Hi there, Friends! Welcome to A Vintage Charm Christmas where you'll be able to visit all of your Vintage Charm hostesses for holiday inspiration--vintage style! Today I'll be sharing some of my favorite vintage Christmas treasures...
Whether this is your first stop, or you're visiting from one of the other Vintage Charm blogs, I'm glad you're here! Grab your coffee or hot cocoa, get comfy and enjoy visiting!
When it comes to vintage ornaments, I am slightly obsessed.
I've been collecting them for several years and now I can't imagine decorating for the holidays without them. Each year, I challenge myself to display them in different ways. This year, I'm loving them mixed with vintage silver and milk glass.
I dressed up my china cabinet shelves too.
I'm pretty sure the luscious colors are part of the attraction.
I had fun creating this vintage suitcase vignette--I'm like a kid in a candy store!
I added more vintage ornament eye candy to my DIY reclaimed door fireplace hearth.
Previously, I've hung vintage ornies from the chandelier,
crafted wreaths and
dressed up a repurposed bedspring tree with them. Like I said--slightly obsessed ;)
Now that I've shared my love affair with vintage ornaments, ready to see more of my favorite vintage treasures? Most of my collections are scored during my thrifting adventures and my home decor reflects my love of layering vintage with my upcycled and repurposed finds. An exception is my nativity set which has been passed down from my grandmother to my mother and now to me and holds a special place in my heart.
This year I've challenged myself to mix things up a bit with my decorations, so I moved it from its usual place on the mantel to the dining room.
Here's a sneak peak of my holiday tablescape set with the vintage Friendly Village I scored at a yard sale. Stay tuned, I'll be sharing the rest soon, including a tutorial for mini rosemary wreaths, a simple garden greenery centerpiece plus a different look for my ever changing chandy!
Earlier this week, I shared my nontraditional mantel and a tutu tree skirt, both inspired by the Nutcracker Ballet.
I also shared how I shopped my home to cozy up my bedroom for the holidays and winter months.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing how I use my vintage ornaments and other thrifted treasures as Christmas decor. Be sure to drop by and visit the other Vintage Charm hostesses!
