It is cold and very windy today and can't decorate the front porch,
so guess I will get started on the inside.
I have so many antique ornaments, it is hard for me to get away from the traditonal style,
but I do like County primitives too.
Each year I review my past decorations to be inspired and try not to repeat the tree and decorations.
I guess I lost the rest in my computer crash.
The tall (14") guy is an antique all cotton Snowman. Small lights can be inserted in the back of him to light him up. The Snowman next to him is styrofoam and vintage ... other one is new.
On the Entry table, I usually create a snow scene with Snowmen, deer and vintage bottlebrush trees. The lighted house with Santa and a tree inside is actually an up-cycled birdhouse.
I have a huge collection of Santa's, but with Snowmen, I can leave them displayed longer.
This vintage silverplated Navitity Scene is alway a must-have.
This year, I have been so attracted to white collectables and primitives and thought I would do a mantel decoration with white and silver, but now feeling it will not have the warmth that I want.
Thinking this white cheese cloth covering tiny white lights for the foundation would resemble snow ... we will see.
6 yards for $2.00. Good deal.
Most everthing here is a 'good deal' from Thrift Stores or
Estate Sales. I am a 'thrifty shopper'.
Or green ...
This 1898 "Christmas Gifts" poster with an advertisement calendar on the back will make a special addition to my Christmas decorating.
