Viva's Winter Wonderland
Carol gave me the really great idea of transforming this antique drying rack into a Christmas tree.
Any kind of faux greenery that comes in has to be "fluffed", as we like to say.
Here's Dianne fluffing away before her fingers started bleeding!
Little elves everywhere!
This is an old horse shoe that I decorated.... there is a tiny little blue bird button on the right, and the saying is "and the third was filled with kisses...".
A very busy picture of the "tree".
Very pretty mercury bells lavished on the vanity.
A silver tray full of tiny ornaments.
We've been collecting old crystal salt and pepper shakers and have decorated them with vintage items, wired and hung them. So charming.
Paper lanterns, snowflakes, penguins and white sumac (on the ceiling) really set a mood.
A very sweet tree already lit and ready to go. Hey, check out the new wallpaper! I found a bunch of vintage National Geographic Maps and wallpapered them behind our restaraunt ware.
Old rollerskates and gingham ribbon... How did we ever skate in these? My sister and I zoomed up and down the alley behind our house at great speeds! Remeber hitting the little pebbles? Over and out!
While they are a little hard to see, there are wings on the candles. So cute, they have little spikes that you can just push into any candle. Love, love the sparkly birds.
Old cherry pails that we put chalkboard paint onto.
Paperwhites and more chalkboard paint on a gorgeous old galvanized planter.
Penguin in charge of the Lepi soap.
These penguins are in charge of Sarahs cupcakes.... how about those hats?
Here we go!!!! Hang on!
Any of you driving by noticed we papered the windows.... some were worried we were shutting down! Nope, just hoping to surprise!
