More Christmas Vignettes

December 09, 2012
I bought a cream and gold colored Santa at the consignment shop for $5 this fall.

I have filled my off white wood box with lights, a lantern, candles, a bleached bottle brush tree, lights, and ornaments.

I hung crocheted snowflakes on the washstand towel bar.

Here is the box at night.

This is my creamy white vintage suitcase with a vignette from last year that I repeated again this year as it was one of my favorites.

I snapped a photo of this simple vignette with my burlap covered footstool, a McCoy jardiniere, a prayer plant and a couple snowflake picks.

  2. Well, dear Organized Clutter Queen Sweetie,
    I love Santas with a passion and I love this white and golden beauty.
    Now, I would have never thought to fill a vintage suitcase with pretties...this looks amazing.
    I have a wicker vintage suitcase that I am thinking of trying something cute in for NEXT Christmas. Thanks for the inspiration. I better pin yours so I won't forget.....:)

  3.'ve got me thinking. I've got 3 suitcases filled with toys, but they would be fun to use for Christmas decorating. Good idea! And I'm really loving those candles you've got everywhere. Do the batteries last long?

  4. Thanks for the great ideas, I have some old pop boxes and think I can do this! lol Easy decorating right?

  5. Total score on the Santa! I have got to get me a suitcase for display! I love the picks in the plant too! It all looks beautiful to me! My stuff? still in the boxes!

  6. Love how you use boxes and suit cases..........adorable.

  7. I have a box I need to paint white and use my white and gold Santa in a vignette. Once again you inspire me! I love the JOY in your other's one of my favorite words and I always try to find a new JOY to add to my decorations each Christmas. You are my inspiration for the "Inspiration~Copy Cat' party at Debbiedos tomorrow. Hugs, Linda
