REDNESDAY-The Last Of The Christmas Reds...I Think!
Still decorating, even though Christmas is only a few days away! It's OK though, because most of the outside stuff stays up until about the middle of January.
Since I wasn't going to be doing my usual, over-the-top Christmas decorating this year, due to the new kitten, I decided to just decorate with some of the things that I've found throughout the year, which had been waiting in the holding area (picnic basket), ready to be packed up with all of the other decorations after Christmas.
I did find some nice things this year at estate sales.
And the flea market.
It was a pretty good year for kneehugger elves!
While I was out antiquing over the weekend, several booths had their Christmas stuff 50% off. So these NOEL candleholders came home with me.
And so did this sweet little birdie, along with the tiniest bottle brush trees I've ever seen!
Although I'm not Swedish, I thought this tablecloth was so charming, and it's small enough that it will fit nicely on the coffee table.
There was no way I was leaving this angel behind either!
Here is my teeny tiny patriotic Christmas collection. The only reason I have one at all is thanks to Deb , for sending me that amazing vintage card, and to Renee for that ornament she made, using vintage materials. Thanks gals!
Back outside, my cherry bucket holds a spectacularly realistic poinsettia!
And on a sled that I found curbside, are my daughter's skates from when she was a little girl. Funny story about those skates. I decided a few years ago that it would be fun to spraypaint the skates silver, and then sprinkle glitter on them. Those skates did not dry for three years! Honestly, last year was the first time that they weren't tacky to the touch!
