Christmas Vignettes

I love doing vignettes for Christmas!  In fact, I think my little vignettes look better than the overall picture of my holiday decorating.   Here is a little bit of what I have going on this year in our new place.

This little red tote I found at an antique mart with my friend Sue a couple of weeks ago is my favorite this year.

I got lucky that it was already red!  You could go so many ways with decorating one of these, but I decided to keep it pretty basic with greenery.  I also tried to highlight some smaller pieces by putting them under cloches this year.

These pieces I’ve had for over 20 years and they were given to me by hubby.  I added this fake snow stuff for them to stand on.

My new Mary Engelbreit book!  Signed by Mary!  This will be wonderful to take out each year now and when my granddaughter is old enough, I will enjoy reading it to her at Christmas time.

My bottlebrush trees are the newest additions to my vignette groupings this year.  I love the way they turned out and would really like to make more of these.

This Baker Santa and his tree are in the kitchen and sit on the counter corner.

I couldn’t resist taking this picture after seeing some sun actually shining through the other morning.

I’ve got my brown and white transferware teacups and saucers {from Nancy at Nancy’s Daily Dish} and put one of my bleached bottlebrush trees in the top cup.

Hi Kathy, I love vignettes too and that's about all I do anymore since I haven't put up a tree for several years.

Your vignettes are lovely and I do love those bottlebrush trees.

Hi Kathy,
I love your vingettes, they are all so pretty.
I agree that doing vingettes is as much fun as the big tree decorating and all. Love the way your bottle brush trees came out.

Hi Kathy, it is all so pretty, as usual, but my favorite is the little red box. Love it, that was a great find. I'm really into boxes right now, any kind, any shape or size.

Sue said...

Love that little red tote! Glad you got that size vs. the other one we saw. All your vignettes look wonderful- you've been busy. I have to clean up all of the messes I've made getting this house "Christmas-fied." Maybe we can meet up and have some coffee and sweets one morning before Christmas? Hopefully, I'll be cleaned up by then. Ha Ha... If the sun comes out tomorrow, I can start taking pictures. Why can't I get organized?! ~ Sue
