Yes, this is a semi-old post but it's Christmas themed and pretty awesome.. Rhoda is having a vignette party and well, I can't miss a party. So this is whatchya gettin'. :)
So during my "I didn't win the contest pity-party" the other night, I decided to knock it off, chin up and keep myself busy instead of being miss gloomy pants who isn't getting a new basement. Boo..
But, Thank YOU! ladies who voted and sent me such nice emails and comments. You, my friends rock.Right, table scapes.. So I started on these centerpieces and if you were with me on facebook that night, I just started posting them with my phone. :) I figured I could take some blog-quality photos and go ahead and show ya'll (Oh yes, yes I did just go there.)
Everything that I used was something I already had. There was no buying of anything new since it was a spur of the moment anger project. ;) Kidding. Kind of. Oh! And, I'm well aware that the chargers are coming off the table. If I were really going to set the stage I'd add the leaf to the table but can I tell you a secret? I'm super lazy and it was about three feet to far away from me to go grab it and snap it on. :)
The runners? My scarves. Yup, and why not? They're pretty and the brown one is way too long to wear.
The blue and white stripped one I was actually wearing before I put it together. :) I needed something to go with the theme, and stripes do it for me.
Can you guess what this one was?
12 Days of Christmas! It's actually my favorite even though it doesn't make much sense to anyone unless I explain it.
Maids a'Milking? Ball Jars scream milk to me, no?
Well kind of.
Five Gold rings? Well I don't have that but I do have 5 gold ornaments. :)
Anyways, it's kind of crazy, kind of cute and I like it.
This one didn't exactly fit the bill, too many of the same colors going on. I don't know what I was doing here, but you can see it anyway. I really wanted to use the vintage milk carrier but wouldn't you know nothing fits in it. Of course.
So these are just a little bit o' fun, and I figured they might inspire someone to decorate for Christmas even if it is a week before Thanksgiving. You have my stamp of approval. ;)
