the decor of christmas past...part two

as if you haven't had enough of christmas decorating,
i come along and ask you to look at more!
and if you haven't seen part one, go here.

now i will show you a bit of my simplified decorating,
since time was short and life was uber busy. 

i liked the results of this way of decorating and only wish i'd done it years ago!
(purging the rest of the decor will be done when this stuff gets put away). 

enjoy the tour of christmas past...
fireplace mantel decor
tree on rustified milking stool
folding ruler star 
vintage choir candles &
swedish gnomes (from grandma)
vintage ornaments and a pipe cleaner candy cane
vintage milk bottle, crates, dominoes 
and vintage puzzles made by abercrombie 
tree junkified

and that completes the 2010 christmas past tour...
thanks for stopping by!

now onto 2011

up & coming projects:

lathe wall clock
mom 'n dads table & sideboard
mb office niche

stay tuned!
