Antique Christmas Museum
A friend and I went to the Taft Museum in Cincinnati recently, as they feature an Antique Christmas display this time of year.One of my favorites was this feather tree, featuring flowers and butterflies.It also had vintage floral Christmas postcards arranged around the base.The butterfly wings were made of painted spun glass!This is exactly how my table looks on Christmas Day -- LOL - not! But if it did, I think this is how I would be dressed...... I wish you could see the lace detail on this painting.... it was so beautiful! I was only photographing the Christmas trees, when one of the workers told me I wasn't supposed to be doing that -- even though I asked for permission on the way in -- whoops! So I had to "sneak" in these last two trees, therefore, the color isn't as good on them. I'll share more of the other trees next time I post! :)

P.S. I bought the little glitter house from the previous post, in the museum gift shoppe, as a momento of our visit.

Did I ever mention I LOVE Christmas???!!!!!!



What a fun and interesting visit. My table looks like that too! ha!

I love Christmas too. It was wonderful to see the feather trees! Oops, well.... A lot of museums have that no photography rule, so I will purchase a few postcards in their gift shop to take away with me.
