Heres the colander display - inspired by upyourattic!
Its time to start the holiday baking...
Some sweet little paper angels - and pink too!!
And, a grate display under the tree...presents coming soon.
The little pinecone tree is glittered and glued on a glass candlestick. 
Love old ironstone and white pottery - and collections make great holiday displays with just a little holiday added...

You gave me the perfect idea of how to display my vintage ornaments! I was lucky I found an old colander and I had some colorful beads that made the arrangement complete.
Got lots of compliments on my arrangement...thanks to YOU.

I also have a collection of clocks. You have yours displayed nicely so I may get another idea from you. Keep up your great work and Happy New Year. Posted: 5:00 pm on December 29th

Looking forward to a new year of junking adventures (and maybe add a few more Christmas decorations to my collection along the way...).

LOL (hmmm...maybe a new business for me..."Deck the Halls & More, Inc."!! OK, I haven't even had coffee yet this morning! :)

Patti - this inspiration thing just kind of bounces back and forth - off all of us, doesn't it? Don't ya just love it??

Lani, the branch is cool, isn't it?? Last year I hung ornaments on it, but thought I'd leave it bare this time around...(that's about the only thing I didn't touch!!!) ha ha

Love you all & Merry Christmas


My "colander" is marked - baking on Friday!!! :) Posted: 8:57 am on December 18th

upyourattic writes: Great job ~ now you've inspired me to do a display with all of my vintage clocks and another with my collection of white pottery...I was just going to leave all of that alone, but... And I thought, also, that I was done with the decorations for this year! Thanks for sharing and have a Merry Christmas!

Now go mark your "colander" to make some cookies! Haha.

shabbychick writes: Thanks for the nice comments - I just have way too much fun with all my Christmas "toys" - and there are even a couple boxes I didn't even open (that's just not right, is it??).

I love the little pink angels too - they have such peaceful little faces!

After Christmas, will have to find something else to put in the colander - maybe some pinecones...
