They say more is more when decorating for Christmas but I love the small, unexpected touches scattered throughout the house.
So light a pine scented candle, switch on the fairy lights and enjoy some quick and easy vintage Christmas decorations using old finds in unexpected ways (and if you missed my full Christmas home tour you can see it here).
When I was a kid, this gingerbread house cookie jar sat on to of our refrigerator. I had to pull up a chair, climb up then reach inside for my Oreo or Chips Ahoy fix.
Everything looks better under a cloche or propped on books – even a thrift store snowman candle.
Garden clippings look like a million bucks in an old cooler …
a blue mason jar …
or even an old lantern.
I love this old squirrel nutcracker (you can find affiliate new versions here) feasting on vintage Christmas bulbs.
My favorite thing to do is add a little touch of greenery or garland to an every day item like my brass elephant.
It doesn’t get easier than filling a tray with vintage Shiny Brites.
Here’s to having a very vintage Christmas.
