A teeny bit of Christmas decorating.....

A new-to-me vintage 3-D advent know, the beautiful old ones that were made in Germany? These are the type I grew up with and I've decided to start collecting a few of them. This year it will be all vintage for me! (Well, mostly vintage!)

I purchased the gorgeous doily keeper from a wonderful Etsy seller....there's a smaller one that is identical . The old fabric with the blue flowers and birds is just them both! This vignette is in a corner of my dining room.

Pretty gold glittery bird holding a very old gospel card....he greets you as you come through the front door.

I've been so lucky to find some amazing old Polish ornaments (mostly at Vintage Industry) and they look so pretty all together in a all the pinks and the wee bit of glitter that is still barely hanging on......:).

Another advent calendar from Germany....adore this one with the trees that 'stand out' in the front.

More fun Polish ornaments. They're like miniature works of art to me!
How is your Christmas decorating going? Have you started yet?

(Please excuse my less than stellar photos, it's a VERY dark and rainy morning here in Oregon and I took these with my iPhone!)
