These are some deer my family gave to me through out the years, notice it is a doe with her baby fawn. The lights in the back are white lights inside an amber colored antique jug I purchased at our local auction house. This is one of my most favorite areas in the house, the antique table that belonged to my Nana with adirondak trees, the vase of dried flowers are from my Great Aunt Idas funeral from early Novemeber with a snowflake made from antique sheet music.
Here is a vintage little elf, I purchased these several years ago from a yard sale, I love to yard sale. One never knows what they may find. Actually there were two of these, the other one has a green hat. I love them. This little elf is sitting on the back of the couch.
Here's a brown feather tree my daughter gave to me one holiday season. Notice the very vintage tins on the table. They are so cute with fox and other outdoor animals. I have had these cans for several years, again I found at some yard sale.
Here is another snowflake made from sheet music, I found this on http://cherishedvintage.blogspot.com/ I just love these things. I have given them to several of our friends in place of a holiday greeting card. Everyone loved them. Thanks cherishedvintage.
The jar here is one of my favorite items in the house. My best friend and I took a road trip to the southern end of the State (vermont that is). She (stacey) likes to go into old abandoned houses. We found two of these antique jugs in an old barn. This is what I did with mine. It is full of snow with pinecones, birch tree branches, accorns and such with a tiny strands of lights. It is so beautiful at night with the different colors of the lights shining in the snow. It sits on an antique scale, another find from the local auction, I love the auction house!
Happy Holidays to everyone!
