A while back I found a square-ish brass piece of junky goodness that appeared to be the casing of a vintage or antique lantern. That was my best guess anyway.
It had a lovely surface, both in color (worn brass with some green verdigris) and texture (smooth, but not slippery). I hung on to it hoping at some point I’d have a grand idea about how to re-purpose it.
The idea finally struck last week: it would make a charming Christmas diorama!
It occurred to me that it would make the perfect “container” for a special Christmas decoration. Keeping things pretty simple, I went with mostly white and gold/brown, and then added a tiny cluster of red berries for some color.
And of course the focal point–the ceramic deer (cute as can be, right?)–is a vintage piece dating to the 50’s. The vintage-style, white bottle brush tree is the perfect compliment.
Thanks for stopping by–
