A Very Junk Drunk Christmas

We wanted to give a sneak peek at what a very Junk Drunk Christmas looks like. This year we combined several elements; traditional, woodland, vintage (duh), and quite eclectic after it was all said and done. This post is dedicated to our personal collection. We suggest visiting the website or the showroom so you can make up your very own Junk Drunk Christmas!

I have mentioned somewhere before, oh yes, in this link – that I am rather addicted to owls. I also have a host of other characters that get thrown in the mix when Christmas rolls around. Penguins, pheasants, chickens, horses, squirrels, reindeer, and I am probably forgetting other obscure creatures. Some items I have handmade, like my daughter’s advent calendar, and a slew of waterless snowglobes that feature vintage bottle brush trees and penguin figurines.

Let’s start with the Christmas trees shall we? Hands down favorite element this year were the vintage marching band hats used as tree toppers:

The aviators were initially a joke, but we like his style so we left them.

JONES letters came from some business signs in FL. They stay up year round of course!

We are loving the penguin nesting dolls, and the old cough medicine cabinet.

Other elements we incorporate into the Christmas decor are heirloom items. Lace table cloths from my great aunt, some of grandma’s knick knacks, and much more! Do you incorporate pieces in your decor that are similar? We would love to see and hear what everyone else decorates with! Our decorating rules are simple – there are no rules, mix and match what makes you feel at home. No design contests here, and establishing traditions along the way makes it fun for the whole family.

Don’t have any heirlooms? Maybe want some extra? Be sure to check out www.JunkDrunkJones.com for a host of unique pieces to use in your decor seasonally, or year round.
