Rustic Holiday Decorations in Asheville

I ran across these lovely holiday decorations during my visit to Asheville and wanted to share them with you. I love how the vintage kitchen gadgets are strung up as a garland...what a cute idea! I think this was along the front of Tupelo Honey, which is fitting. 

I've seen box graters used as light fixtures and muffin tins repurposed for organizing things, but I've never seen them elevated to decor in such a unique way. 

I think it would be cute to decorate an entire Christmas tree with kitchen themed items....for instance if you had a large collection of antique cookie cutters. Here's another neat way a blogger named KayteeJane turned her vintage cookie cutters into a festive holiday garland.

There are so many things we can do if we just get a little bit creative. Often, I think about our ancestors who managed to do so much with so little. Surely with all the resources we have today, we can do more with less!
