Vintagey Christmas

Im getting beary tired of all this decorating
Im still rummaging through old boxes ad picking and choosing what the style of decorating will be this Christmas. Nope - still not decided, although is evolving into a rather eclectic hodgepodge of old and well loved everyday items with a bit of my comfy Christmas items and a lot of nature. Lots of evergreens, holly  and the like.

Therefore, since my house looks like the victim of a natural disaster, I will once again show some awesome photos from The Country Livings holiday decor book ~ Merry & Bright. I know...broken record, but there are some very cool ideas (and yummy cookie recipes) in there.
Does this look dangerous to anyone else?
This is one idea I have stolen for my mantel
Even I can do this ~ simply gorgeous

  3. I love the bears......they seem to be fading in popularity but not at my house.

  4. The baby shoe is great! Love the bears tho!


  5. I love those photos from that magazine-great ideas never get old-I'm still pulling out a few things since I really don't decorate for the holidays-this blogging thing really makes you change you're perspective!

  6. Hi the party crackers! I saw some at Williams Sonoma the other day in a 12 days of Christmas theme. Never thought to make my own...looks like I will be busy today!

  7. I may have to borrow some of these fantastic ideas!


  8. You have beautiful things, love your decorations...especially the bears.

  9. Hi Dee, that's such a great book!!Love the images! Have fun with all your Christmas goodies, can't wait to see what you put together!! Thanks so much for linking up!
    big hugs,

  10. I have this book too and I love it! I hope you have a happy holiday!

  11. Adrienne, I have missed so many posts over here and I am sorry! I am trying not to be busy and just enjoy the holidays but it's so hard not to run run. Also with moving craziness-it doesn't help. Miss you and hope you have decided on your holiday decor! I love the bears and those white Christmas trees on the mantel.
