Creating Christmas Vignettes with junk/stuff around the house. First vignette (above) is a mixture of vintage four-sided graters on an EP Copper Silver Plate platter, battery candles that flicker (who knew!), three gold painted pine cones, a few great old books and my poinsettia. Love the warm ambience.
Next Junk Christmas Vignette - Start with some junk finds, mix with recycled faux greenery, bits and pieces of vintage decorations, old strings of Christmas lights, some imagination and put it all together in an old red painted carpenters tool box. I hung my Christmas wreath above.
Close up of funnels, hand scythe and an aluminum jello mould.

Next vignette is a vintage wash plunger sans wooden post mixed with some pretty, somewhat vintage, broken jewelry and an old Christmas corsage with a very worn red and rusted tool box tin tray in the background.
The cookie cutter tree decorations are inspired by Carlene of Organized Clutter. I dug out my collection of red handled very vintage cookie cutters, hung them with vintage red Rick Rack. Delightful.
Iron Railroad spikes used for a flower frog (support) in little red wooden box + prickly holly.
I think this post could go on and on mixing junk and Christmas. It has been fun and I love joining in with others who are creating Christmas Junk.
