VBF ~ Holiday Inspiration

This Vintage Rosary is a perfect start for Holiday decorating
I know that the norm in Blogland is anything white: chippy white, creamy white, antiqued white, shabby white. I am now and always will be the exact opposite of anything normal ~ which is why Wednesday's  are not east for this gal. Therefore, I will always choose black. I was looking around my Maison de Vintage this morning trying to find a little inspiration. Everywhere i look ~ black accents. Hard to decorate for the Holidays with this much faded black ~ but I do try to make it work. It just takes me until after New Years:)

I mostly gravitate for metal accent pieces ~ trays, jewelry, candlesticks, frames, etc. So without further ado.....

This months Vintage Black Friday... now if I could only incorporate these into Vintage Christmas............

This may work around some pine greens and berries

Okay ~ I see where this candleabra may work
These tart tins actually make great ornaments or tealight holders

Okay, maybe Im not in as bad shape for Holiday decorating as I thought I was .   Thanks for hanging around while I think out loud.

  1. I love thinking out of the box. All of your black pieces are wonderful. I can't wait to see what you do. I am always on the look out for inspiration. Hugs, Marty

  2. Dee, I just LOVE the black!! I think your right, some greens and berries will work wonderful to incorporate it for the Holiday Season, I'd love to see more of your home, I think black really brings in the drama. Thanks for sharing it on VIF!!
    big hugs,

  3. I am with you...I have more black than I do white around here...I have an idea for your teapot...a small rosemary shaped christmas tree inside your black teapot? I am putting one inside my silver urn..not only festive but smells good too. lol

    Happy VBF...

  4. Dee, I have very little white myself and always feel the odd girl in the crowd. I love the candleabra. The thing is to be true to your decorating style. merry♥O

  5. Your silver and black is so beautiful ~ maybe you could gather them together on a tray, sprinkle some snow around them and fill them with greens!

  6. Dee beautiful finds I love the candelabra!

  7. Oh, I love all your treasures!!! And in my own house, other than columns and cornices, my accents are black...I thought I was the only woman in America who didn't have all I love your beautiful pieces.
