Simplistic Season

“The simplest things are often the truest.” -Richard Bach

 This holiday season will not be loud and outrageous, but quiet and reflective.

This holiday season will not be hurried and exhausting, but just plain enjoyable. 

This holiday season will not be expensive and gaudy, but handmade and vintage filled.

 I collect vintage ornaments. My Grandmother S actually started it all by sharing hers with me. Below are some of my smaller ones displayed in a vintage dish given to me by my Grandmother R. And of course, the books are vintage. 

Vintage ornaments displayed in an old birdcage.

More vintage ornaments in a pretty silver bowl and tray.

Thanks for viewing my vintage faves!
I am joining up at Vintage Thingies Thursday where everyone enjoys sharing!

Nothing is better than a Christmas that fills the senses, the spirit, and the soul. Wishing you a simplistic season!

Living it up at Lakewood,

Simply lovely Cindy. Love the cage. I have already planned to use my old silver plate in my decor - since it's my latest obsession.

What a lovely thought- a simple and sweet season! Love your ornaments, both because of the color and the vintage!

Oh my you have some pretty vintage ornaments too and we both love silver I see!!

That basket that you commented on is something that I found when we were at a missions conference in South Dakota 2 years ago- I just loved the look of it and the price was right too!

They sort of look like giant balls of candy when they are displayed like that.

The birdcage is so sweet, & the little balls remind me of some my Mum had.

They were great!!

I love ALL the ways you have displayed your ornaments. Makes me remember the little ornaments we bought our first Christmas after we got married. I think maybe I'll dig them out and use them in my decorations now that you reminded me!!!

It was nice seeing some of the old ornaments again. We used them for years, but no longer have them. I guess you just cannot keep everything.

I never would have thought to combine ornaments and birdcages, but it works so well. Love it. Thank you for visiting junkblossoms. I hope you'll visit often. Merry Christmas!

I had an old Bike I painted white and put in my yard. I changed it for the seasons and loved it. I used it for a 2 or 3 years and it is now in my backyard. I had baskets in the back on each side of the tire. For Christmas it was filled with red points and a Santa hat hung on the handlebars. I got a lot of comments on it In the spring it was decorated with sunflowers and a big brim hat decorated with ribbons a flowers hung from the handlebars.....Pauline
