A Christmas Chevy

Hello and happy VCM! ... I wasn't going to do a post today ... only because I didn't feel like I had anything worth sharing this time around ... bummed me out ... but look what I found on my way back from Starbucks this afternoon !! An old vintage Chevy pick-up truck painted a deep Christmas green and adorned with two holiday wreaths ... sitting in a parking lot just waiting to have it's picture taken ... lucky for me I had my camera in my purse and ta-da a fun little post for VCM!

I love vintage autos ... I wouldn't mind if Santa slipped this one under my tree {or driveway}, would you? Can you just imagine going junkin' in this guy? ... I think I would have to paint some big shabby roses in pink and white on the doors ... and how about slip covered seats done in a funky Cath Kidston fabric? ... ahhhhh daydreams ...

Stop by Joan's at Anything goes here to see what everyone else is talking about this Vintage Christmas Monday ...


  1. An always prepared blogger, camera in hand, LOVE it and the truck!!


  2. Oooh Jill, that is fabulous! Jack would love to own that one! (me too!)... I would give anything to own my first car I ever bought as a teenager... a '63 Chevy SuperSport... it would be worth a mint if I still owned it, but if I did, I would never sell it nowadays! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the old classic cars... this truck is a beauty! Bisous... Julie Marie

  3. I think I would have to fight my husband for this!!! Love it love it love it~

  6. WoW I would have loved to have seen that! I have to remember to start taking my camera with me more often ~ Thanks for showing me why :) Judi

  7. Daggone, I am always forgetting to take my camera with me. While driving back from Myrtle Beach today I spied a bright pink home on the waterway, and said, wow, photo op, but I didn't have my camera. boo hoo.
    Anyway, I love that old truck and yes, it would be great for junkin and a little shabby chicin it would be great!

  8. I love that old green truck! And it is so cute with its double wreath! xo Joan, your hostess

  9. Hey girl! Got my GREAT orders and my AWESOME giveaway prize from you today. Gonna post about it later when I can take pics - nerve test done today so kinda in pain.

    BUT, the reason I dropped by was to say CONGRATS! Saw where you won the giveaway over at LaurieAnne's Vintage Home. WOW great prize you got girl.


  10. Hi Jill, love the truck, Great color and love the wreaths! It's important for us junkers to follow the Boy Scout motto, "always be prepared!"
    I've had to start buying bigger purses so I can always have my camera with me. Hope you're having a great week!

  11. I surely need that to pull my little canned ham!

  12. Beautiful photos, have a nice day Radka.

  13. Jill what a great truck...I love your ideas :)And I think your posts are always great! Besos, Rose

  14. Great idea and photo-op!
    I wonder if it still runs? It sure does look well loved.
    Nice job, girl!

  15. My husband just sold that exact truck. Makes me so sad, I would park it on the driveway with a wreath on the grill and a tree in the back. Oh how I miss that baby!

  16. I would love to drive a truck like that!
    Your delightful gift arrived this week-end.! Thank you so much! Stop by when you get a chance!
