Christmas Copy Cat

Happy Weekend Everyone!

One of my favorite link parties is Debbiedoos' Copy Cat Challenge, where we take an inspirational image from a magazine, book, Pinterest, etc. and then try to "copy cat" the look. 

This time, I chose an image from one of my favorite Christmas books, Merry and Bright , a Country Living Publication that came out several years ago. It's full of wonderful vintage ideas  for decorating with a Vintage Christmas.

I don't have a lot, but Red Transferware is always a staple for my Vintage Christmas decor.

And of course a little glittered Bottle Brush Tree

This is just an easy little "copy cat" with a lot of charm.

I'm posting early since Monday is The Marketplace
over here at Common Ground.
But run by Debbie's and get your Copy Cat on in plenty of time
 for her fun party this Monday December 10!

 Have a great weekend!


  1. Oooh I love yours Debra!... now I want to do that with one of my red vintage cups!... can't wait till Monday Marketplace again!... Happy Weekend!...xoxo Julie Marie

  2. I love red and white transferware especially at Chrismtas time, Debra! I did the same thing with a little bottlebrush tree but its in my brown and white transferware teacup. I need to work on getting some red. This is such a sweet little touch that fits in well anywhere!

  3. Simple and so pretty. Love the red transfer ware, Debra.

  4. Hi Debra!
    I have that book! Your 'copy cat' looks fabulous!!!

  5. Merry and Bright is one of my favorites, too. I pulled out an old silver goblet and have a snowman sitting in it. I copied the idea from this great book.

    Your decoration turned out so well and this is a great idea for a blog link.


  6. Debra, what a great copycat you are! Love the red transferware; and the little bottle brush tree! You did a fabulous job!

  7. Oh that is so pretty!!! I have the same in a flow blue cup and saucer....just a little something in a little spot....

  8. Your copycat is spot on!! I love it. So sweet!

  9. Great copycat and great cup and saucer. Perfect holiday color.

  10. I love your 'copy cat' it's too cute. And what a great idea for a linky party. Hmm, I'll have to think about that.

  11. The little tea cup makes it so sweet! Perfect for a doll house, Debra! I love tiny glittered trees. I wish I had more.

  12. Debra- How beautiful. I LOVE red transferware. I don't have a lot of it but I want more of it for the next house I am in. It is just gorgeous- xo Diana

  14. My go-to "copycat" idea I stole from a dear friend about a hundred years ago...wrapping the extra toilet paper in Christmas tissue paper. Shall I take a photo and show it? LOL
    Yours is much prettier and sweeter than a pix of T.P.!

  15. Debra,
    Love, LOVE, L O V E this little vintage bottle brush in the red and white transfereware cup and saucer!!! The more I see the red and white transferware, the more I'm convinced that it may have a future, at some point and time, On Crooked Creek!

  16. Hi Debra,
    Nothing is prettier at Christmas time than red transferware. I love the little tree tucked inside.
    Great copy idea.


  17. This is such a great Christmas decor idea! Your copy cat is every bit as good as the inspiration piece! Merry Christmas!
