When I moved into my historic Victorian house 15 years ago, I put up a 9 foot Christmas tree in the 11 foot tall room, and began my antique ornament collection in earnest. For fourteen years I have spent hours and hours unwrapping and hanging hundreds and hundreds of figural, indented and hand painted vintage and antique ornaments.
As you can see this year I was ready for a change.
I am on the verge of redecorating my kitchen, which has been filled with bird cages, so I decided to utilize them all one last time before dragging them off to the antique mall.
Most of them were white already ... The rest converted. I filled them with mercury glass and other spherical ornaments.
Then filled the tree with second hand store and dollar store finds.
I found several of these medallions already made, as shown below, and just had to add the. Great deer graphic that I found at Graphics Fairy..
... And that is my tree for this year, Mr. P said he loved it because it went up so fast ... I have to admit, I liked that part too!,
