Christmas Vignettes

I have noticed that if I wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas I feel as if I am behind.  But if I start before Thanksgiving I feel that it is too early.  So I’m left with a 24 hour window the day after Thanksgiving (when I’m still doing dishes)that the timing feels right.  But first I have to look at all the blogs to get inspiration.  Oh well, I have managed to decorate a few areas since Thanksgiving and I thought I would share some of my vignettes.

I was outside clipping holly and doing a few other chores and this little scene just happened.

 

Today it is in the mid-50s here so it’s a good day to do some outside decorating.

 

These reindeer were brass when I found them at a thrift store.  I spray painted them silver but I would love them either way.  They are some of my favorite decorations to bring out.

 

Another of my vintage finds was this little caroling Santa.  I am sure he was part of a set but somehow he became separated.  I gave him a setting with the tree and snow (of kosher salt).

 

Something about these miniature trees is magical to me.  Every year I add a few more to my stash.

 

I’m still working on a few areas of the house.  But it’s starting to feel like Christmas around here.
