Vintage Christmas Monday at the Seed Box Open House

Joan at Anything Goes Here is starting a new party this Monday called

"Vintage Christmas Monday".

We are posting vintage Christmas items or anything "Christmas" made with vintage items. This gives me a good opportunity to show you a few photos from "The Seed Box" Christmas Open House that I attended last Friday evening.

Many of you are familiar with "The Seed Box"  that is Brian and Meloney Russell from Chadwick, Missouri. Brian and Meloney had a store in Ozark for several years and now attend as dealers, several of the shows in Texas. Theresa of Garden Antiques Vintage has showcased Brian and Mel many times in her blog. They live in a wonderful old homestead in the hills of southern Missouri. The following are just a few of the Christmas items that they had for sale and display at their Open House.

I fell in love with this very old concrete display of the nativity. Here are several photos of it, which was located on their front porch.

This is their fireplace mantle in the Living Room. Meloney used old bottles with letters wrapped with wire to spell out many Christmas words and phrases. This one is "JOY".

Christmas trees decorated with old paintbrushes
were located on the porch for a really fun touch.

Thank you Joan, for starting this great party.

I'm going to have to get busy, since I don't have any of my Christmas decor out. So by next week I should have a few things within reach.
I'm really looking forward to seeing all the "Vintage Christmas". Be sure and head over to Anything Goes Here and check out the others that are gathering their Vintage Christmas Goodies!

This was just a teaser...
Be sure and come back later today for more photos of

The Seed Box

Have a great Monday!
