Back in September, an adorable little antique shop on Willy St. went out of business, and I swooped in like a carrion bird to score a boatload of vintage Shiny Brite and mercury glass Christmas ornaments at 40% off. Seriously, the way I pillaged the place, I should have been wearing a Viking helmet (and yes, Skaalastic, I know the Vikings did not actually wear helmets…). I’ve been planning this post with up-to-something glee ever since–in the same crazed way I begin hoarding presents and making elaborate lists months in advance— and now that I’ve decked the halls and cut out a cataclysm of paper snowflakes to adorn my apartment, I’m ready to unveil the leading edge of…
Further documentation of the decor here at Chez Crazy coming soon, including more white turtle dove figurines than you can shake a stick at, the silver tea service I gave myself tendonitis polishing the other night, and these ornaments in situ on a 3′ Christmas tree that is currently sporting SEVEN extra strands of lights as part of my ongoing campaign to sap the Madison power grid and make my holiday decorations VISIBLE FROM SPACE.
Hope all of you are looking forward to the holidays and that you have special people to share them with. Enjoy!
