**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** ViNtaGe Christmas Vignette...

Like Jan of "Gracie's Cottage"... WHY DID I WAIT SOOOOOO LONG to complete my Christmas Holiday Vignette!?!?!?  I feel sooooo much better now!!!  I ended up putting just a minimal "icing on the cake" ~ if you want to call it that...  I just LoVe how it turned out!*!*!  Almost everything is "ViNtaGe" & a little bit "ChiPPy" ~ of course!!!

I always like to start out a vignette with an
"ANCHOR-PIECE"...
The Architectural Column was it...




With Christmas just days away, I really didn't want to "pull out ALL my ViNtAge Christmas"...
Soooooo ~ I choose "one box full" ~ of my FaVoRiTe GREEN VINTAGE BOTTLE BRUSH TREES...  I had the PeRfeCt Old Green Metal Stand to display them on!*!*!  It has the best wrought iron legs ~ seen in my last photo...




Here's a close-up of "ChiPPy-Santa"...
BeSt!!! ~ Natural time-worn chippy paint patina...  "Sooooo much more interesting than brand new"!!!



I love "birdies" any time of year!!!
Rusty old milk bottle carrier serves as a prop ~ "flipped-over" adorned with greens & holiday twinkle lights...  The bird cage is adorned with a bit of bling & birdies...




A bit of Vintage Garden mixed in a Holiday Vignette ~ makes for such a special look!*!*!
The URN rests on top of the architectural column and supports Tree Branch Cuttings along with a Bird's Nest...



I was lucky enough to net this vintage  "Green Chenille Tree" some years back...  Although it's not as old as my "White Chenille Tree" - that I recently posted, It still has it's own unique look...




This ViNtaGe Wreath is soooooo SHaBBy!*!*!  Great focal point hung on the architectural post...

  12. I'm in Love with your Vintage Bottlebrush Tree Collection... grouped together it makes such an impact! I just bought my first two this Christmas even though I've had a love affair with them for years I never could find the perfect ones til this year... I'm fairly certain I'll be adding to them over time! *winks* You know how it is... a couple is never enough and too many is just enough! *LOL* I also like the Old Metal Crate with lit greenery inside.
