One of the many things I love about the Holiday season is decorating. Not only decorating my own home but also
taking delight in other people's homes and their beautiful decor.
This year I decided to incorporate some vintage children's items so my granddaughter could enjoy them.
The vintage teddy bear was obtained about 12 years ago in an antique shop. I love the character on his face.
I've kept him in storage for years but now he is finally out and ready to mingle with a certain 16 month old girl.
You can see him seated here on a vintage rocking chair waiting for Santa to arrive :)

I love the way it looks in black and white too.
The stockings hanging from the mantle were made by my mother out of burlap and fabric.
We love them and will treasure them as they will become family heirlooms.
I love getting inspired by looking at the many Christmas decor ideas found every where. I especially liked reading this book
Do you see the gorgeous photographs inside the book? It is chock full of ideas plus sooo many recipes!!
I am in love with it!
I keep it on my side table in our living room.
Everyone loves to read this book.
It is Southern Living's Christmas All Through the South
Wouldn't this make a wonderful gift?
The good folks at Southern Living sent me this fantastic book to review and I highly recommend it.
You won't be able to put it down OR put it away for that matter.
I can't decide which recipe I want to try first.
So what special things do you include in your holiday decor?
Want to get inspired?
