I am sure most of you are 'done' with seeing Christmas decoration but here are some I did not get time to post before Christmas.
I have a sizable collection of vintage bottle brush trees but this year I enjoy bleaching and dying the new ones.
Pictures will speak for themselves.
Trees inside a tree.
... old metal cogs anchor this tree
new bleached trees ... love how they turned out.
antique mercury glass deer ornament
and $ Store white trees.
With these last two pictures, you are getting a peek at the antique, re-purposed kitchen cabinet that I put in our remodeled bathroom.
Reveal coming soon.
Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus took their old beat-up Tonka truck to the tree farm.
(no cab, so now it is a convertible)
I have had these figures for years and did not realize they were knee huggers until I was stuffing them in this truck.
This vintage car is about 12" long
This had to be the worse tree on the lot.
This little car is only about four-inches long but he can carry his tiny tree in his rumble seat.
I asked our grandsons (21 and 23) why this back seat, out in the weather, was called a 'rumble-seat'.
Both whipped out their cellphone and Goggled it.
Very interesting, at least they thought it was.
Went back in time ... a bench/seat on the back of a carriage for footmen or servants.
Also, in an automobile ... called the mother-in-law seat
or honeymoon seat.
Too long to go into details here ...
This vintage, crinkle-wire-wrapped,
mercury glass tree topper hangs upside down on the chandelier over the dining table.
Happy New Year 2015
