*CHriStMas HoLiDay Vibe* - using *Re-Purposed Vintage Finds...


~*  HeLLooo D*E*C*E*M*B*E*R  *~

It's been somewhat "bittersweet" - Not kicking off the Christmas HoLiDay Season by selling SHaBBies at a few ViNtaGe Holiday Shows this year...  HOWEVER ~ "I HAVE ENJOYED BEING ON THE "OTHER-SIDE" by shopping some of these wonderful speciality markets/events!!!

"From the moment I saw Her"...
I just knew that this now Re-Purposed ViNtaGe Garden Angel Statue, would be the major Star/Anchor of inspiration for the rest of my Christmas HoLiDay Vignette - This Year!!!

Since we moved "twice" in the last 3 years, I finally pulled out one of my favorite Arched Architectural Display Pieces!  I have missed it sooooo!!!   Too heavy to "temporarily hang" for just this Seasonal Vignette, I used these fab wavy drawers as a "Prop-Base" for the Arch.  I loved how it turned out adding dimensional interest...

LoVe this ViNtaGe "Church Village" with Deer, Bottle Brush Wreath & Trees...  ViNtage ~ Soooo Much MORE INTERESTING than Brand New!*!*!  The little string lights are like "icing-on-the-cake"!

Embellished ViNtaGe Bottle Brush Wreath with BiRdie...  LoVe the rusty color against the off-white Vintage Tree.  The ChiPPy Wooden Base is a "re-purposed find"!  It was one of those things that was so perfectly chippy with fab form, - that I just had to buy it!  At the time I had "no idea" what I would do with it...   Sooooo glad I bought it!!!

HeLLooooo NoVeMBeR!*!*!

~*SaVoRiNg The LaSt of FaLL's Colors *~
I LoVe how the "Oak Leaves"
 - Still Hang On through Thanksgiving...

  I tend to get so much inspiration from nature.  I broke-off a colorful branch of these oak leaves on a recent walk.   I found a fab old rusty bottle tote in my ChiPPy-SHaBBy STaSh to showcase them in.  The natural time-worn R*U*S*T*E*D PaTiNa was the perfect compliment for these leaves!  I just couldn't bear putting away the "Hickory Haven" Squirrel - just yet either...   It compliments the vignette nicely!

When the month of November is brought up in conversation, the first thought most people have is THanKsGiVinG!!!  This is one of the most "over-looked" Holidays for Seasonal Display!!!  ~ Most likely due to the Christmas Holiday now clicking at our heels...  In "Our-House" I most certainly don't skip over this holiday!  Whimsical Turkey Serving Platters/Dinnerware adorn our table, along with a "fun vintage collection of Turkey this & that in my seasonal vignette area.

Sometimes *JuSt SiMpLe* is good, not needing to display everything in my STaSH!
Now that the HaLLoWeeN is put away ~ time to "SEE" what develops for this year's Thanksgiving Display!

This Year's ViNtaGe HaLLoWeen Vignette

I've been collecting ViNtaGe HaLLoWeen FOR YEARS! 
I have such found childhood memories of HALLOWEEN... 

When I was "5years old" my paper candy bag was TOO BIG!  I dragged it all over town up & down the sidewalks.  ~ I wore a hole in the bottom of the bag, yielding next to none candy by the time I got home!!! 

*FaVoRiTe Collection*
ViNtaGe Gurley HaLLoWeen Candles!!!  I LoVe the WITCHES the most!  
The Center PuMpKin (less commonly seen) is actually a waxed candy container made by Fanny Farmer Candy Co.
