**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** ViNtaGe Tole Christmas Tree!*!*!

I have one ViNtaGe Christmas Holiday Decoration that I can call "My-Most-Favortie" ~ ViNtaGe Tole Christmas Tree with berries... birdies... candles - BeSt!*!*!

 I can never get enough of vintage clip-on birds!*!*!  I love the ones with a time-worn patina and "2" wire legs...  Birdies like this stay up in our home through February...


Each year I display the tree in a different spot...


We started a traditon ~ lighting it on the table every Christmas Eve...  Soooooo beautiful!*!*!

Wisconsin Weather Report
We did not get as much snow here as expected, but the storm took down one of our beautiful old cedar trees - blocking our driveway... Temperatures are Below Zero this morning...  Lots of Ice under the snow...  Definitely a day to wear the UGGS inside -or- Out!*!*!

  8. Love your Christmas Candelabra Tree, I am such a pyro at Christmastime, I've got candles ablaze everywhere! *smiles* I just love the atmosphere candlelight and Christmas Fairy Lights create... it's truly magical! Thanks for stopping by my Flea Market Style Post... yes, I too love chippy shabby Treasures... Architectural Salvage is my particular weakness! *wink*
