Our family enjoyed a Christmas party at my niece, Missy’s. We gathered in her urban cottage which she has decorated with everything vintage. Missy likes to shop any place where the inventory is second hand. She has a keen eye for spotting treasures that others overlook. Not only were the decorations all vintage, but the dishes, gifts, wrapping paper, and trimmings were too. Even the record albums playing on the stereo were from days gone by. And there’s more. Missy had second-hand favorites outside in the lovely snowy yard.
