Decking The Halls--REDnesday!

Amid all the boxes and bubble wrap, the halls are getting decked slowly but surely! An old Relpo Santa pitcher and vintage trays sit on the kitchen counter.

Santa and his packages S&P shakers rest beside the stove.

The Girls Of Christmas! I still need to shimmy up to the attic to get some old ornaments that go in the jars, and then I can call this area DONE!

I love the expression on the face of the girl in the middle. Either she's appalled at the amount she spent while shopping, or she's troubled by the girl in the cloche!

I love this runner that's underneath them, and I'm so glad my friend bossed me into buying it this summer!

NOEL candleholders from the flea market, along with some old Little Golden Books. As I continue to unpack everything, I realize that I need just one more thing to make my collection complete. A bigger house! I can't possibly have it all out to enjoy, so I guess I'll just have to start decorating my car!
Want to see more red things? Then head over to It's A Very Cherry World right now!

Sherrie said...

I have each one of those little golden books. They are from my childhood and I couldn't bear to ever part with them. Just like my watching Rudolph last night, my books are always there for Christmas, rather a comforting tradition.

Hi Carol! Of course you can use the image. I found it on my Dover Sampler They give ya freebies to check out. Thanks for asking.
I love your Christmas touches so far.....sigh...I haven't been able to get my things up yet. Allergies are really taking a toll. I'll be 50 on the 15th and the way I am feelin I really thought..oh no it's the...CHANGE.....Doc laughs and says no you're just moldy.
Over the past year and some tests, I have extreme reactions to mold and fungus..they call it 'Aquired Allergies' from being a floral designer and being around greenhouses for 38 years and family farms forever. I thanked him for wit and asked which is better THE CHANGE or knowing I am now officially Old, Fat, and Moldy
Hubby says he doesn't mind he's old, fat, and balding, but we still have fun.
