The Holiday that Thrift Decorated


Almost each and every Christmas decoration I own and use is thrifted.




 I keep my tree decorations in thrifted vintage train cases. Ohh how I love these and I'm really glad I found a use for them. Plus if the kids drop one while carrying it upstairs 99% of the time things are unbroken.




  This one they don't get to carry, too many vintage ornaments, I don't even hang them on the tree with kids, a puppy and a kitten in the house.

  5. What a very clever use for those vintage suitcases. I just might have to use mine that are sitting empty for some seasonal storage. Great idea! Your decorations are lovely and displayed so nice.
    Have a Merry Christmas.♥

  6. I LOVE my vintage train trunk. I grew up with my mom having one, so I was so excited as a teenager to get my own. I even left the $3 price tag on it for pride's sake ;) Just used it to pack for the wedding!
    I love the idea of buying a bunch and using them to store the ornaments! A lot cheaper than rubbermaid bins and sturdy with a handle! Cute!
    I also love love love the cabinet in your bathroom. LOVE IT!
    Your house looks so festive! I want to come visit!
