I Get Inspired By Carlene!

Isn't it fun when you find a blogger that just decorates the way you wish you could!  Carlene at Organized Clutter is one of those bloggers! 
 She inspires me! 
Take this vignette for example...
When I saw this I knew I could create my version of this for
 Debbiedoo's Holiday Knock Off (copy cat) Party
This is my version of Carlene's vignette
My vintage suitcase is green but I think that works also. 
 I had everything I needed to make this vignette.  Most of it was thrifted.
I didn't have an Angel the right size, but I used this Santa and 
I like how it works in the vignette. 
 I also have the same bag hanging behind the angel as Carlene. 
I used a bottle with the word JOY on it
and added a cardinal for my bird on the tree

I am really happy with how my 
copy cat vignette turned out!
Thanks Debbie for hosting this fun party!
Now head on over and see all the other great Knock Off's!  

Happy Holidays,

Linda

And a very good version it is! I can't even pick which one I like better, though I do believe I'm leaning toward yours.

While Carlene's is lovely, I honestly admit I like yours better. Of course now I have to go see the other copy cats from your comments and visit Debbie's party as well.
