We all know that things are different during a depression. Bottom line: things become simpler and lots more homemade. Yet...the Christmas spirit continues...
Have any decorating memories or information to share from the 1930's?
There were homemade paper chains and lanterns for sure. Remember all those shiny icicles that were so fun to clean up afterward?
Cute pine cone characters with old fashioned bristle brush trees and cotton "snow" bases bring back some memories!
Of course the cranberry and popcorn strings to wrap the tree and make everything look festive!
How about bringing the beautiful Depression Glass era into today's Christmas decorating? Just a thought!
