**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** ViNtaGe Christmas Past Collections...

It's long over due for me to get my Seasonal Entry Vignette ready for Christmas...  I put the "anchor pieces"  up right after Thanksgiving - but that was it...  I guess I was just so focused on the past 2 shows I had been preparing for...   I usually view pics from "ChRisTmaS Past" to find some inspiration...  Here are a few pics from then...

 I just LoVed This PeRfeCtLy SHaBBy Wooden Box Tote!!!  I must have SOLD it at one time ~ never to be seen again...  What was I thinking????


This is my part of my "Snow Can" Collection...  I'm hoping to pick up another one yet this year...  I love old Ornament Hanger boxes too...


I have a HUGE Collection of Vintage Bottle Brush Trees...  Shown are some of the Green Ones with bling...


I remember having this empty metal planter in the garage for quite a few years...  Finally, last Christmas I filled it with greens, bling, & candles... - PeRfeCtLy SHaBBy!*!*!

  1. I have such a hard time with Christmas, don't want to see it come, can't wait for it to go...cause when it's gone, it's closer to Spring...AND it's too darned cold to get excited about it! Scrooge you say...maybe, but it's just not the same since it went commercial!

    But I wanna wish you a merry one in spite of it all!!!
