Vintage Containers

gnomes



Mixing a little old with the new adds interest in any holiday decorating. Antique loving cups filled with bottle brush Christmas trees sit on top of an old plateau mirror. Little mischievous vintage Santas add a pop of red and whimsy to the vignette. Just mix it all up and have fun decorating!

I love little Christmas gnomes, or Nessemen, as they are called in Denmark. The hang out in the most unexpected places around our house at this time of year.

So funny, Becky, because I was just visiting another blogging friend who also had a table arrangement. I thought I was entering your blog, but wound up there somehow and said to myself...hmmm...this doesn't look anything like what Becky would ordinarily do! Now I feel so much better seeing what you do. It's perfect.

The antique loving cups are the perfect containers for your bottle brush trees. I learned something too as I thought the loving cups were old trophies :)
I really like how you have mixed the old with the new. A charming vignette!
