fall holidays home decor Junkin' and Thriftin'

Workin’ Wednesday: Booth Sprucin’

Today was a good day to do some rearranging of the booth at Uniques & Antiques antique mall where my sister Sharon and I share a booth.

I had gone through all my Christmas things in preparation for a garage sale last week so I had a few things pulled to put in the booth.  Today seemed like a good day to add and subtract some items.

Here are some photos of the results of my booth sprucing.

 I have a small Christmas tree that I use to display hanging items any season of the year, but finally it’s time to decorate it for Christmas.  I hung several vintage Santa mugs as well as two of my rag garlands, some felt owls Sharon made, and a few other items. I added that vintage elf light to watch over everything!


 Next to the tree I hung a huge vintage wall tapestry like my grandmother used to have on her living room wall. Actually I think the picture on it was different but I love the majestic elk or deer it depicts.

 Here is another view of the tapestry.  The colors are very vivid. I made the banner which spans across it, saying “Vintage.”  There is also a vintage metal stool which had a torn vinyl cushion which I recovered in burlap and added a rag skirt.  The stool spins.

I also added a tiny green suitcase and filled it with doilies and old Christmas decorating magazines, along with some small Christmas toy items.

 Why, that’s a very interesting-looking book.  Wonder who wrote it?  Oh!  It’s me! Yours truly!  I’m the author! And you could have your very own copy.  Just leave me a comment and I will get back with you!

 One day I was just sittin’ and thinkin’ and noticed that I had left this little train case sitting on my little red stool.  It occurred to me that I could make a little patriotic side table by affixing the case to the table and stamping stars on the case.  Plus it has storage room inside!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you are interested in any of these items, we are located in Uniques & Antiques in Mineola, Texas.
Tell Melissa I sent you!
