A Little Christmas Decor

This year for Christmas, I decided to keep it simple since we would be leaving before the holiday to spend it with our married children. New this year, I added a tiny vintage car collection, but otherwise I’ve kept everything a bit traditional.

There were years I had 3 or 4 big trees set up in the house, but those have found their way to our children’s homes. I kept this weird skinny tree for our empty nester house as it is the perfect size for our smaller place. It seems happy amongst the peely chippy salvage goodness.

Even the bust of David got a little holiday cheer this year.

We have a strong tradition of Christmas stockings filled with mystery gifts we make a game out of guessing. Not gonna lie, the competition gets pretty intense the years we get to all be together, but it’s always fun! These will all hang by the fireplace until they make their way into my carryon luggage to make the trip with me.

I always have to add a little bit of vintage Christmas bling with ornaments and silver trees.

And a kissing ball in the foyer, just in case!

Gifts are wrapped simply with a bit of the outdoors and I’m ready for Christmas.

How do you decorate for Christmas? Does it include vintage decor or sentimental items? We have so many memories of Christmas past that I can’t help but remember each time I unpack the boxes of decorations. 

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and happy holiday season, Jill
