ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! **HoLiDay Tree CoNtaiNerS**

Once NOVEMBER 1st hits, I'm visualizing "Christmas HoLiDaY Decorations"!*!*!  I like to enhance my HoLiDaY Decor with unique ~ "one-of-a-kind" vintage adornments...  NOW is the time to find just that item AT INDOOR Antique / Holiday Shows... 

I snapped this pic "last-year" at ANTHROPOLOGIE...  OMG!*!*! That Cart is just to die-4!!!  I just picked up a "Small Industrial Cart" - perfect Holiday Idea for it - filled with trees or greens...

 I just LoVe these POTTERY BARN TREES!*!*!  The "burlap" adds such a unique touch ~ along with the random hint of pinecones on the fine branches...

This metal tree base is beyond FaBuLouS!*!*!  This is what I'm talking about... A very unique and creative way to re-purpose a metal container...  I snapped this pic last year at the November Grayslake Flea Market...  It may have been in Joan's Booth??? - Anything Goes Here Blog...


Here's another FaB Idea from Diane's Booth last year...  Adding a seasonal "Holiday Touch" changes everything this metal basket has to offer!!!

I love mixing in "Old Chippy Doors & Windows" with HoLiDay Decorations"!*!*!  This picture was taken last year at the RED ROOSTER'S "HoLiDay Open House, in Plymouth, Wisconsin...
I'll most certainly be ShoPPing this year's RED ROOSTER Holiday Open House - WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 3rd!!!

Yet another FaB ChiPPy Screen - adorned with HoLiDay Greens at the Red Rooster, last season...

Check back later this week to SEE what ViNtaGe Finds I net at the Rooster's Open House!!!  I'm sure to find something unique in "Julie Miller's Booth" - JunkInJulie Blog...  Hope to SEE some of you there...

***AND please do mark your calendar for GRAYSLAKE FLEA MARKET ON NOVEMBER 13th & 14th ~ Come Shop my ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Booth... (see sidebar for details)
