This holiday season has been rushed for me. Two days after Thanksgiving, we went on a cruise for a significant birthday of mine. I would like to say it was my 35th or even my 40th but it was a little north of both of those! I'm not complaining but it did put a crimp into my normal holiday decorating - you know, go big or go home. Not to worry... we did get a real tree and it got trimmed.
Other than the tree, though, most of the decorating incorporated bits and baubles with our everyday style. I thought it turned out festive (enough) but next year, the aluminum tree with the vintage glass ornaments will definitely be making a come back. Here's a peak of most of my holiday decor.
|Our fireplace "mantle" with vintage velvet deer, candle ring, glass vases, |
McCoy Scandia planter, brass deer, wooden owl, and a real antler shed.
|Vintage bar cart with ceramic and teak lamp, vintage planters (McCoy & Haeger),|
Red Mill deer family, and more antler sheds.
|My other "mantle" - vintage stereo cabinet used as a television stand.|
|Vintage elf sitting in a Viking glass ashtray.|
|A vignette of vintage Haeger planters,ashtrays, and candle holders with glass ornaments,|
deer figurines, and succulents from the summer along side poinsettias.
|Vintage yarn wreath adorns a door.|
So, how is your holiday season? Have you put some vintage in your decorating? Here's to 4 days until Christmas - are you ready?
