1950s- When your home is small, your tree also becomes small. It’s not the size that matters it’s how you decorate it with tinsel that does.

  1. I love the one of the two girls with their domestic goods presents because I had a toy ironing board and iron just like that! I can imagine it probably was vintage at the time because my mum has always loved old things, just like me.

    Hope you and yours have a truly wonderful Christmas and New Year! xx
