More Christmas Deer

The countdown to Christmas continues. Only 5 more days! Are you ready?

I'M NOT!!!!

Still no tree, still no lights. And at this point, not sure if I will even bother. I've really been a Christmas procrastinator this year.

But as I said, my house is decorated inside (except for the tree part).

I seem to be obsessed with deer and bottle brush trees this year. Here is another little vignette.

Placed cinnamon sticks in my ironstone pitcher. Made a snow scene in my apothecary jar. Added a snowflake ornie to my seltzer bottle and added a glittery star. Oh, and a glittery "JOY".

I normally fill my apothecary jar with jingle bells. But I've seen so many cute little snow scenes, that I decided to make some in all my apothecary jars this year. Add some fake snow, some bottle brush trees and a deer. Instant wintery snow scene. And the best part is that I can leave it this way all winter long.

I added some of my "new to me" eBay vintage deer to my cloche. Don't they have the most gorgeous eyes?

Don't you just love this print? I got it from Very Merry Vintage Style. I knew when I first spied it that I wanted to base my Christmas decorating around deer.

Hopefully I will share with you a couple of more vignettes before Christmas. still have my nativity and my cardboard glitter house village to share. I just need to take photos. And make some final adjustments.

I need about another 30 days to get ready for Christmas. Yikes!

  4. I've seen so many vignettes but yours are the ones that appeal to me. I think it's because they are soft and gentle, not cluttered nor "in your face." They are warm and comforting. Thanks for sharing.

    Merry Christmas
