Christmas Decorations That Make Me Smile

You know how sometimes you put on a pair of jeans that you haven't worn in a while, and when you reach into your pocket, you find money??  It may only be $1, but it's still exciting to find something valuable you had forgotten about.

That's how I felt this year when I pulled out my holiday decorations.

My mom, my aunt, and I made a trip to our favorite flea market in September, and while I was there I picked up a few vintage decorations.  I packed them away, and promptly forgot about them until we brought the Christmas bins out!  It's just like finding a dollar.  Or maybe a five.

I instantly fell in love with these place card holders.  Aren't they cute? I'm glad I saw them first...pretty sure Mom would have scooped them up had she been the first to spy them.

Also, I've been looking for bottle brush trees forever, and they've been hard to find.  Then I came across these.  I bought all 6 for $10 -- a major score.

More holiday photos to come!  :)


  1. Great finds! I especially love the bottle brush trees.

  2. I totally adore those sweet place card holders - what a charming addition to your tabletop!
