christmas decorations...so far

i put up some of my christmas decorations over the weekend...i kept it pretty simple, and am not quite pleased with everything quite yet. i plan to go buy martha stewart's christmas magazine for some inspiration in the next few days. i need something new! (maybe i needed that white christmas tree? hm...)

anyway, here is a little taste of what i've done so far:

little white tree from target placed on my bamboo console (from target, this year. it was only 2.50!). i had those little tiny ornaments from last year, and i kept it to only orange and silver ornaments:
also, one of my favorite things i have for christmas decor is my collection of vintage christmas cards...i tucked a few into this drawing, and also into my mirror above my TV.
here is the tree. it looks pretty much the same as last year. i need something new! i love my red vintage tree, but i think i just keep thinking about a white one! orrrr, i kind of want a regular old christmas tree. i don't know...i love all my vintage ornaments, so i don't want to change up the ornament scene. i think the white one is just calling my name...

here is where my vintage santa and reindeer collections are right now. i will probably move them. i just don't like a lot of knick knacks sitting around, jumbled together, creating clutter, so i kind of put them all to the side:
you can't really see very well in this photo (it's super dark in this little corner of the house, plus it's a dreary day), but those 3 little plastic reindeer are soooo cute! one of them is missing his bell around his neck, so i think that i am going to paint him a red nose and let him be rudolph. i need to do that today! i'm not really sure how i started collecting vintage deer, but some how it happened, and now i have 5 of them. i love old stuff!


here are all my santy clauses. i love them too, but am still not quite happy with my arrangement. i'm sure i'll change it up here soon :)

i am thinking of doing some kind of garland with string, ribbon, etc...it just hasn't quiiiiiiite hit me what i should do. stay tuned! (i'm sure you are all on the edges of your seats)
