For a fleeting moment when I posted the first of my decorating on December 1, I thought it might fun to post a quick picture every day until Christmas. Haha! Here it is a week later . . . sigh. Maybe if there were a few more hours in the day . . . or if I slept a few less hours . . . or if I was home for more than a few hours a day. We all know the road to hell is paved with good intentions :)
Anyway . . . I have been busy decorating and have most of it done except for the big tree. Once again I failed miserably at the less is more concept. The only thing I did not put up is my antique feather tree with MANY ornaments but I'm feeling a bit guilty about that, so that is subject to change.
A box of tarnished ornaments purchased at a show this fall for only $1.00.
Now sitting in an old bowl. I think I need to add a few red berries or some holly.
More old ornaments in an antique trencher with an angel from internet friend Judi ~ a former Buckeye and mom to three pug boyz.
Plastic Santas and reindeer ~ same vintage as me :)
Snowballs I made 5 - 6 years ago in an old carrier with reproduction redware plate.
Great graphics in an old cigar box.
My mantle. The samplers and hogscrapers are antique. The Santas are not. The sampler with the greens is the first antique sampler I purchased, probably 25 years ago.
I've also started a little hooked mat that I hope to give as a Christmas gift. It's Maria's (Star Rug Company) latest snowman. He's only 9" x 12" and cute as can be.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
