Vanessa's Vintage Christmas Ornaments & Decor!


Vintage Christmas Decor at www.vintagewhitesblog.com

Christmas has always been my favorite time of year, and most favorite time to decorate - especially with vintage. Although, I had a hard time getting into the Christmas spirit this year. I can't figure it out. Snow always helps and thus far...no snow.

But finally, trimming the house with holiday decor while singing along to old-time Christmas favorites certainly helped that "cheer" to arrive.

I strung layers of ruffled crepe paper, tinsel, and snow ball garland from the long shelf that hangs over the living room sofa. After adding the garland and some holiday pieces it needed some color. I added a few of my bright green and pink vintage ornaments and POP!

I've made it a goal to use more candles in the house. So on the end table I placed my old chippy cage, strung with some berries and candles nestled inside.

I'm in love with vintage ornaments this year, especially the light green ones. I found these from a couple vendors at the last Vintage Whites Market.

    1. Oh Thank you Cassie! I'm not a deer collector, but when I saw this one at an antique show a few months back, I couldn't resist. Sometimes you only need one.
