Boho Christmas Tree from a Bamboo Wine Rack

While on a trip to visit family in Florida, we OF COURSE swung by a couple of thrift stores. I spotted this bamboo wine rack right away.

Retro Christmas Wreath from a Christmas Cookie Tray

Funny story- throughout the past year, I found one Christmas cookie tray after another. Some were vintage-y, some less so.
