Let your heart be light
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight ♬♪♫ ~ Frank Sinatra
I have a little something that will help your heart be light... it's a Gurley little Christmas scene!
Do you remember the little vintage curio cabinet I made over? If you didn't see the before of this little cabinet you'll definitely want to see that! Check it out here: Thrift Shop Upcycled Display Shelf.
I bought that curio cabinet specifically for my vintage Gurley candle collections and I've got my Christmas collection all set up in it!
On the bottom shelf is Santa Claus himself, a group of caroler girls and boys, some adorable little deer, and an angel on the moon.
I covered a couple of small boxes with wrapping paper to give some items a little lift and keep it from looking too flat.
The top shelf has my newest additions to my collection... a nativity scene! And there is a crooked little church too!
The nativity scene includes the baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the two cute little lambs. My mom had the two trees that she was going to sell in our space at the antique mall but I had to have them so they never made it into the booth!
There is a little angel on the very top of the cabinet too.
I sprinkled some fake snow around them and added a couple of sparkly snowflake ornaments from the Dollar Store.
I love how it turned out! I almost have too many candles for the cabinet already though!
I'm excited to change out the background of the cabinet and display my Gurley candles for each holiday!
I wrote a guide to Gurley candles if you'd like to learn more about them as well as how to clean them. Check that out here: Gurley and Tavern Candles Collectibles Guide.
Do you have any of these sweet little candles?
