I like to collect things I love when I find them, regardless of what time of year it is, because I know I'll use them for something or other. It helps that I have a place to keep them out of sight until I need them and a good idea of what I'll be able to use them for in the future lest I end up with a locker full of junk. I used mostly vintage items to create this scene such as the village pieces, the deer, and the Reader's Digest books and added a few bits found at a local craft store. Before I could set it all up, though, I had to repaint that pink locker! It looked great in pink but I've been ready for a change ever since we got our patterned vintage couch. Two coats of primer and one coat of a light mint later and it feels like a whole new room in here.
Do you decorate the same way every Christmas or do you change things up a bit?
