Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying the day and getting excited about the start of a brand new year! I am taking a break from working on my last Christmas post from 2017 to wish you all a Happy New Year’s Eve! Here is a “timeless New Year’s Eve vignette” I just came up with this morning to celebrate the special occasion.
I think it is quite sweet, and it was really easy to put together. Although most everything in the vignette actually is old and does show the patina of time, there is just something about classic and vintage decor is timeless to me!
This year my wonderful vintage junkin’ Mother surprised me with these adorable vintage kissing angels for Christmas. It really was a suprise, because these sweeties are just the kinds of collectibles she loves too. She is always putting others first! I know it was hard for her not to hoard these junkin’ finds! This morning I was just “shopping the house” for something quick to use for a New Year’s Eve vignette and I got the idea to use the figures in a cloche display.
I already had a winter vignette inside this rusty old “cloche” (a junkin’ find, I really have no idea what it is…but it’s rusty, crusty, chippy, white goodness and I love it!) using antlers, chippy salvaged tub claw feet, an old mirror and distressed shabby candlestick. I just added the angels, a couple of ivory bottle brush trees, some pieces of my sheet music paper chain and a vintage watch clock face. I hung one large mercury glass bulb from the top (kissing ball, disco ball or New Year’s Eve ball depending on your imagination) and this little vignette came together like magic!
The clock is not pointing to midnight, but that is okay…true love is timeless!
I simply love this sweet vignette and since it has such a wintry look I will keep it out for at least another week or so. All the chippy, shabby shades of white here are making me a bit excited for some fresh decor looks and home projects in 2018! After experimenting with some color the past few years, I have plans to add even more white and neutral tones back into my home with chippy salvage, more distressed furniture pieces, ironstone, and any other bits of white I can get my hands on. I know that color is predicted to be big in 2018, but I always follow my heart when it comes to decorating. This next year will be about embracing all the things I love about life!
I hope all of you have a safe and Happy New Year’s Eve full of beauty, love, and happiness! My God bless you richly in the upcoming year!
