A gang of vintage Santas on my dining room table...
My bottle collection - topped off with some vintage bulbs (Ive collected so many bulbs, I have to put them all over the place!).
A vintage bottle brush tree, a cute NO-EL couple, and an antique metal wind-up bird (unfortunately he doesnt work anymore...but hes still very cool).
Sue - heres the goblet of white buttons - holding the family together!!
A stamp pad wheel - holding little bottles and salt shakers - with tiny pinecones and bits of evergreen...too cute!

Just started my Christmas decorating - I'm a little behind this year, but I love "playing" with all this stuff.  And, with all the great ideas from everyone here - my mind is spinning!!!  ( a blonde thing...I guess!)

Anyway, here are a few shots - wish me luck!!!

shabbychick writes: Thanks so much for your nice comments! I thought I better get some things started (and junkcollector, you're right - all these ideas...I'll probably be re-doing things till New Year's!!).

Wait till you see my "conservatory" - it's a collection of vintage carolers and other assorted stuff - and I think I do hear Gene Autry singing in the distance...! LOL

Bridimurphy - about the little Santa holding the manger scene (at one time it was actually a snow globe - but, no water left now - just snow - I thought it was unusual too).

Gotta get busy...decorating the bathroom tonite!!

Love the vintage vignettes very much! I have been looking for an old stamp holder with no success and may have to get one off ebay someday.

Thanks for sharing your displays, Kathy.
