In the Air, There's a Feeling of Christmas

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.

So, how is your holiday season? Have you put some vintage in your decorating? Here's to 4 days until Christmas - are you ready?
