Revisiting this post for the 2013 Holiday linky parties! A lot has changed with our house but my love of vintage Christmas will never go out of style! I hope you will stop by my blog soon to see my 2013 Holiday home!
Its two weeks before Christmas and all through our home, you'll find Christmas treasures, wherever you roam...
and a burlap -draped tree
and a glorious Santa who stands underneath...
The stockings are hung on salvaged shutters with care, near that jolly old guy who fits perfectly there
Just turn to the right, and what you will see, are more Christmas treasures
placed especially by me.
Each one has a story, and most cost just a quarter...( It won't take you long to find out I'm a hoarder.)When I see it, I buy it, and I never regret it, and each one of those stories, I never forget it...
I dug in a box for this old feather tree
...Collected these tins, when I was eighteen...
My banister garland is one-of-a-kind
each item I used is a second-hand find...
When I go Christmas junkin, I'm a girl on a mission, for all of those vintagey-things I've been wishin.' And when I find them, its purely divine: "That quarter knee-hugger is mine! IT's ALL MINE!"
My eyes, how they twinkle, my heart is so merry (I'm a serious junker.. its really quite scary...)
I may buy things and hoard them, but I also create. If you're a true junker, I know you'll relate.
I made this collage from things dear to my heart. Its a wonderful thing when your junk is your art!
It is two weeks before Christmas, the most blessed season
and sometimes as we hurry we forget the real reason...
For the most priceless treasure---our Lord Jesus--- his birth,
for goodwill toward men, and peace here on earth.
