christmas decorating with vintage finds

November 30, 2013

Almost every time I go to visit my mother in Central New York, we make our obligatory stop at this fabulous Antique Barn in her area. The place is filled with all sorts of findings and we spend hours looking at furniture and pawing through tchotchkes, dishes, clothing…stuff. I almost always walk out with something.

On our last visit there, I picked out a handful of items that I intended to use for a cute vintage Christmas vignette. When mixed in with some items I already had (from that Antique Barn), I was able to get something a little bit vintage, a little bit a simple, and a lot of merry.


The “merry” blocks, the adorable brass deer set, the record, and the books all came from that day.  The bowl was acquired on a different trip from that same shop.


I don’t typically do all-vintage, but once I saw these great items I decided to just go with it.  I was so excited to try out something a little out of my ‘zone’ and am happy with the results!Signature

    Gosh Anne… I just love everything you do! Such great antique finds. The entire vignette, including the wall decor, is so perfectly arranged. I’m very inspired!

    This is so sweet. Love those little deer. And the garland above is a perfect touch.
