A Collectible Christmas

Cut out little discs from Bingo cards are adorable little ornaments or decoration.  Make them larger and they look great as gift tags too.   
Bringing neutral colored items together in my olive green living room makes for perfect traditional Christmas decor. 
The pretty white grate was a freebie to me and so were the Bingo cards. 
The white pottery on this display was purchased anywhere between $.50 and $3 each at garage sales and thrift stores.  I havent had to resort to Ebay yet to add to my collection. 
This shelving unit was picked straight from the curb.  It looks like an old sorter of some type. 
These vintage silvery balls are the perfect neutral for any room in my house.  Purchased for $3 for 72 of them.  Not bad. 
In a couple weeks fresh greenery will be added along with cranberries to really liven up this display!
Pretty linen-type box that housed seashells I purchased at a barn sale.  I loved the box as much as I did the shells.

You fellow junkers don't need me to tell you how inexpensive it is to decorate with your finds, but I think it's rather fun! 

Keep on junking!

My mom collects the green and we only buy pieces less than $10 - it makes it more fun that way because they can be priced so high. I love what you've done to give it a monochromatic feel.

CottageElements writes: Candy, you are truely a girl after my own heart. All the white, with a hint of pale aqua (silver sage) is my front room. Very soothing color! I have a ton of vintage ornaments, too, with a lot of them being silver. I also have a white pottery collection and white ironstone collection. Maybe we're some who related? LOL! Great idea, too, with the bingo cards. Love it all!

I collect pottery like this of all different colors, but I haven't been so lucky to stay off of ebay :( Posted: 8:40 pm on November 20th

Love it all. The bingo card punched out, the white pottery, the silver balls, the neutrals. Love, love, love it. I adore the vitage aqua ornament in your last photo. I am using white/silver/clear and aquas this year on a white tree I'm making sort of in mind with how Lani made hers. Only I'm using a vintage thick drapery pool for my base. Have to paint a wall before I can put the tree up, otherwise it would be up and going already too. Posted: 2:56 pm on November 20th
