Wreaths & Vintage Ornaments

















I love these simple wreaths and how elegant they look. So lovely tied with a simple ribbon. I like how they are used on the cabinet and on the windows inside the home. I have hung wreaths on the outside of my windows, but never thought of hanging them inside. I might have to try this. And how beautiful hung inside a frame! I have seen them on the backs of chairs and even on the four corners of the table legs. That is really sweet. How do you decorate with wreaths?

A favorite collection of mine are my vintage ornaments. I still have mine in storage so I couldn't photograph them for this post. I will try and see if I can get to them and take some pics. I love the way they are so fragile and their beautiful colors. I like to put them on their own special tree usually. I also like how they look clustered in a glass urn. So pretty. I am putting some of my silver ones on bare branches that I have in a vase in my bedroom. I will try and take a pic of that too. Any favorite ornaments you all have out there?

I hope you are all surviving the Christmas rush. I am a little behind this year. Trying not to get too stressed for we know that isn't the reason for this season. I am trying to focus on the True meaning and not go overboard. I wish you all well and Happy Shopping:)
