What is a deconstructed Christmas?
Well, there are some trees.
There are some lights.
There are some ornaments.
They are just not all together.
There are little vignettes of Christmas around the den.
I tend to love primitive stuff and warm rich colors.
I left out all my toolboxes and caddies and buckets and aluminum molds
And of course, the sheep stayed out.
I just threw in a vintage Christmas thing or two and piled the lights in colanders and baskets.
All in a deconstructed way!
I'll stop talking and let you enjoy the look.
You knew there would be a truck with trees.
One whole corner.
A fat, jolly, old elf.
Cookie cutters in a sieve.
Vintage reindeer frolic.
Christmas at the barn.
A star on the star.
Santa convention in the old drill box.
Caroling around the old milk bottle.
I will have to explain - that is a black cat goblin dressed as Santa with his Christmas pumpkin.
No, you are not seeing things!
I have three of the little drunken Santas.
They are my favorites.
So what was your favorite?
The greatest thing about a deconstructed Christmas is not having to drag twelve bins of Christmas stuff down from the attic.
Instead of one big tree, there are several small ones.
I used most of the things that are out all year round.
Less packing up after Christmas.
Will I deconstruct more next year?
I just might.
It was fun to create and I have enjoyed looking at all the small details.
Next I will post the deconstructed Christmas at night.
