Vintage Wire Lampshade With Antique Style Cards And Crystals

Welcome back dear friends....
Today I am sharing a fun new look for my vintage floor lamp...
and a peek at more of the holiday decor!

Here is how the lamp and this corner looked this fall.
I loved seeing the architecture.... but it needed something more.
A lot more actually!
This is my wire shade that I have been saving for years to use.
It use to be covered in brown fabric, but I removed all of that...
and had a blank canvas to play with.
I added the reds for winter... and have new pillows in burlaps.
After Christmas I can use these in the living room.
But I am enjoying the red for now.
I found the crystals at Hobby Lobby and bought all they had.
Christmas is a great time to find little accents for all year for the home.
These were 3 for $1.99 and then 50% off... so I have all of these for $3!
 These tags I ordered online, but the scrapbooking section has tons of similar ones to choose from.
I have a bit of a bird theme going in my decor... and this little one is just darling.
 Love the details on these... I will use them all year.
 I added a burlap flower and vintage earring as it's nest.
A gold charger and vintage crystal plate add more sparkle.
 More vintage style tags are tucked in to the vignettes for Christmas.
 Little touches like these are such a simple idea.
  For only a few dollars, you can add so much charm to your home.
The little burlap flower was only $1.50 on sale.
To me the holidays are not about spending a fortune.
But about using the thing you already love...

And adding special little bits and pieces that can be used for years to come.

Happy Holidays and God Bless!
