Vintage Cottage Christmas

I used an old chenille blanket for a tree skirt. Just love the snowy look of it.
I found the big snowflakes at a Flea Market this fall. You can certainly tell that they were vintage by the old yellowed price tag and the mellowed, creamy color of the glitter.They were a dollar each. I wish that I had bought all twenty of them instead of just ten. Isn't that always the case?
Kept it simple on the mantel with herbs and chalkboard pots. The stockings will go up this week.
Mr. CG just got the mantel up recently and it doesn't have a finish on it yet. Just picture it stained or painted, k?
This is the second year I've had this nativity. I found it new in the box at a garage sale. I just love it because there is a scripture verse on each piece. This probably will get a little greenery and lights around it before it's all said and done!
Dining room buffet and chandelier adorned with greenery and sparkle.
Framed silverware just for fun.
Apothecary jars filled with snow and mini pine trees.
More silver and greenery.
The hutch in my kitchen is decked out in traditional red and green. Along with some velvet deer that I bought last year after Christmas.
These Santa mugs are dated 1960 on the bottom. We don't drink out of them but I love 'em anyway! Next to them is my Mother's pitcher. I remember having Iced tea out of it as a child.
Any dishes that are red and green are going to end up in my kitchen hutch this year!
The sitting area in my bedroom is home to a little parchment paper tree, that I found at a Flea Market of course.
Estate sale bird prints. I painted the frames. Roadside find wood carved bedframe. Gotta love it!
These vintage buttons belonged to my Mother-in-law's mom. I strung them on twine to make a garland.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. Come back soon and don't forget to leave me a comment! Merry Christmas.
