Today, I thought I would share the vignette in my front entrance. There are a lot of family treasures found in this vignette that we enjoy each year and a new piece or two.
This striped cloth on the buffet is actually a petticoat that my husband's grandmother made to go with a skirt for a Valentine's dance. My MIL offered it to me so that my oldest daughter could wear it for dressup...but oh no, it is too much of a treasure for that...so it graduated to Christmas decor. I love the ruffles on it.
I found this little baby Jesus in our local antique store hidden on a bottom shelf in a corner booth...so I took him home and made him mine. The little pink ball was one of my grandmother's ornaments and I have loved it for many years.
Do you see the Christmas tree topper behind Santa? Also, one of my Grandmother's. The lights don't work in it anymore and I cannot figure out how to replace them so it joined my basket of goodies.
The silver bell garland was found at the Christmas store in Estes Park this summer.
I think it is fun and love it's vintage look.
The old bucket was found at my husband's grandparents farm in western Oklahoma as well as the milk can to the right of the buffet.
