Deck the Hall



Hi, everyone!  I thought I'd show you a few festive touches that I've added to my front hallway.
To see the 'fall' decorated version of this area, go here.

First I gathered together some of my favorite tarnished silver pieces (I've got quite a collection!) on a tray...




...then added some moss balls, feathers, pinecones...




...and a couple of little trees.




Gotta love nature's bounty!




 There's just something about all these vibrant green hues that makes me happy!




Of course I had to include a little dash of red, which I'm using a lot of this season, by winding a small piece of ribbon throughout the tray.




I just got these feathers at an antique mall, and I think they compliment the greens in this silver loving cup.




I brought in a large, heavy concrete urn from the sunroom and topped it with a  HUGE moss ball that I got at Arhaus a few years ago...




...then I hung a couple of big pinecones...




...along with a chalkboard that I 'stole' from my shop!




I just left the other shelves the same, with my banana crate and ham and bacon bin...




And that's how I 'deck my halls'!




I hope that you enjoyed seeing this little section of my hallway.

Please join Jann (Have a Daily Cup of Mrs.Olsen) in her Creating Christmas link party starting Sunday December 8th at Organized Clutter Queen.
I'll be one of her stops (featuring more of my rustic Christmas decor) starting Monday night December 9th!
Thanks for stopping by-have a great day! :)

  14. Hello my Pretty Junk Love?
    Hope all are well in this winter time.

    OMG! I am honestly have in mind to create almost like what you have here. However, of course I can't beat you adorable collections. You are one truly vintage Sweetheart.

  20. I love the greenery mixed with the silver and then the addition of the pine cones and moss balls and feathers. Such a great mix. The chalkboard hanging above it really makes it even more interesting.
