Christmas Copy Cat

Imitation is flattery, right?
The following three images are from Southern Living - and the last three photos are from my home (in case the poor photography fools you).

Above Images: Southern Living

And in my home.................

Actually, I only copied the santa cups on the tiered cake stands.

The rest of these I honestly display every Christmas.

I found seven of my 10 santa mugs at my favorite flea market, recently. Less than $5 for the seven of them!

Housekeeping Notes:
1. My door is part of My Modern Vintage Farmhouse's Door contest. You can vote until Saturday. (I am door #3, but they all are very pretty - vote for whichever one you want!)
2. Please visit Transformation Thursday at

The Shabby Chic Cottage

Pin It!

All your Santas are precious! I love mercury glass too, it's always been a favorite of mine.

Ha! That's ok...that's why they put stuff in magazines. To give us ideas right?? Really cute!

Yours are better, and your Santa cups have more expressions.

I say if it's in a magazine, it's okay to copy it. I love your Santa cups, I love everything. It looks great.

Your displays are just as great as SL's! For what it's worth, I haven't had an original idea since I started blogging. Anybody can look at magazines, blogs etc. and have the "want-t0-do-this" but it doesn't matter unless you initiate the idea and try it! Love it!
