Christmas and a Candy Jar

It has been a busy couple of weeks for me and I haven't given my blog the attention that it needs! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I enjoyed my time off from work. The Friday after Thanksgiving was spent getting all my Christmas stuff down from the attic and I worked through the weekend to get every little Christmas treasure in it's place. So this month I will be sharing some of my Christmas decor instead of my usual thrifty finds (no junking in December for me - I usually have to much going on and there aren't any sales to go to anyway during this time of year). However I do have one last treasure to share this year. I actually got this from Mom, she has some friends that are cleaning out an old store and they let her go in and look around. She found some really great stuff and when she came home with this I just had to have it! It's a vintage Curtiss Candy Jar and will come in very handy during this time of the year.

I am thrilled to have this lovely jar, it can be used for so many things and will look fabulous in my kitchen.

The first room in my house that I decorate is my Dining Room (I don't know why but I always start there). I don't think that I can do the whole Dining Room decor in one post so I am going to start with my very festive bar cart. I found this old RC Cola cart this year at a Thrift Store. I knew when I bought it that it was going to find a new life in my home. Naturally it needed to get a Holiday makeover so I added a few vintage bits and pieces here and there.

I love using little vintage bits that I have picked up here and there over the years in my decorating and finding just the right place for them. I am really happy with how this turned out. It looks so festive!

Will be sharing more soon.

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!

  2. I am so excited to see the rest of your decorations. I posted mine yesterday all at once otherwise it would have taken all month to show them all! Our style seems to be very similar.

    Happy Holidays!

  5. Everything about this makes me smile :) I just started collecting vintage decorations a few years ago and I'm pinning this to inspire me when I don't know exactly what kinds of pieces to look for. I LOVE the little truck!

  6. Now this is just darn cute! All of your little vintage characters are so darling and I love that R.C. Cola cart! Also love the jar. I am just Lady Gaga over anything candy themed. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
