Deck the Halls in VINTAGE style

Beautiful Morning!
The season is upon us ....  it's time to deck the halls...

Vintage style for me*
Come on in...
 a glimpse and some ideas starting off the Holiday's at our home...

I have my favorite pink ladder...
 {I found it years ago just like this, very old with rope for bracing... it was this beautiful enamel pink old paint}
that I use around the house to reach high doorways to hang lighted garlands and wreaths for the holidays.


Vintage luggage..
Here is my Dec. 25th piece!
I made tags with the date of specific holidays.
Storing my delicate decorations for different holidays in them.


Vintage lighting like these french sconces
 looks even prettier with a sparkly snowflake*



Vintage glass peanut butter jar filled with fresh roses from my garden...
pretty fragrance and simply hangs off an old french window 
by a vintage monogrammed initial *P* ribbon
adding a touch of holiday red!

A great gift idea: a vintage container filled with fresh flowers would be a beautiful gift anyone would love!


Fresh greens I clipped from the trees in yard, mixed with my garden roses in a vintage container for the door.


Have you started making Christmas plans???

My Design tip:
Christmas is the time to express {decorate} your home in a way that is comfortable and memorable.
"Using vintage is key to a unique style".

Hope you had fun at my house this morning....
Get a cup of cocoa
 stay in your jamies...
Then... shop for some unique holiday pieces for your home and start Decking the halls!
 Get a jump start on that list and you will truly surprise them with something unique 
from Second Shout Out shops!

Thank you for visiting...

Have fun!

xo,
me
