It's an Old Tyme holiday

Christmas is by far my favorite holiday.  
For so many reasons.  My world becomes a little more beautiful (with the lights and festive holiday decor every where) and there's a magical sense of peace in the air.  All the everyday worries and hardships seem temporarily suspended in a collective joy that touches the kid in all of us.  

I also LOVE the hunt for that perfect gift for those on my 'nice' list....almost as much as I love creating for the holidays!

This year I decided to go simple in style and created the OLD TYME Collection for Reverie Creations.  It celebrates a time when everyday items found around the home were used to create beautiful and timeless holiday decor.  A style I personally love because of the history behind the vintage items I often use when creating.

Vintage Shabby "JOY" Paper Cones
These sturdy 12" vintage paper cones spell out the word 'Joy' when strung together, but they're also hand stamped with numbers so they can be displayed year round.  Created using lots of vintage:  paper, trims and jewelry.  They'll look lovely displayed with pine and berries OR filled with trinkets and goodies as a gift.

Shabby Chic "Noel" Glass Ball Ornaments
Covered in vintage sheet music (or book paper) with glittered tops, these glass ball ornaments are perfect for tree trimming.  Purchase a few and display in a bowl.

Shabby Vintage Paper Medallion Ornament
And what tree doesn't need a paper medallion ornament?  Do you notice the distressed bottle cap and safety pin?  You'll also find plenty of vintage!

Shabby Vintage Paper 19" Tussie
I love the look of old paper rolled up with goodies tucked inside.  This old time tussie is perfect for gift giving or as a centerpiece to your holiday table.

Vintage Muslin/Burlap Stocking Ornaments
No Christmas would be complete without a stocking.  These were created simply out of coffee stained muslin and an old coffee sack with vintage buttons and trim.  Small enough to hang on your tree but large enough to stuff with little surprises!

Visit Reverie Creations on Etsy for the complete OLD TYME Collection and for so many unique, handmade holiday items as well as gift-giving ideas.  It's never too early to think Christmas!

Have a wonderful day, my friends!
