My Time to Shine New Year’s Vignette is a combination of blues, greens, and metallics, with just a touch of purple. Do you like to add an unexpected splash of color to traditional holiday palettes? I do. I added the usual clock and “2020” sign, but also included a few eclectic items. I can’t wait to tell you about everything.
I took advantage of the 50% off Christmas sales to buy the wreath, frosted trees, bows, beaded silver garland, and the ornament box that also included snowflakes. I will definitely be using these items for other projects as well. The ornaments are displayed on a vintage New Year’s Eve serving plate that has a painted dancing couple design.
My eyes are naturally drawn to the vintage ceramic angels and the turquoise clock. The angels were a Goodwill find. I’m counting on the real angels of this world to watch over my family in 2020. The purple angel became my unexpected pop of color. Anytime I see (well done) hand painted ceramics from the 1970s, I buy them. Most of the moms and grandmas I knew took ceramic classes when I was in grade school. Everyone had ceramic items somewhere in their decor! Our mothers were all at home, so they had time to paint ceramic cats and embroidery on our jeans.
My favorite bird watching binoculars help me to see things that are close, yet seem far away, like 2020. Last year went by so fast! Time flies once you have children (but not until they start sleeping through the night).
The thrift store mirror helps me to reflect on the past year, and the bell is there to help us ring in the new year.
It would be difficult to have a Time to Shine New Year’s Vignette without a new year’s sign. The wooden sign holder below is quite handy. You can print whatever you want, then slip it right under the clip.
I hope you enjoyed my New Year’s Vignette!
Happy New Year!
