Deck The Halls


handmade-holiday-128-hollyI took time out today to decorate the house a bit. No time for making anything handmade, but I thought I would share some decorations with you today.

The lovely Kathy of Kathy's Cottage
is hosting Handmade Holidays
on her blog today.

handmade-holiday-128-gooseWell, it all started with a bit of Vintage ribbon...


handmade-holiday-128-gooseThen decorating my Baker's rack was easy.


handmade-holiday-128-gooseI decided to make it a bit more Vintage this Christmas.


handmade-holiday-128-gooseChocolate Santas made from Vintage chocolate molds. Just kidding, but I love those faux chocolate Santas and they are 0 calories!


handmade-holiday-128-gooseSome Christmas books,


handmade-holiday-128-gooseand some favorite Vintage touches.




handmade-holiday-128-gooseBefore you knew it, I was finished decorating my baker's rack for Christmas.



handmade-holiday-128-gooseThe bottom of the rack is for the birds...

handmade-holiday-128-gooseNow we just have to decorate the tree.


handmade-holiday-128-symbolThe song for this post is Deck The Halls.


handmade-holiday-128-hollyWishing you a Merry Tuesday.

Karen, it looks so pretty. I love the bakers rack and that wallpaper back behind it! It's sweet the way you hung those ornaments. Neat idea.

Oh how very festive your baker's rack is! Those faux chocolate Santas are adorable. I've seen (and purchased) lots of the faux choc bunnies, but I've never seen the Santas before. Would you mind letting me know where to find them?!?!
