I love Christmas!
It makes me so happy to give my homes their Christmas makeovers!
Since this year, we’re in our new house,
it’s like FUN, times 100!
So far I’ve tackled our front porch.
What’s going on inside the house, you ask?
Sadly, not too much, really — until just a few days ago.
This year, I started with our powder room.
HA! Doesn’t everyone start with the bathrooms + branch out from there?
Anyway, back to said powder room —
its everyday “look” features both this darling vintage shelf, from etsy . . .
. . . + this sweet vintage photo (circa mid 50’s)
of a 3 or 4-year-old ME,
with our pet Beagle, Scamp.
So. Check this out:
It’s an ornament that I made,
using an old photo (circa early 60’s) of my sister, Lisa.
OMiGosh, look at the way she was gazing adoringly at Santa!
I liked it so much that I made another one to send to her.
I think I also gave one to my other sister, Kathy.
I CRS (Can’t Remember Stuff), so I’ll ask her later today.
While I was already traveling down Christmas Memory Lane . . .
. . . I included this pretty glass bell ornament in my vignette.
It reminds me of one that our mom had.
Finally, those plaid circles have a bit of a back story, too.
They’re displayed in a trio of vintage metal embroidery hoops
that I’ve saved for a few years.
I bought the plaid flannel a few weeks ago.
Here’s one, sewn as a rustic Christmas pillows for my biz,
RedBird Vintage Home.
Stay tuned for more Christmas photos,
just as soon as I complete a few more vignettes!
