I started going rustic vintage, and ended up with more of a rustic country corner. I brought this vintage Sears radio inside from our garage. (My husband uses it in the summer to listen to Twins baseball all the time.) On top is a zinc jar cover with a grubby flameless votive candle and a country shoe ornament.
Next a couple white glittery stars and a rusty little reproduction lantern.
A real vintage oil lamp, another flameless candle in a Jello mold, and a third glittery star are grouped with the primitive Santa.
A little artificial tree in a crock anchors the vignette.
Cookie cutters, crocheted snowflakes, rag balls and other country ornaments decorate the tree.
I have an old Minnesota license plate in white and green from my era hanging on the wall behind the tree. I made the little felt tree mittens ages ago.
I also made this little star Santa and many more like him. I even sold some at a couple craft sales.
The bottom of the corner shelves have crocks and crockery bowls, my experiment with the thrifted colander and Christmas lights. I saw some pendant lights made from colanders on Pinterest, and the star pattern coming out of the holes was really cool. Battery operated Christmas lights just don't create that much light.
It wasn't a total failure just nothing spectacular.
More Christmas decorating to come.
