Welcome back to The Holiday Home Series.
My favorite Christmas decorating elements are everyday items with sentimental meaning.
Every year, I set up a vignette in the master bedroom using mementoes from our four babies.
This year, I put a different spin on the vignette by incorporating our Grandma's vintage costume jewelry.
Grannie is a very special lady.
Putting her vintage jewelry next to our babies first shoes totally gives me the warm and fuzzies.
It represents the generations of our family and our roots.
Not to mention, her stuff is really cool.
Some of the pieces I used on the tree were chosen for their color, like this white elephant necklace (my absolute favorite).
The clock necklace was chosen for the obvious correlation between Christmas and clocks.
The Matthew 7:7 pendant is a great reminder of the true meaning of Christmas and an inspiring example of Grannies faith.
I used a combination of new and vintage bulbs. The shiny brown and matte blue are from the Martha Stewart Collection. The gold vintage bulbs are from my Mom, an antique dealer.
I put the extra ornaments in a glass bowl with Grannies faux pearls and vintage button necklace next to the tree.
Each year I display the family Christening gown next to our baby vignette.
To anyone else, this vignette is pretty simple but to us, it's exceptional.
