I knew I wanted to showcase them this year, but I wasn't sure just how. I put them on this shelf, but it looked a little bare. So, I added in the vintage Egg Nog cartons (scored on ebay with a gift certificate from PayPal - so FREE), but it still needed a pop...some color. So, I started adding things.
A Shiny Brite encrusted wreath to start.
Then some mercury glass ornaments, some mercury glass picks and some mercury glass beaded garland.
Then some Shiny Brite ornaments in the window panes.
And a vintage glittered tree stuck in a vintage Egg Nog cup.
I stuck a couple vintage sequined and jeweled stocking on the top and it was done.
How's THAT for some pop and color?
I keep telling myself that it is a bit too much and a bit too gaudy.
But, I love it so much.
It makes me happy!
