First off, thanks for all the vintage Christmas love from my Christmas decor post! I know I teased you a bit with a glimpse of the dollhouse I decorated, so I won't keep you in suspense any longer! Here it is!
You guys are probably sick of hearing about this dollhouse, but it's been fun helping it realize its full potential! When I purchased the house, it seemed as though it may have been used as some sort of Christmas display, because there were Christmas lights rigged around it (the regular sized ones), and a chimney attached that was not original to the house. So this has stuck in my head, and I decided to go with it!
We have this odd archway in our front room that has always been a difficult decorating challenge. A couple years ago, Jason built the shelves you see. It's in the same room as the Christmas tree, so here is what I did this year!
I bought several of those light-up necklaces with mini Christmas bulbs, and rigged them around the house and on a couple trees. They flash at different times, so it was difficult to get a photo with them all lit, but you get the idea.
I used some quilt batting for snow on the ground and roof, and attached a wreath and "Merry Christmas" (from vintage ornaments) to the front. (Unfortunately, we're missing a door- will have to find one soon!)
I already had the Santa, reindeer, and sleigh from my vintage Christmas collection. They are the perfect scale!
The bottlebrush trees were also in my Christmas stash.
It's such a fun little display. Frankly, I think I enjoy it more than anyone else in the house, but I just love it! I hope you did, too!!
And yes, we really do have snow falling inside our house- don't you see it in all the photos? No, I just went a little crazy with the "snow" filter in Picnik!
