I found these sweet little choir boys in my mom's attic a couple of years ago. I put them out on our kitchen counter with a few vintage ornaments and a doily crocheted by my husband's grandmother.
I love the olive basket that I got this summer in Franklin, Tennessee and it looked so nice under our tree. You can read about our trip here: Franklin, Tennessee and here: Vintage olive basket
I found some metal letter tags earlier in December and I hung them on a piece of twine that I tied to the basket.
I tucked in a green pillow, some greenery with berries and added a bow from some ribbon I got this year at Michael's. Love it!
My last change that I'll show is the one on the mantel. I had been waiting all year to see how it was going to turn out. It was perfect!
Since I don't take down my large oil painting, I like for anything I put on my mantel to look nice with the painting. My SIL painted the angels for me. Isn't she super talented?! Aren't the angels pretty? I tried to vary the height of the angels and then I added the star made from the folding carpenter's ruler.

I loved the changes I made this year and yes, I enjoyed the traditional decorations that I use each Christmas.
Wishing you a Happy New Year!
