**ViNtaGe Christmas** in my home...

I'm still struggling with my ViNtaGe Christmas HoLiDay Vignette this year... I guess some years are just like this... I like "impact" - one key anchor piece in a vignette ~ with all the smalls supporting/adorning that key piece - without getting toooooo busy... I have 2 new anchor pieces this year ~ a fabulous chippy old wire gate & a smaller sized 2-die-4 "Reznor" radiator... Here are a few "sneak-peeks" of the vignette as a arrange ~ re-arrange myself out of this troubling too busy display... HELLLLLLLLLLLP!*!*!


I LoVe my ViNtaGe "SNOW CAN" Collection!*!*!




This Small Red ViNtaGe Watering Can is just adorable!*!*!





ViNtaGe "Bottle Brush Trees"...
Sneak-Peek of the REZNOR Radiator...






This is my FaVoRiTe ViNtaGe Bottle Brush Wreath...
The Old Mercury Balls have ~The BeSt~ PaTiNa!*!*!
***The "snow" is thick with the Mica Flakes***

These Old Iicicle Boxes have "The BeSt" fronts on them - but I just couldn't find a spot to stand them up and show them off...





I bought this darling vintage display box with the ornaments many years ago on Ebay...





Still BELOW ZERO this frosty morning here in Wisconsin...
Good News - THE SUN WILL BE OUT TODAY!*!*!

  1. Hi Jeanine! So far your vignettes look lovely to me, but I know what you mean when you said you were struggling!!! I too had a hard time getting it just right--"playing" until I was happy! I'm not sure how to email my pics to you...sooooo maybe I'll just print them out & mail them off. we'll see, maybe I'll start my own blog!!!!!
