This year I wanted to do something completely out of the ordinary for Christmas, I wanted a very vintage/thrifted Christmas! Everything I am about to show you either came from an antique shop, or thrift store! (included in there are handmade vendors inside antique malls)
*NOTE* The pictures are not very good quality, I had to take them at night and with my iphone..... continue at your own risk.
Here is our giant mantel with the oh so beautiful thing we call the tube.... I am doing all I can to work with what I've got!
Some piano player music (am i saying that right) Only $5 for the roll, and it is so perfect!
This metal star garland almost reminds me of cookie cutters.... maybe an idea??
I was wandering around Goodwill, and happened upon a bag full of wooden spools, some new, some old, but ALL of them for $0.99! Hello, who could resist? Plus I will use them at a later date for some sewing room decor, SCORE!
I just put them in the dome, and added some battery operated lights from Ikea......
Do you kind of see a theme? Vintage/seamstress???
Another dome, this one has music paper shreds, silver vintage ornaments, and silver pinecones, also lit up with lights! I added some old skeleton keys for the extra ahh!
A close up of the burlap rosette I made for my wreath.....
I should note that once I finish our stockings, this wreath will have to move! I will have those finished when I take the pictures of my Christmas tree!
here is the wreath I made....
I grabbed two of these buckets at a
local vintage shop in Shedd Oregon! They are called Christmas at the Shed, and the place was UHMAZING! I want to say local, but it's about a 45 minute drive for me! But well worth it, and I cannot wait to back next year!
Here are a couple more mantel shots...
And just before you go... here is a sneak peek of the tree... I am planning on getting that post up tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
