December 13th…

I started collecting vintage Santa’s a few years ago, and this little one is probably my favorite. He’s just so tiny and perfect in every way. This church is also one of my favorite Christmas finds I have ever picked up. I came across it at a thrift store last year, and immediately put it in our house to stare at every day.

Who doesn’t love a little white feathered wreath? This perfect little striped cashmere scarf that I picked up for $1 has been used in so many of my holiday decorations over the years. They both look so perfect on the doors at Joel’s studio. This is a perfect example of less is more (sometimes).

These wood pieces are left over from our reclaimed wood pergolas that we built for our inventory, and I just love them so much. I couldn’t just scrap them and although they are not very functional, they look perfect when grouped together in 3’s and put in a cool corner of a room. They were originally beams from a barn in Michigan that was built in 1968…how could I ever throw something like these away? Add a little mercury glass, some greenery, and of course a vintage chair with some French ticking, and you’ve got yourself the perfect little vignette.
