Deck the Halls


(I want to thank Debra at Common Ground, Nicki at The Vintage Farmhouse and Jody at Rooted in Thyme for featuring this post!)
Hello, everyone!  I'm now in the full Christmas spirit, and have 'decked my hall' with some holiday cheer!  There is a small space in our front hallway between our stairs and the office, and this is now one of my favorite decorated areas.


\

  I brought in an old chippy door from the shop, and leaned it against the wall. (We sold 3 others, but I kept this one for myself! :) I then gathered together some tarnished silver, which I love, and added some worn, red ball ornaments for a pop of color. I thought it would be fun to use the webbing as a 'pedestal.'  Next I hung a  wreath, and topped the door with a vintage flash card that I got in Columbus last weekend.  The little shoe is a 'joke' between my hubby and me.  He sometimes hides it around the house for me with money in it!


The old barrels and the chair were already in this space-I just took down the printers tray and sign that were hanging on the wall, and changed the top of the barrel.  To see how it looked before the decorations, go here.


This pillow is one of my favorites that my friend Carol made.


So, here is the whole vignette...simple, but it reflects me!


 (I had this flash card up before I bought the 'new' one...)


 I'll be back with more decorated areas soon. Have a fantastic day!

  5. I. LOVE. THIS!!! Using the jute as a pedestal is a great idea. Who doesn't love a chippy door with glass panes? And then the little shoe on top adds such a fun detail. Susan, you are good!

  16. I love how rustic and vintage it looks! It has some of that industrial farmhouse feel to it (which I love). The red looks great against the warm tones of the barrel and the old silver trophies. I love those old flash cards. Want some!

  36. Thanks for following - and commenting - on www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com. Whilst delighted to welcome you to the world of Coldham Cuddlies, the Black Gorilla is now longer part of the family - having found a Forever Home! Would be grateful if I could be reminded exactly which link enabled us to get together, so that I can update the link! I seem to remember I "discovered" linky parties at about that time, and since then have used other, more pertinent links! Mind you, Black Gorilla has been responsible for lots of new friends and followers, so am not ungrateful! Happy Holidays to one and all - and you, especially. Isobel
