We Need a Little Christmas...& Winner!

Right this very minute......
Sharing some Christmas decorating.
Our 1950's aluminum Christmas tree.

This waxy plastic Santa ornament is an oldie.
Sweet little angel.

Can never have too many angels at Christmas.
The color wheel is original and still works!
Found this cute handmade vintage tree skirt a couple years ago.

Confession~I was jealous of all the beautiful wreaths you've all been
making, but didn't have nearly enough Shiny Brites.  
 I found this 25 cent wreath at a yard sale, only decorated with a few fabric leaves. 
I glued some glitter on a few of the leaves, liked it, so I fired up the hot glue gun!
I added some vintage plant picks I'd been saving, and rummaged
through my Christmas stash of goodies for the rest.
It was fun, fast to make, and most of all......I love it! 
The felt stockings were hung on the "mid-century metal wall art" with care! :)
 The NOEL mitten stocking is mine from my childhood and is very special to me.
Doyle's is in the middle~of course, and Mr. Retro's is the Santa.
This wonderful quilted Christmas piece purchased locally at a
craft sale.  The lady who made it was such a sweetie, who said
she has to give up quilting due to arthritis.  What a shame!  :(
 The vintage plate is made by Salem China, called "Christmas Eve".

A few little elf friends have joined my crafted elf.

What you've been waiting for.....
the winner drawn for the Poinsettia tablecloth is.....
Dorothy of Hens Rule blog!
Congratulations Dorothy!!!  I'll be contacting you.  
(I got techie this time and used Random.Org, not
nearly as much fun as using Doyle to choose the winner.)
Thank you to everyone who left a comment for a chance to win.
Wish I had a gift for all of you, because we all need a little Christmas...
Are you singing yet?
Haul out the holly..Put up the tree before my spirit falls again...
Fill up the stocking... I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now.  
For we need a little Christmas, right this very minute,
candles in the windows, carols at the spinet...
Yes, we need a little Christmas now!
Have a terrific week!

  13. Congratulations to Dorothy! Your wreath is beautiful and I love the tree skirt!

  14. I love the wreath you made. Very beautiful!!

  15. What a neat tinsel tree with the light wheel. I think it would be so pretty at night. I adore your vintage tablecloths. Dorothy is a lucky girl!

  16. Oh, that color wheel brings back such memories! I loved those silver trees when I was a kid. Congrats to Dorothy!

  17. What wonderful decorations! Love your tinsel tree!

  18. I thinking your wreath is beautiful. As much as I love the ornaments wreaths, my heart sinks a little when I see the pretty, old ones glued to make them. I made one for Valentine's Day a few years back, but I used mostly plain balls.

  19. Such beautiful Christmas decorations!! I love your tree! I have an aluminum one too, mine isn't old though. Love your sweet tree skirt you have on it!! Congratulations to Dorothy!! I'm sure she'll love it!! :) xo Holly

  20. Congrats to Dorothy. I love your vintage decorations. I found an old plastic wreath/maybe candle ring that used pink and green decorations. I thought perhaps they were just red that had faded, but after looking at it for awhile, I'm convinced it really was originally pink. Merry Christmas.
