I don’t know what it is about rustic or old pieces…I love them. Maybe it brings back childhood memories of being at my grandparents homes or my addiction to Little House on the Prairie. Pa gets me every time 🙂 I really appreciate chippy, rusty and worn items. I’m drawn to them like a magnet.
This year I decided to pull some of my favorites and use them in my Christmas decor – mainly in my dining room.
The 7 foot dining room tree has vintage mercury glass pine cones, burlap and berries for a woodsy feel.
I especially love this vignette for the memories it invokes. I purchased the milk can on my honeymoon, many moons ago, for $2.00. My new husband wasn’t quite sure what to make of my find. The farmer that sold it to me thought I was “a crazy girl”. I purchased the 1940’s Santa at an auction in North Carolina with my mother…she purchased one too. The sled I purchased at an antique store when I finally lived somewhere that had four seasons…Greensboro, North Carolina 🙂
