"ViNtaGe Christmas" Centerpieces w/BLiNg!*!*

This "Vintage Tole" Christmas Tree is my number one FaVoRiTe HoLiDaY item... I picked it up last year at "GraysLake Flea Market" from my favorite seller, Diane... It makes for the PeRfeCt Table Centerpiece...


I was lucky enough to find these small-sized red vintage candles
to fit in the holders...






I adore "birdies"!*!*! I clipped some old vintage mercury glass birds on the branches... The metal-tole has taken on a wonderful time~worn patina on the leaves and red berries...





I added a little "glistening bird nest" adorned with small ornaments in the nest...




I've had this 2-tier vintage planter in the garage for years... I just knew it was a FaBuLouS piece when I bought it... As I was looking for items to take to the Antique Show last week, I came across it... ~ Here's how I adorned it... It makes for a great table centerpiece!*!*! I can even keep the greens fresh - I added some floral oasis foam inside the clay pots to absorb water...




I added some HoLiDaY Bling in the center...
I think a clip-on bird or 2 might be nice... My beautiful gilt-gold Doves did not sell at the show ~ sooooooooo they'll be going underneath this display - PeRfeCt!!!

  1. jeanine, Being all snowed-in today I've been playing with some vignettes of my own. the pieces i bought from you at the show have now been the center stage pieces for my hearth and mantle!! with a natural, gardeny theme I've used cloches, birdhouses, architecural fragments, and other garden-inspired items. I'm taking pictures of all my vignettes and will try to email them to you since i don't blog (yet)!! I especially love your little birdie post card, a few of which i own as well..we do have very similar tastes!!! Happy snow day!! Julie
