If I had to choose my favorite holiday movie it would probably be “A Christmas Story”. But I do have to say, the movie “It’s A Wonderful Life” certainly runs a close second on my list. Just thinking about the movie “A Christmas Story” puts a smile on my face. I thought it would be cool to create a vignette to honor that emotional tie to a certain time and place. This is easy to do with any movie or book that you love.
One of the first things that I found for my vignette was “Ralphie’s” hat! The miniature sleigh was the base for a gift basket I received last year. I filled a split wood basket with strands of mini white lights and added fresh evergreen sprigs to the rim and pinecones on top. This makes a wonderful night-light. A few ilex branches in an old milk bottle, popcorn to string, and a framed photo of the infamous tongue on the flagpole scene and you’re there!
