A Little Bit of Christmas

I thought I would share a little bit of the touches of Christmas at my house.  My decor is more on the simple side compared to so many beautiful blogs that have lovely displays on the mantle and other homey spots.  I love that style.  I simply don't have time to make it happen.  So we go for a more simple touch and hope that it is still beautiful.


I purchased this cup and saucer at an estate sale.  And the vintage ornament is from my childhood.  Actually, I don't know how old it is, perhaps older than me.  I don't even remember where the star came from.  It was not new.  I'm sure it came from a thrift store.  It just seemed a shame for the cups to be empty.  So each one got an ornament or two.


I purchased these salt and pepper shakers the first Christmas I was married.  Oh!  How I hate saying they are now considered vintage!  When my daughter was very young, she used to play with them all month.  They would go on adventures around the house, especially on the branches of the Christmas tree. 
Santa bunny 

I found this cast stone bunny at a thrift store a few years ago.  I just fell in love with his goofy expression.  But he was painted horribly and someone had hot glued cotton all over his beard and the white parts of his hat and coat.  Then there was spanish moss hot glued to the wreath and basket.  Ugh!  It took a long time to get him cleaned up.  Then I repainted him.  Now, he is one of my favorites.

This chair came from the estate sale where I got the cups and saucers.  I believe it is handmade.  And the bunny is actually a tree ornament.  I got him at a garage sale several years ago.  I have never seen another like him.  I believe he is papier mache.  But, actually, I'm not sure.  

So, there is a little walk through of some of my favorite things.  I'll show you a little more later.

OH DEAR, I am amazed at your art! First of all, I want to thank you for coming to leave a comment last night. And like you, I adore all the beautiful holiday home displays in Blogland, but neither do I have the money or time to make my world transform into a winter wonderland!

I adore your bunnies, your décor and vision because it comes from YOU. We make the home happen.

I must check out your art! DID YOU DRAW THE HEADER?? Anita

WOW! I just came from your gallery! Good heavens, YOU ARE GOOD! I have an Etsy shop and have done well over the last year. But nowhere do I come close to your style! You remind me a bit of my dear and wonderful friend, VIOLET SKILES. She paints and sketches dogs and children and she too is phenomenal. She is at CREATE BEAUTY. Check her out from my sidebar!

Much love! Anita
