I sure am enjoying my days leading up to Christmas and have really relaxed and taken some time off. Today I’m sharing one more spot in my house that I decorated for Christmas and it’s my small tabletop tree loaded with Shiny Brites. I’ve shared these many times with you before and at least 1/2 of these vintage ornaments are from my own childhood tree that my mom passed on to me. I will keep them in the family and one day pass them on to Lauren. I love these old vintage Shiny Brites and they give me such a nostalgic feeling when I look at them.
I’m sharing just one spot in my house today that’s decorated for Christmas, my downstairs den area. This is where we watch TV and I have this cozy seating area beside the built-in bookcases that is perfect for showcasing my tabletop tree in an urn.
My Shiny Brite collection goes so great in this space with the colorful drapery fabric I have in here. I’ve always loved all the bright colors from our childhood tree growing up and this takes me back there.
I can distinctly remember seeing these ornaments hanging on our tree and how mesmerized I was watching them glow under those big fat colored bulbs we baby boomers grew up with. We didn’t have white lights back then, but colored bulbs was what we all used. I loved those colors and still do!
Those faceted bulbs and the striped ones are from my childhood collection and they are so thin and fragile now. I hope to preserve them for years to come.
Under the tree, I placed it in a brass tray and filled it with more vintage ornaments. I picked up this little JOY sign along the way, probably at Target.
On a side table in here, I added a white bottlebrush tree I picked up a few years ago along with a clam shell filled with aqua ornaments. These add a fun and festive touch to the room!
I love this Silent Night hand painted sign from Scripted Simplicity, but I’m not sure she still has these. It’s so cute and perfect for the season!
And here’s a pretty shot of the tree at night. With my windows in this space now, it’s fun to see this cute tree shining in the windows when I drive home at night. I hope my neighbors enjoy it too.
