Its Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas!

Turkeys down,stockings hung!I couldn't wait,I had to begin decorating today ( oh yes, its a process!).I always decorate the mantel 1st,there might be a little tweaking( I'm not so sure about the leopard Santa hat Venus is sporting,she just might look X-masy enough already) but this is just about the final product. Can you tell which corner the tree goes in? Its already up,tee-hee ,this is the before pic.
Those little red reindeer make my heart beat exotic rhythms,do any of you remember those at your grandparents ? The stockings are all vintage (I loves me some vintage stockings!),they are thrifted or from estate sales ,and in terms of ownership they begin with The Big Daddy and on down the line to our kitty, Elvis( yes he is the king).I do tend to be quite anal about stockings hanging the same way. My heart and soul wishes for the sentiment on the stocking hangers,please dear Lord, let their be peace on earth.


So much more to come soon!

Looking like Christmas in Texas! It is kind of hilarious to see the bright sun streaming through the window and no snow. Not that we're getting much snow here in Ontario (global warming is truly in effect, be scared).

That skirt below is to die for! and I have that sweater too.

Isn't exciting puttin up the first decorations?? I did my mantle first...and ummm...I'm afraid to have you see the pic, lol. The stockings are not facing the same way!! YIKES. I'm hurrying to change. :)

Love your vintage fashion show, such a cool idea to feature pics, even better idea to lovingly wear your vintage items passed on down from your loved ones. I wish I had some frocks to wear from my Grandma's younger days. She looked like a roaring 20's starlet in the pictures of her in her 20's and 30's. Still was beautiful even when she passed.

Someone had those reindeer, but they weren't red. Green, maybe? And who had them? Gee, maybe they're mine, buried in the boxes of thrift store ornaments my grandma keeps sending over... I should look!
