Most of the Junk Bonanza team is of a “certain vintage” — old enough to remember these cool, cutout Santas with sleigh and reindeer!
It was a fun discovery to figuratively stumble across an entire set on the lawn of a home in Minneapolis, recently!
(And is it vintage, or is it modern, made to look old?)
Whichever it is, it evoked wonderful memories of my younger (crisp and snowy) days as a child in western North Dakota. A posh family on the other side of town had a set very similar to this! I used to marvel at its majesty, and at the roof on the home that was large enough to hold it, because that’s where it was positioned!
It was a spectacular statement, especially to my young eyes. (At our home, we strung colored lights on two gangly evergreens out front. Such a display would have been considered too flashy for my folks.)
This tableau in an urban front yard provided a lovely traipse through my youthful memories, as the only holiday decor I was able to salvage from my family home were a few worn ornaments. What decor from your childhood says “holiday” to you?!
