A Touch of Whimsical for Christmas

December 07, 2012

During the Summer we went to Canton Flea Market and I found 

just what I had been looking for a Dr. Pepper soda crate. I was

looking for a new vignette for our family room mantle and this soda 

crate is going to be used to help me step out of my comfort zone.




For years I have always created a vignette using my collection of 

snowmen on our family room mantel, however this year I am 

looking for whimsical.  


I also became a fan of burlap this year too, (I was slow jumping on 

the burlap bandwagon) so I added some burlap to the mantle.  It 

softens the vignette, adds interest and texture.  







Love, love, bottle brushes-I have had these for several years and I 

gave them a touch of whimsical with a little pink spray paint. 






I have about 20 vintage Christmas ornaments from the 50's that hung

I our Christmas tree as a child and I really wanted to use them in this

vignette, but they were too large.  So I found these smaller 

Christmas Ornaments from Hobby Lobby and I think they are 

giving me the look that I wanted.  I just used a little tape, to hold the 

ornaments in place. 

I love my new vignette for this Christmas Season!
