My favorite rusty gears on my blogging desk got a purdy green friend to help ring in the festive season.
The front entry was decked out with real birdhouses from the great outdoors. I think this is the first time EVER I was glad my door was a shade of cranberry...
Even the horse gate coat hook area got prettied up with some colourful wooden beaded garland.
This old outdoor table was the perfect patina to play well with the season! The clay pots were filled with real greens sitting in small cups of water to keep their look... green. :)
Remembering those no longer with us? An old ladder was decked out with Christmas cards and glittered up with some of my moms necklaces from her jewelry box.
No stockings? A grain sack, burlap sand bag and lacy pillow case create three no sew unique... baglings of course!
This coke crate was not only festive, but also useful on top of the kitchen island area. Way fun!
Beethoven gets cozy with my little mini Whoville tree, that is actually a fake garland twisted about and bent over, sitting inside a galvanized bucket. One oversized ornament appearing to pull the tree over completes the fun.
A few of my favorite wooden things are layered on a windowsill. Even the colour of the lettering cooperated with the season...
Need uses for all those antique hangers hanging about? Why, use them to hang stuff of course. How about a wreath?
One of my fav collectibles is the Christmas case of Coke, mint condition. I still remember buying it, wondering how long Id end up keeping a new case of coke. The date on the case is 1999. Gettin there...
Strung up cranberries made a really neat garland that looks great against antiques. But beware.. in about 2 weeks theyre cranraisins... hmmm...
A crazy train idea was to use this sawhorse as a makeshift temporary side table. Its proving to be VERY handy! Its such a nice size for a display and your java. Felt up the feet and slide it where need be across your hardwood floors.

Christmas just wouldn't have been Christmas without throwing abit of festive bling around all my favorite junk things. :)

The best part about decorating with junk? Come New Years, there just isn't that much to take down!

12 pics not enough? My blog link below will take you to the complete reveal.

Merry Christmas, friends! May your season make you smile like mine has. :)

And the wooden hanger wreath display, how simple is that..(should be a no-brainer, using a hanger, right?) thanks for sharing your lovely home with us. Posted: 9:17 am on December 20th
