I Believe in Santa {Vignette}


My house is looking like a giant bin full of Christmas decor vomited all over it…LoL, but I am slowly getting some decor up and out and feeling grateful for the luxury of having two hands. {I had a crock pot accident the other day and have 10 stitches in my right hand, in case you were curious ;)} I did manage to put together, this little Santa Vignette, one and 1/4 handed, and it’s making me feel all festive and nostalgic…I hope it does the same for you!:)


I used only things I had, except for the dollar store candy canes.  I left up the mirrors from my Autumn Vignette, oh and the little wood box too.  I stuck pinecones atop my thrift store candle sticks, and was happy to finally display my garage sale scale…$2!!  I love it.


I sat my little vintage Santa on the scale  and added a little ‘letters to Santa” tube and my wintery mailbox.  My little holly runner grounds it all and adds some more whimsy and color.  Of course there has to be a wreath in there somewhere and I love how it pops off of my little cabinet.  And for the pictures I had to use my cute new bag from Bag Full of Posies,  because I love it and it fit in so nicely.  I blogged all about it yesterday in case you missed it…also she is have an awesome giveaway right now, FYI. ;)

My candy canes are hanging from the lamp in sweet little gift cones.  The BELIEVE sign was a gift from my MIL and sums up the overall theme of the vignette.  We all need to believe in something and the sweet childlike feeling of Christmas is a great reminder.


I like how it all turned out…it’s simple but I hope gives of a feel of Christmas spirit and childhood magical wonder.  Remember that feeling?  I love seeing it through my girls and wish I could bottle it up!
