This year I’m having a blue Christmas, aqua blue that is. It’s one of my favorite colors, so why not use it for Christmas too?
My friend/co-worker/Carriage House sale partner Sue gave me this rusty aqua blue truck for my birthday last month.
It didn’t start out in my favorite color, it was originally green. But Sue painted it and added that adorable Christmas Tree Farm sign on the door. Keep this in mind if you ever happen to find a vintage toy truck that isn’t quite the color you want. Just paint it.
The truck looks adorable filled with vintage aqua and white Christmas light bulbs.
My friend/co-worker Jodie gave me this authentically aqua rusty toolbox …
It’s the perfect color to house my vintage aqua ornaments.
My friend/co-worker Cathy gave me this charming trio of tiny glasses.
Aren’t they sweet filled with tiny Christmas ornaments?
I put together this ombre box of shiny brites myself …
As far as I know, Shiny Brite didn’t make an ombre box of ornaments, but maybe they should have!
I couldn’t leave out my other rusty aqua truck, so I added some seasonal cargo to the truck bed.
The sprinkling of snow adds the perfect touch.
We’ve had some very gloomy days this past couple of weeks, but I’m hoping to see just a little hint of sunshine this weekend so that I can get some photos of my house decked out for the season.
I’ve also got another house tour planned for the coming weeks. My fellow Reclaiming Beautiful vendor, Amy, is graciously welcoming me into her home this Sunday for a photo tour. I hear that she really does it up for Christmas, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing her place and then sharing it with you here on the blog. So be sure to stay tuned next week!
