Vintage Christmas Monday

Welcome to Vintage Christmas Monday... Hosted by Joan at Anything Goes Here If you need any Christmas inspiration be sure and go over to her blog and view all the wonderful posts listed there.
This Monday I am showing a few things in the shop and some displays that are my favorite. I hope you enjoy them.

I particularly love old silver and nothing is better for Christmas than old silver trays and Christmas greens. One of my favorite greens to use is boxwood and also seeded eucalyptus.

Love this old set of Tom and Jerry, the creamy white and gold look so festive!

Mix this with a little greens and it is a beautiful Christmas display... simple but beautiful.

Here are a collection of old silver frames put into a silver bowl...copy some of your favorite Christmas pictures mixed with a little bottle brush tree and it makes a wonderful Christmas display.

A couple of bottle brush trees under a dome on an old silver coaster

I like to take my garden statues at Christmas Angels or urns and mix a little candle light and greens and you have a wonderful center piece.

I will be posting pictures of my Vintage Christmas Open House later in the week. Thank you for all your good wishes and thoughts. It turned out to be such a fun weekend.
I hope your Christmas season is starting out good and I wish you all the blessings of love and the miracles that this special time of year brings.

  14. Hi Rebecca! Oh how I wanted to come to your open house...there were just too many things to cram into one weekend...I saw Ensie at Kasey's event on Sat night and she said she had made it over to your open house and I told her I was so bummed I missed it! I really am going to make it in before Christmas though...I can't miss the opportunity to take in all of your beautiful inspiration!! I'm so happy it went well for you!

    Blessings ~

  15. I just love all of the whites and creams and silver.
    Awesome- especially the bottle brush trees.


  16. Hi Rebecca,
    So much beauty all in one place! I feel so inspired now after this walk through your gorgeous shop. So much to see and it is all just amazing.

  17. Oh, Rebecca! Everything looks WONDERFUL! Wish I could make a hole in time and space and come right over for a visit ... (and some shopping??). You have such a nice way of putting things together, it always makes me smile. And I, too, am crazy about the cream bottle brush wreath ... YUMMY!
    I, too, am a Christmas baby ... well, one day short. Are you ACTUALLY on the 25th? How we tried to solve the "problem" ??? ... a fake birthday, of course. Yep, the first cake on my real birthday ... when I turned 16.
    Happy Vintage Christmas Monday and have a great week!
    Betty :)
