Like you, I scout Pinterest for ideas. I pin tons of pretty pictures and save a boat load of recipes. Most photos (and recipes) I'll never really use, but every once in awhile, a photo speaks to me.
I saved this photo for awhile. I just love everything about it....especially the black case (box) with the red and greens.
Then....I had this idea.....
I have this old typewriter case. Not too bad on the inside, but it needed some help.
I have a bunch of this paper that looks like old-time newsprint.
I cut it to fit and glued it to inside the lid.
I filled it with greens and berries, and set a framed antique Christmas post card inside. I made the red fabric Poinsettias years ago....have a bunch of them, and I think they work very nicely.
Colonial Star, from my Vintage Treasures book, done in green and red instead of blue and white.
It was a perfect fit as I didn't want to bring any light prints into this mix.
I don't decorate my entire dining room anymore, but think this gives a festive feel to the room. Something pretty to look at when anyone passes through.
Happy decorating and hoping you all stay safe and healthy! I think we see the light at the end of this dreadful tunnel!!
Be well.....and keep creating!
