Antique stockings & vintage holiday decor

Make your December merry and bright with these antique French Christmas stockings. The linen stockings date from the 19th century and are in excellent condition. A beautiful bit of holiday cheer to hand down to the next generation.

Mercury glass is always beautiful, but it’s especially fitting for the holidays. This mercury bottle would look beautiful on a holiday table.

This vintage silverplate candle shade will add sparkle to your table or mantle.


A vintage sled makes an interesting addition to a family room wall, or propped against a roaring fireplace. This sled from One Kings Lane was¬†manufactured by the Winner Manufacturing Co. of Trenton, NJ in the 1940s. It has original patina and manufacturer’s label underneath.

Great Design for Kids – Modern Kids Bedroom

One of the things I love about modern design is the sense of negative space, the clean lines and fluidity of a sparsely outfitted room. A modern design aesthetic works especially well in a kids’ room. Clutter creates chaos, while minimal design creates a sense of calm that’s good for kids’ brains, as well as their bodies. While it’s impossible to keep a kids’ room spotless, a clean desk makes an inviting space for homework and projects, and a well-made bed makes the whole room feel more restful.

Kids room tip: Since most kids don’t need tons of space for their clothes, the closet is a great place to store toys. For my son’s closet, I bought a sturdy plastic shelving unit and a few canvas bins to hold toys, balls, costumes, and lego boxes. Hanging racks at the top hold shirts he doesn’t wear often or that aren’t good for folding. The majority of his clothes are in a simple wood dresser.

Toy storage tip: Instead of making sure every toy has its place (a losing battle), have a couple of areas in the room to corral toys. Your child should be able to do a 5-minute pickup by piling toys into a toy box or bins. I love this hot pink trunk–which adds a lot of color to a kid’s room while keeping mess hidden away.
