Unlike Picture Page with Bill Cosby, you don't need to grab your crayons and pencils to view pictures of our holiday open house. Although, If any of you happen to have Mortimer Ichabod Marker, I'm am super jealous!
Hobnob Market fiasco of 2012, when I lost all the beautiful pictures that I worked so hard on,(click here to read the blog) I can't risk these pics!
I'm not 100% sure that anyone else decorates their bathroom for Christmas. (I am 100% sure they should). Nothing screams Christmas like an angel themed bathroom! This is some vintage angel garland that we picked up some where along the way! We hung it from the mirror and I personally think it looks pretty cool.
We don't have as many angels. Vintage angels were hard to find! I got most of these at Goodwill but a couple came from an antique mall in Westfield, IN.
One thing I don't lack are Santas or is it Santis?! I have already posted the first round of Santas but I HAVE A TON MORE! Don't you just love the vintage beverage cart they are on? I got this at a church sale this summer for $8. As I was sadly watching amazing vintage suitcases being taken away, mama found this gem. It turned my frown upside down!
I'm the worse person in the world at taking before and after pictures. When I get it in my head something needs to be painting,cleaning, or re purposed I have to do it that second! This super duper cute red chair came from a
garage sale church sale goodwill, I have no idea. It was painted like fake wood?! I know, not a good look for a metal chair! I had a can of red spray paint lying around and TA DA! Now it's super cute!
I blew up this picture a little bigger so you can see all the details. We set the table up with our hair flair and re purposed jewelry. The table in the back was full of vintage Christmas home decor.
Here is a different angle. You can see our vintage stocking were hung with care!
Here is a picture of my screen Christmas tree. My bestie Brandi and I made it over Thanksgiving. I got the screen free from Asset Recycling. I did buy some other stuff that day but the screen she threw in for free. The ornaments are from mama's tree in the 80s. Reuse, reduces, and recycled all in one picture! I think it's cute and we did a good job! Who would've thought Brandi and I would do crafts together. The times they are a changing!
Here is our newest pride and job. I love this desk! Of course we got it at Goodwill. It was $11, a little pricey...JUST KIDDING. The drawers were already painted that color and the desk just needed a coat of spray paint. I really truly need to do before/afters pictures. I'm a hot blogger mess! One day I might be able to get it together. NAHHHHH can't see that happening!
I'm sad that I didn't take pictures of my party guests or the food. I had such a wonderful time! I love having people over as much as I love the holidays!
Tomorrow, I'm finally getting a spinal tap which should (hopefully, fingers crossed, prayers said) get rid of my headaches. Since, I won't feel like posting later this week, the AMAZING Nicki from The Vintage Farmhouse, will be doing a guest post. I'm going to have it set up for Wednesday so make sure to check back! I love her blog and am excited to have her on Almost Gemini!

Now, I'm craving a Jell-o puddin' pop!
