~VINTAGE VICTORIA CHRISTMAS BOOKS~
I had a little bit of down time over the weekend and decided to hunt down my vintage Victoria Christmas (Magazine) Books and retrieve them from their hiding place! Even though I continue to hear the familiar sound of hammering (bang! bang! BANG!) from our on-going master bath remodel (YES! It's STILL underway!) I was able to steal away a few moments and gather some inspiration while thumbing through all five of my now aging books...
~ORIGINALLY PURCHASED AT TJ MAXX for $3.99~
One of the things I loved most about the ORIGINAL Victoria Magazine was their timeless approach to decorating. Long before Rachel and the Shabby Chic (TM) craze, the editors and decorators at Victoria successfully merged the old with the new... I've been a huge fan of it ever since!
How about you?
~BEAUTIFUL WHITES CAN BE FOUND IN EVERY ISSUE~
~HUNG BY THE CHIMNEY WITH CARE~
~CREATING WITH ANTIQUE BUTTONS~
~WRAPPING WITH OLD BOOKS AND AGING BUTTONS~
You didn't think this idea was something new, did you?
~EMBELLISHED WITH VINTAGE KEYS~
How about this one? Done before...and still breathtaking!
Timeless, classy and forever lovely!
~BEAUTIFUL HAT BOX DRESSED TO THE NINES~
~BERIBBONED DOOR WREATH~
~FILLED WITH WHITE PRETTIES~
This old china cabinet reminds me of the one I have minus the scrolly accents!
~CHAIRS WITH WHITE LINEN FLOUNCES~
Earlier this year I bragged about making new chair skirts for my dining room chairs. I knew this idea had been around for a long time...just wondering what TOOK ME SO LONG to get with the program...
Bah! I'm always running late for the party...
~OLD CREAMWARE and VINTAGE MITTENS~
~THE DELIGHTS OF SOFT WHITE~
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas!
What will you be using for inspiration this year for your Christmas and Holiday decorating?
As you can tell I'm not looking too far from home...
Blessings for a lovely Monday!
Love to you...
