Hi! I thought I'd give you all a tour of how I've decorated for Christmas. Nobody in my family really appreciates all the vintage goodness I've displayed, but I knew you all would!
This piece is on a wall you see as you first come in the front door. It's the perfect spot for most of my collections, since there are glass doors that can keep little hands off!
I made the vintage ornament wreath a couple years ago. The images displayed on either side are pages from a vintage Christmas book.
Inside the hutch are lots of little collections. I didn't take individual photos of them all this year, but the displays are similar to those that are shown here.
On top of my computer hutch is our first little tree. I just love it! I've put all my knee-hugger elves there, as well as a few other vintage Christmas characters.
The large Santa was a thrift find last year- he's a really nice one!
Here's our main tree. It's a pretty standard tree (fake) with all the kids' and family ornaments. In the background you can see a sneak peek of my Christmas dollhouse! But I'm going to save that for another post!!
In our bedroom, I put another small tree with lots of my vintage glass ornaments. This way, they're less likely to get broken.
The vintage tree skirt I got a couple years ago finally has a place to go! It's the perfect size!
Just some close-ups of some of the pretty ornaments!
Every single one of them was found thrifting!
This is our family room, where the fireplace and stockings reside.
My mother-in-law cross-stitched all the stockings. The Santa face painting over the fireplace came from a craft fair a few years ago.
My vintage Santa collection. My favorite is the tall guy in the middle!
Sitting up inside the wreath there is our "Elf on the Shelf". I used a vintage one I already had. The kids named him "Silly Pinnochio", and he watches over everyone from his perch!
Down the hall are the "vintage" stockings I made last year. You can see more info here.
I have many more glass balls than will fit on my tree, so the rest of them are scattered throughout in containers like this.
