Christmas Snippets around the House

I've had a few minutes to sneak away today to just put together a few pics; little vignettes and snippets from around the house this week. I'm on my second planting of Paperwhites in the ironstone tureen. These are just getting started. And one of the wonderful candles from Kristen at Ella Claire, the Shoppe in an old grain scoop that I painted with ASCP last week. Holly and yew clippings make it Christmas-y.






LOVE the NOEL Banner she also sent me!



A Birch cone filled with faux greens, and some 
Holly and Ivy on the front door.



Silver basket with old Shiny Brites in the Living Room



Little concrete statue in the Dining Room with crown.



Hallway sideboard with feather tree.



Tarnished silver champagne bucket holds the tree.



These precious clay tags from
Rosemary at Villabarnes became ornaments.



She keeps coming up with wonderful new designs.



Each season I try to do something a little different with the urn on the coffee table. This year I added a small garland to the wreath with faux fruit that surrounds the faux evergreen topiary.











And one of my Nativity pieces; 
this snow globe that's also a music box 
from my husband a few years ago.






Tiny embossed greeting cards designed by my grandfather,
 from his printing shop from the 1930's. I really treasure these.




And on our way home from St. Louis earlier this month, we stopped by Washington, Missouri for a little lunch and antique shopping. I snapped these pics of two lovely homes in the historic district all dressed  for Christmas.







Love the ribbon on this wreath from the The Old Dutch Inn.




We always open presents on Christmas Eve,
 so the fun starts in just a few hours.
Have a blessed Christmas, everyone!
xoxo,
p.s. we'll be having Vintage Inspiration as usual this week
if you'd like to join in.
hope to see you then!
