I thought I would share a little bit of the touches of Christmas at my house. My decor is more on the simple side compared to so many beautiful blogs that have lovely displays on the mantle and other homey spots. I love that style. I simply don't have time to make it happen. So we go for a more simple touch and hope that it is still beautiful.
I purchased this cup and saucer at an estate sale. And the vintage ornament is from my childhood. Actually, I don't know how old it is, perhaps older than me. I don't even remember where the star came from. It was not new. I'm sure it came from a thrift store. It just seemed a shame for the cups to be empty. So each one got an ornament or two.
I purchased these salt and pepper shakers the first Christmas I was married. Oh! How I hate saying they are now considered vintage! When my daughter was very young, she used to play with them all month. They would go on adventures around the house, especially on the branches of the Christmas tree.
I found this cast stone bunny at a thrift store a few years ago. I just fell in love with his goofy expression. But he was painted horribly and someone had hot glued cotton all over his beard and the white parts of his hat and coat. Then there was spanish moss hot glued to the wreath and basket. Ugh! It took a long time to get him cleaned up. Then I repainted him. Now, he is one of my favorites.
This chair came from the estate sale where I got the cups and saucers. I believe it is handmade. And the bunny is actually a tree ornament. I got him at a garage sale several years ago. I have never seen another like him. I believe he is papier mache. But, actually, I'm not sure.
So, there is a little walk through of some of my favorite things. I'll show you a little more later.
