TOUCHES OF CHRISTMAS

I have significantly cut down on my Christmas decor in my new small apartment, but I love decorating for the holidays so I still wanted it to be festive.

I wanted to bring back decorations from my past, like some of the Santas I made 25 years ago,

my Christmas village,


and vintage toys under a Norfolk pine tree that I will be keeping as a houseplant after the holidays are over.

I love the playfulness of these old favorites

and the wonderful traditional Christmas colors.

I will be driving down to Atlanta on Friday to spend Christmas with my family. Can't wait.

  8. To me, RED is Christmas! The bright reds this time of year are what I love most.. and green of course too! You've done up your space wonderfully with the vintage decorations, Santas and your sweet village. Twinkling lights always add to it all too... love them. Enjoy your family this Christmas.. and then come home to your cozy nest! Marilyn
