Christmas Mantel

Happy Holidays everyone.  They are coming upon us quickly.

I decided to do a little post on my mantel so I could join in the fun over at Pamela's 3rd Annual Christmas Mantel Party.




Hope if you have a fun mantel decorated for Christmas you will join in the party at Pamela's too.



Chippy and Shabby White Cottage Christmas Mantel.

Chair Bonanza

I took a drive with the hubby a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday and we went into Morris.  Morris is a cute little old fashion town with some of my favorite shops.

One shop in particular called Vintage is one of my favorites.
I seem to never be able to come out of Cassie's shop without some kind of cute vintage piece.

Well on Saturday while strolling down the street to visit the shop I saw them at the entry way.  Ohhhhhhh my heart started to beat faster.  These lovelies were calling to me.


Tooooooo sweet and a great price.  Merry Christmas to me!

I have the Mr. at one end of my table and the Mrs. at the other end.  They go great with my farmhouse chairs I already have.





Look at their lovely chippy oh so curvy legs.









They fit in so well with my other chairs and I love that I have a Mr. and Mrs. chair for the end of my table.  These chairs were a great price and just needed to come home with me.  

Another one of my fav shops is Feathered Nest.  Kim one of the talented owners of the shop is a wonderful sewing person.  She slipcovered this beautiful chair and ottoman.  Kim is the sweetest she knew it was perfect for me so she called my husband to see if he wanted to surprise me with this chair after she got it done.

It is so pretty with the patterned detail and so comfy to sit in.

It has a raised flower pattern to the material.  Just gorgeous.  I love that my husband got me this as a Christmas present from Kim at the Feathered Nest.    I am a no fufu girl and do not need diamonds or jewels for Christmas!!! Give me a cute cottage chair and I am a happy camper.

It was a chair bonanza week end.  I scored some great chairs for our Junk Chic Cottage.

Hope as we slide on into Christmas you are all doing great with the shopping, wrapping and baking.  It all goes so fast.
Enjoy.

Old vintage window up close with Joy sign and hearts cut out with old metal salvage and chandelier crystals







I added my new angel my husband got me this year for Christmas.  Cathy from Cheswick Company on Etsy makes the beautiful Angel I got last year and this is the newest addition.  She is one of a kind and hand made.  Cathy uses vintage christening gowns and this pretty little vintage sweater.  I just love her angels.  You can see the angel Grace I got from Cathy last year on the bench in the front entry picture above.


It is always so hard to get a good picture in a big window like this without an expensive camera and lens.  This angel is so sweet and looks so pretty in my snow wreath.







Old white chippy sled with vintage skates.





My little cherub arrangement I got in a shop in Geneva.  I added some of the glitter roses and believe sign to the arrangement.

The mantel looks pretty at night with the Luminary candles that flicker and glow like a real candle.  I love these candles they have a timer and they look and smell like real candles burning.




Finally my Christmas Tree.

I did a vintage garden theme with my tree this year.  Old wash tub to hold the tree.  My birdhouse was decorated with a Christmas garden theme.  I kept that theme going on my french doors that separate my office from the dining room by adding these nests and greenery.


Here is a side view of my tree with the french doors.

I love this old martin birdhouse I have had for a long time.  Got this at an estate sale years ago and the hubby mounted it on an old porch post for me.


Here is my tree lite up.  It is hard to get a good picture with all the lights but it really is pretty lite at night.  My favorite Christmas decor is my tree at night.


Here are some up close shots of the tree to give a better idea of how pretty this tree is lite up.

My tree consists of mostly angel ornaments I have collected through the years.  All white and crystal.




Here is a shot of the bottom of the tree so you can see the old wash bucket I painted white to put the tree in this year.
I love the chandelier ornaments that hang in this tree.  Give a pretty bling to my angel tree.

There you have it Junk Chic Cottage done up this year for Christmas.  I cut back on my decor this year and wanted to keep it simple and just touches of chippy, shabby Christmas throughout my house.  
Now onto baking, wrapping presents and doing random acts of kindness to help celebrate what this season is about.

Hope your decorating is going great and you are having fun getting the house decorated for the season. 
Merry Christmas.
