Hi, guys!  Sorry for the absence.  Just returned from a fun-filled few days with family in Minnesota.  Yes, it was snowing and freezing!  (FYI, Florida makes you delicate.)  

Here are before and after photos of a little shed/barn in Elk River, MN - I took the
one on the left in September and the one on the right last week.  Yikes!







Oh, dear - only 6 days 'til Christmas.  Let's make a cup of tea,
settle down, and look at some beautiful ideas for incorporating
vintage and antique collectibles into Christmas decorating.

What a darling idea - using vintage
holiday aprons for window treatments.



In place of a traditional mirror, consider setting a rusted
garden gate on the mantel then add a bow and wreath.


A small antique china cabinet is the perfect
display area for Christmas collectibles.



Love this idea - tarnished silver plated serving pieces arranged in
the shape of a wreath, hung above a distressed headboard/footboard. 










































Incorporate your collectibles into your
holiday decorating scheme this year.
It makes the season even more special!
