Rustic Christmas Gingerbread Vignette

I don't know about you but I am overwhelmed already.

Taking down fall, crafting, dragging out Christmas, and still working, cooking, and trying to clean and pick up. First I put out the spray painted snow village in the bathroom, then I decorated the mantel in the living room, and I just finished a vignette over the sink in my kitchen. I'm sure that somehow all this clutter will be organized by Christmas!

Last summer I found four really neat gingerbread baking pans at the consignment shop for $1 each. I think they are home made, and spot welded. I don't think they are cookie cutters but little pans for actually baking a gingerbread inside. Anyway they are very cool, and I couldn't wait to use them for Christmas.


I started out with some vintage sifters. This one has two cloth gingerbread men from a local craft shop, The Tattered Angel.


Then I used a larger sifter for a large bottle brush tree,


And a medium sized sifter for a medium sized bottle brush tree.



Then I loaded my little wood cubby shelf also from the Tattered Angel with three of my gingerbread pans, a gingerbread look cookie, a Jello mold with a grubby flameless candle, silver ornaments in a couple sizes and some faux snow. The gingerbread pan men have thick Alpine looking yarn tied around their necks.










Loving the vintage, rustic look!

  5. So cute. I have some gingerbread things that I set out for Christmas, too. I was just thinking about my flour sifter the other day about how it is probably considered vintage, hah.

  9. Are we alike or what? I am laughing as I type this. My kitchen and family room is gingerbread and candy themed. It's all finished except for the tree. I put out two of my old sifters and a couple pastry cutters. I have an old bowl with gingerbread cookies in it. Now here's the thing. I put a mini bottle brush tree in a metal cup. After seeing this I added a white tree I had in one of my sifters. Planning on doing a post on Thursday. Love your vignette! The pans were a great find. I have that stamp that was used on your tag. May need to make one. It's too cute. Also love your new header with your projects.
    Hugs,

  26. Hi Carlene!
    What a delightful post. Your gingerbread men are as sweet as can be. I love that they are thrifted and so rustic. You have such a wonderful way of arranging charming little items in such an artful way. I just found a gingerbread man sewing pattern in a thrift shop for only 25 cents. Your post inspirs me to make it up.

    Thank you for your kind visit and comments on my blog. I enjoy your blogging friendship so much.

    Blessings, my friend,
