A Vintage Christmas

I spent yesterday doing a little "antiquing".  My friend's nephew, Lindsay is a "picker". He posts his ads on Kijiji and displays his finds in his Dad's barn.  I made an appointment to go out to poke around the barn and buy a couple of Windsor back chairs.  I've always wanted Windsor back chairs painted matte black so I'm half way there. They are going to go in the dining room when they are finished.  I got some cute napkin rings and a couple of Christmas cookies cutters and an old rusty tin box, absolutely covered in flowers.  I'm thinking it will look great with my McCoy pottery.  I'll share these things with you later but right now...

I wanted to show you some Christmas pretties that I bought at Craftworks. I love old Christmas decorations.

I've really been wanting some bottlebrush trees but everything I've found is in bad shape and very expensive so I broke down today and bought some cheapos from Walmart.  Hopefully I can make them look better in a vignette.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here....

  2. I love scouring antique stores for vintage ornaments. Some of my most treasured ornaments are from my first Christmas over 50 years ago. Can't wait to see what you do with the bottle brush trees!
