Vintage Shiny Brites


I bet you were expecting to see a tree decorated with Shiny Brites. All in good time. Should it really take a week to decorate a skinny, 5 foot tree?

But this photo was taken when I was just starting the tree decorating process the other day. I had just unwrapped all my ornaments and tossed them in a Coke crate, so that I could make sure everything had their hangers securely attached before I put them on the tree this time. Lacey's favorite pastime is wagging her tail as she walks past the tree and getting ornament hangers snagged on her butt, so I was trying to avoid any unfortunate accidents this year.

I turned around to grab another ornament and ran to grab my camera instead. Nothing says Christmas more than a jumble of Shiny Brites.

This is where my Mom would say that a nativity scene or a choir or something like that probably says Christmas more. But in a commercial sort of way, Shiny Brites do it for me.

What says Christmas to you?

  4. I agree... I put my ornaments on trays and in baskets before I put them on the tree. They really are so pretty on their own as well! Your garland is fabulous!

  7. It's all about the vintage ornaments for me. The rest of the year I typically avoid shiny objects in my home so I more than make up for it at Christmastime.

  11. Anything Christmassy and vintage does it for me, but nothing more so than big old-fashioned energy wasting outdoor Christmas lights. Shame on me!

  12. Shiny Brites. I love that they spelled it Brite too. Kind of just to through you off. When I dig in boxes at estate sales and see that classic spelling I swear I become tachycardic.
