Christmas Block Party, Vintage Inspiration Friday # 67 and a Give Away!

Hey Everyone, The Christmas Blogger Block Party is going strong!
Hope you'll join in today for all the fun,
"anything vintage or vintage inspired Christmas".

So what have I been doing this week...?
Well... decorating like a crazy woman,
and then trying to clean up my mess!

I started collecting vintage Christmas Churches and Houses
a few years ago; they really bring out the kid in me,
they're so much fun to play with.

This year I let the Holiday Cupboard hold them all.


I usually keep the lower level of our house a little more "rustic and country",
but this year I changed it up a bit.


Now it's a glitter paradise!



I was able to fit most of them in,
and what I couldn't, went on the Dining Room tree.


Some of these aren't vintage, but I love blending them all together.


The cupboard is a conglomeration of vintage prints, trays, some ironstone,
glitter reindeer, and a few vintage nativity lambs.


Vintage red bottle brush wreath






I also wanted to share some of the ornaments 
from my little tree in the Dining Room;
Little Putz houses and vintage Shiny Brites.



It's so pretty when the lights are dimmed.







Hmmm...and the backend of a reindeer.



OK, so here's the front end!



Last week was one of the biggest parties yet,
Thanks everyone who participates!
Here's some of the wonderful inspiration:
