Vintage holiday decor

I have recently come to realize, thanks to some blog friends, that most visitors have been unable to leave comments in the comment box for my posts in the past several weeks and I am also showing up as a no-reply commenter when I leave comments for others. This is something I was unaware of as everything shows up fine from my side. From what I have read online it might have something to do with a Google+ and Blogger conflict and I am trying to figure out the exact problem and fix the issue. This apparently is being faced by many others and if anyone has any idea how to resolve it please do let me know. In the meantime, I do hope that you will continue to visit even if you cannot leave a comment just yet. Or you could always email me at Thank you to those who pointed out the problem; I do appreciate it so very much.

If you have been following me for a while you should be familiar with my decorating style. I do like to mix things up. While I have used mostly everything I previously owned to decorate for the holidays this year, apart from the balsam Christmas tree I purchased a couple of unique vintage items from Etsy. I could not resist these three pieces.
This adorable ceramic caroler trio from Milk and Hannah, a glimpse of the stunning ornate brass trivet from Tatter and Fray, something I could use throughout the year....

.. and this gorgeous 1960's brass sleigh and reindeer from The Longacre Flea.

I am enjoying these in my living room so much and so is the rest of the family. I will share some more of the holiday décor tomorrow. I hope you will come back then.

I would love for you to leave a comment. Thank you for stopping by; please do check back often.


  1. I love that brass trivet and sleigh you scored! Just fabulous pieces! good luck with figuring out about those issues, I had the same problems too pop on and off with me too and eventually fixed it. Just google away your question and the answers shall come! good luck lisa!

  2. Love your vintage finds Lisa. For some time I've found vintage holiday decor to be much warmer and more meaningful than most of what I find in stores today. Maybe I'm just not a super huge fan of disposable and plastic and yearn for items that have lasted and will continue to do so. Happy holidays.

  3. The trivet looks so pretty! :) I love the way you used it - I hadn't thought of using it as a candle base - genius!
