Just A Tad Bit Of Christmas

Today I'm going to share two vignettes here at COASTAL CHARM...nothing special...just thought
 you might want to know how it's looking here on the Alabama gulf coast this holiday season...
so take a look around and let me know whatcha think!


Hope all of y'all have a wonderful holiday weekend and thanks so much for coming by,
Linda

                                                    
                                  
                             This is what my large dough bowl looks like this holiday season!

                            Some silver vintage ornaments...these came from my sweet MIL.
                                                         A tad bit of coastal flair!

                                         My tiny birdie tree...located on the kitchen table.
        Found these cuties in a neat little antique shop in Auburn...cut the ugly gold ribbon off and
                                    replaced  it with some twine...for only $1.00...I thought these were a
                                                             real NIFTY THRIFTY find!
                                    Used more twine around the tree...loved how it looks!
                   Another NIFTY THRIFTY find with this berry garland...found it at a garage sale last
                          summer  for only 50 cents! If you like decorating with thrifty items, then be
                                                         sure to come by and join me at my
                                                          NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS

Linda I love your thrifty decorating. The twine looks great on the tree. Very cute. The dough bowl is wonderful. Thanks for joining Junkin Finds Friday.

I love the use of your twine!! I decided to use kraft paper to wrap gifts this year and that was a disaster. The paper is too heavy and thick so I used my weight in tape but I did use a bit of twine instead of ribbon. That's was the only part of the wrapping that I loved.

Deb said...

I love the twine on the tree too. Great idea and looks sweet with the burlap bag on the root ball.

The little tree is so adorable. I love the dough bowl. I too am leaving some of my star fish out. They are sort of like snowflakes for us southern girls :)

Gracie's Cottage said...

Looks great! (No more starfish can be left around here, unless they are up HIGH - thanks to one old dog that pulled one out of a bowl and ate it last week...)

Beautiful!! I love your tree with the birds and your lantern with the coastal touch is so perfect!!

Laurie said...

I really like your little birdie tree -- I'm resisting the temptation to have more than one tree, even though I must admit I recently put up a tiny tinsel tree but I'm in denial about it...

You proved that you don't have to spend a fortune for a great looking home.I love the birds.

Debra@Common Ground said...

Hi Linda, I'm so glad you came to the party!! That dough bowl is just amazing! Love how you've added the starfish to the mix. Really lets us know your "coastal". Love it. And those "birdie" ornaments are really cute, love the tree,
xo,
Debra
