  1. Thanks sharing your adorable home! I’m also an ornament junkie and love to display them in various vintage containers around the house. I bought my first reproduction dough bowl recently and looking forward to styling it for Christmas, either on my dining room table or raised bar area. As I get older, I’m wanting to keep Christmas decorating simple because it’s so much work to get it out and put it away. These ideas are so simple, easy, and pretty! Merry Christmas!?

    1. Thank you so much for visiting Vicki. I agree with you, it is so much easier to fill a dough bowl or vintage container. I’m all about simple these days.
