Our Christmas House this year


This week me and Wayne spent most of our time going through bins, getting rid of items ( still) and decorating.  We did things a bit different this year….we used a white pre lit 4 foot tree that I had bought at Wal-Mart a few years ago for 90% off.  It is just getting to be too much to decorate a full size tree…


I used a repro vintage tablecloth for the skirt on top of a small red table.  Here is how it looks partially decorated…


I still have some ornies and shadowboxes to put on it….but you get the idea, I used all Shiney Brites, new and some of my folks….





This is a good shot with a couple of my vintage blow molds…just have to have them by the tree!


Here are a few other pics… Bubble Lights!!!!!


I made the little ceramic tree for my folks back in 1977…





This little guy is a music box…


and a shadow box I got from Meri….


Here is the kitchen….




Meri also gave me these cute vintage Santa S&P….


My Putz houses in my Master Bedroom.

I have a bit of tweaking to do…but this is a really good start!

Oh, and here is some of the outside…..roses and Christmas lights! :)


My friend Cheri and me got together to make her an ornament wreath…


and I made her a GIANT ceramic tree for Christmas this year…you can’t tell but this is about 18 inches or so….


I had them double the light holes….it really shines!

Oh and by the way….

J.C. Penny’s has Shiney Brites ornaments, bubble light candeliers , garlands and tree toppers…


LOVE them all!  The bubble light candelier in my photo above was from years ago from Shiney Bright and Penny’s catalog.  They don’t make them with the red base anymore.

Have a GREAT week everyone and thanks for stopping by! :)

PERFECTION! I'd cut back on trees but then I'd have 500 ornaments with no where to go! Ho Ho Ho!

Where shall I start? So many fun things to look at! I have a little white tree like that too - it's in our sunroom/dining room. Good to know about the shiny brights at penneys. I am lovin' Penney's these days! Love the ceramic tree you made too.

Merry Christmas, Sandy!
What a wonderful treat to find your kind comment. We both came upon the same treasure...and, aren't you glad? I just love the little rocking horse and one day I will pass it on to one of my grandchildren.
Your home is just bursting with Christmas color and spirit. It's nice that your husband joins in on the fun, too.
I love all your handmade treasures. The ceramics, Santas, the amazing Christmas wreath...Oh, I love everything!
Blessings and thanks so much for stopping by,
Carolynn xoxo

Your house looks like my house! I love the white tree. I saw the new Shiny Brites the other day but have enough of the true vintage ones to hold me over for a while. It's nice to know that I can still get them if I need to. My favorite thing are the bubble lights with the red base. I am on the hunt now!

Happy Holidays & Rednesday,


Sarah said...

Merry Christmas!

Your Christmas home looks wonderful. I love the white daugter has a white one too! The display with the ceramic tree and bubble lights is wonderful, and the shadow box from Meri makes me drool.
Thanks for the tip about JCP having Shiny daughter would love those as a Christmas gift!
