I signed on with Laura who pens the fun blog Hey Mom What's for Dinner to take part in her Christmas blog hop, formally called Thrifter Merry Christmas Blog Hop- what was I getting myself into it, I had never done one before and at Christmas, no less, didn't I have enough to do. Well, I did it!! I'm focusing on Christmas in my livingroom - I could share my kitchen and my family room too or outside, but lets face it, you probably don't want to look at all that stuff and I don't have time to photograph it all!!! Just a click on the picture will get you a closer view!
That's the two angles of my livingroom. I won't be sharing anything about my fireplace as I've already blogged about that and everything that's on top of it, in case you want to read the story of how my husband made that beautiful piece, here's that blog post.
As you can see I have two trees in this room, our main tree and in the corner is my memory tree, a tree that is full of decorations that belonged to my mother and grandmother and a couple more vintage ones on there as well. My main tree is mostly all vintage ornaments, either from "home" or thrifted - this is my second year for a tree like this, I used to have a primitive type tree with dark colors, now I've switched to all that kitschy Christmas stuff, I like it so much better!!
I have two corner shelves, both full of vintage Christmas. These shelves are a godsend to me, my husband made them, out of doors. I have a larger one in the kitchen, they hold so much stuff!! It's great to have a handy and crafty husband!!
There's a shelf dedicated to old lights and light boxes. I love that Shiny Brite wreath just as much as I did last year when I made it!!
The bannister is all decked out too - with an Annalee at the forefront!!
I took so many pictures for this post, it was really hard to pare it down, it was so hard to decide which ones to use. It was fun though and now, on to visiting the other gals! Why don't you link up some vintage Christmas?
