I stumbled upon a great blogger named Joan who writes anything goes here . Joan is featuring Vintage Christmas Mondays and if you like old Christmas things, you will love her blog and the others you will find through it.
This is my German feather tree trimmed in vintage ornaments with old Christmas boxes, a few old Santas and bottle brush trees piled around the bottom. The tree is not antique, although I have bought and sold some antique ones over the years. I bought this one new when we moved here 14 years ago. We lived in a tiny farmhouse, and given we had just moved to this sweet town of German heritage, I thought it fitting to have a small German feather tree for our little house, to celebrate our first Christmas here.
This photo is from last year. Sometimes I repeat what I did the year before with my collections, and some years I create a new mix. I haven't figured out what I want to do this year. I love seeing what others are doing for inspiration, though, and maybe this week's blog reading will get me going!
