late 50′s and early 60s. The starburst patterns, the gold leafing, I just can’t get enough! All of these pots are perfect for get togethers or just enjoying a cup on your own. It’s never too late to ditch that boring individual-pod coffee machine! Or just neglect it until that morning you’re super late for work- hey, modern conveniences have their merit, too.

How cute is that lemon one? If that doesn’t cure your winter blues, I don’t know what will!
