Christmas Vignettes around Chateau Gahan

A friend gave me two Hendrick's gin bottles because he thought they were pretty. And indeed they are. I spray painted one blue and am using it as a Christmas vase on top of a Johnston Brothers plate.
A bird nest gets a little holiday touch.
The cuckoo clock needed lights and a wreath. Afterall, it is a house.
A pink bottle brush tree fits into our girly girl house.
A pair of ice skates on a chair. Won't be using 'em but they sure look cute.
Put up a little village this year. I wanted a bit of magical in the mix.


Even the rubber dear head in my bathroom had to get in on the decorating action.
A serving bowl full of vintage Christmas cards. As fun to look through as an old Sears Christmas catalog.
The little ceramic bird under the cloche has a little tree in his heart-shaped bird bath.
And the lifeguard chair sports a tree as well!

Dawn, with next to no holiday cheer at our temporary apartment, I want to come get cozy at your place even more than usual. Looks great. :)

I don't know what was my favorite vignette, the vintage cards or the decorated antlers!
