I totally plastered my walls with loads of vintage Shiny Brite ornament boxes and smothered my tree in silvery tinsel. It’s the brightest, shiniest, happiest Christmas this house has ever seen!
I hung my very own vintage stockings by the chimney with care. (When you’re thirty, I’m pretty sure your handmade childhood stocking classifies as ‘vintage’.)
Now, for the real retro action… ding!
I set the tree ablaze with tons of terrific colored lights. Big colored bulbs and even a few strands of vintage bubble lights. (You know, these guys.)
I’ve always been a ‘white light girl’. I don’t know what came over me this year. I guess I was feeling brave and just wanted something colorful and over the top, something a little outside of my comfort zone. I’ve been collecting Shiny Brite ornaments at flea markets and yard sales and wanted a way to debut them in style! I had no idea how many I had until I started unpacking them all. I love them! (And I may be just a little bit addicted.)
So I went big. I went bold. And I think I ended up with the cheeriest living room ever! It’s totally normal to keep it up all year, right?
