I am not hosting family at my place for Christmas. Nor am I having a merry shin-dig with eggnog and a jazzy holiday CD.
In fact, my holiday decor will be seen mostly by me. Regardless, I still like to surround myself with some holiday cheer!
Starting on my patio, an old pail full of greenery.
While browsing the shop Needful Things across the street from where our space is at the Painted Lady Vintage the other night, I found this piece of plaid wool fabric in a box. The owner Robin let me have it for $3, (on the honor system) because I didn't have cash. It made a perfect tree skirt!
My oven top even got a little touch of holiday red, too.
Remember these cream candle holders from my fall decor? They got dressed up with little wreaths. Around 5 years ago I cleaned out Dollar Tree's stock of these wreaths! They are real twigs and pine cones with faux greenery and berries. I LOVE them and use them every year!
I got this dome and silver plate at a flea market last fall. I frequently change out what I put inside. I tried a little tree (also from Dollar Tree) but ended up changing it to a bright red vintage Santa, which was perfect! The only thing I want to add is a little faux snow or greenery on the silver plate under his feet.
Those are just a few of my favorite holiday decorations so far this year. I still have a few more ideas....but I'm off to put the finishing touches on those rustic barn wood picture frames Farmboy put together for me. Let me tell you, they are gorgeous and I'm going to have a hard time parting with any of them!!
