I was finally able to get some decorations up this weekend. It seems everyone is posting pictures of their holiday house, I am going to join the club!
I decided to drape my summer flea market find mirror in greenery and mini-baubles.
I found clock faces popping up everywhere…
and I hung mini-boxwood wreaths on the vintage doors and the faux old mirrors made from picture frames in our sitting area. I think Boxwood is the new Pine…
Our tree holds my great aunt’s Shiny-brites, copies of vintage pictures and postcards, and clock faces. I used vintage lace for the garland this year. I think I am going to be on the hunt for more Shiny brites next year.
I think I admired this on the Country Living website somewhere, so I of course, I stole their idea . I love the real Scotch Pine garland, it was my big splurge this season at $17. I added the vintage crystal and twine garland. I am all about the bling at Christmas. I bought some glittered birds at Micheal’s on sale for 59 cents each. I need to find a home for them.
I added my free pine cuttings to the top of my hutch from Home Depot. Did you know they had a box marked FREE near the exit? Is it bad when you make your preschooler carry some because your arms are full?
I even broke out a bit of Sweden with more free pine branches, an old candle and a small metal bucket I had picked up at Target last spring in the dollar bin. I saw a similar idea in Jean D’Arc magazine. I have been inspired lately by the clean, simple look; I think Tracey is starting to convert me. If you are looking for some unique gifts she has some wonderful things exclusive to her shop. I’ve even created a special stocking you can only buy there.
I was having a hard time getting into the holiday groove; but now I am ready to head to Whole Foods for my eggnog and start packing the Christmas calories on.
Remind me to check my Cholesterol after January.
