Spiced up for the holidays

I love how pretty the colors look against the metal.

I was browsing around Old Town Antiques last night when I came across this very old vintage spice rack.  For five dollars I just HAD to have it.  I really only buy pieces that I can use over and over but refresh the look with each season.  For the holidays it was screaming, "Put vintage ornaments on me!"  So I pulled out my grandmothers ornaments from her first Christmas as a married woman, which makes them over 55 years old!  The details they have are charming.  So simple, yet so elegant.  That seems to be the theme of the holidays around my house this year.   I hope you enjoy it!

I rolled up patterned paper to make cones and put candies and little toy favors in them for the holes. I love this idea for Christmas! Out of the garage it comes! Posted: 6:40 pm on December 5th
