Vintage Inspiration Friday #14 Join the Christmas Fun!

I honestly cannot believe it's December!
This year has just flown by,
and speaking of flying...
my turkeys have finally left the building!

Today is the first day of
Vintage Inspiration Friday
for Christmas

Hope you'll join in with some of your
vintage and vintage inspired Christmas goodies.

Grab the button and please link back in your post
so others can join the Holiday fun!

Since I'm still working on the kitchen redo,
(I'll have some photos next post!)
I needed to take a break and change out the sunroom.

I found these adorable bottle brush trees with baby Shiny Brites

And this year I tried bleaching some old bottle brush trees and wreaths.
So a few of them are dressing up my little house for the Holidays.

Looooove the little zinc garden marker

 I'm getting a start on decorating for Christmas,
it's turning out to be so much fun in the "new" kitchen.

Hope you'll join the party,
and share your Christmas!


I'm joining in with these other great Holiday Parties

  23. Hi Debra
    It all looks so festive... I think everyone is behind this year, I thought I would have so much time this Christmas with the shop gone but I haven't been able to catch up
    I am doing a booth at the fleamarket this weekend and then thats it... I am coming to a screeching halt. Wish I could join you this week but got to get back to work

  24. That's it, I'm gonna start stalking fleas for some shiny brites over the next year :) Those trees are so cute!

    Looks like lots of great links this to drool! Thanks for hosting...

  25. love those little trees! can't wait to see Christmas in the new kitchen!

  26. Would you believe I haven't done a thing...not even an icicle...unless you count the ones from last year that I missed with the vacuum! At least you can say you're redoing your kitchen...I have no excuse. I'd have to use last year's photos to play this week...but I'll play next...I promise!
    I'm so glad you started with the sunroom. You know how I feel about that magical room!

  27. Debra,
    Thanks for hosting each week. Such a fun and 'inspirational' time here.

  33. LoVe the Look of vintage trees loaded with shiny bling ornaments!*!*!
    Jeanine, ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!

  34. Your home always looks so pretty! I just love your bottle brush tree! Good luck with your kitchen redo. We painted our kitchen cabinets white earlier this year and am so glad we did. It was a lot of work, but I love the way it turned out!

  35. Very cute bottle brush trees. I am a sucker for those things. I am going to try to bleach some this year. Do they have to be vintage or can I do it with the sisel ones I saw at Home Depot? And thanks for hosting.

  36. Your decorating is just beautiful! As for the little organizer that "needs something" how about putting ornaments that have lost their hangers, maybe even vintage ones? Or I would look for other little orphan Christmas decorations to decorate it with to brighten it all up with some sparkle!

    I am canning applesauce today, so I need to get back to stirring, but thanks so much for hosting this party!

  37. Debra,
    Love it! Shiney & bright, just the way Christmas should be. That little chippy birdhouse is the coolest.
    Thank you for today. Your words meant more than you could know. Lisa
