A Little Christmas Decor

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. 
I  am normally a pretty organized person, especially when it comes
to preparing for the holidays.  By now our home would have been
decorated, all the gifts bought, wrapped and shipped.  The Christmas
dinner would be planned and most items already purchased. 
Well, not this year!
I have a ton of Christmas decorations stored in the attic at our Virginia home.  Here at
dad’s I was pretty much starting from scratch and needed to decorate on a budget.


 I added bottle brush trees from the Dollar Tree to Dad’s vintage truck.



The little tree was $2.00 at a thrift store and I added burlap around the
base.  Many of the ornaments came from GW or Dollar Tree.
(the picture looks crooked but actually the wall juts out)

Dad has a collection of vintage pocket watches that were added to the tree.

Several days after the tree was decorated I found a few boxes of vintage ball
ornaments in the garage.  Dad said he hadn’t seen them in over thirty years!
I guess I need to clean and organize his garage next.

We added the vintage turquoise ornaments to the mantle.

Free greens added to a large copper pot.

This year we may not have the most decorated home or the prettiest decorations.

 What we do have is a house full of love.

Happy Holidays,

  1. And Love is the single most important thing! You have a tree and you did wonderful with it! I didn't know the dollar tree had bottle brushes, I only just got interested in them after being brainwashed on blogland by them lol, but there are some beauties to do make with them! Simplicity frees us up to do the more important things, like love.

  2. I think your decorations are beautiful and special since you did them for your sweet Dad! I'm sure he loves having you there and decorating his home. I love the pocket watches you added to the tree.

  15. Love all the creative decorative touches that you added to Christmas at your daddy's house. Everything looks great but the addition of the watches is my favorite thing that you did. The little trees in the vintage truck is great too!
