I know that I just posted yesterday but I feel like I am running out of time before Christmas and I want to show you all of what I have been finding at the thrifts lately. Our holiday chaos starts Friday when Sister gets here. Alex has a game that night and then we are baking all day Saturday. On Sunday we are doing our annual holiday brunch which is how we like to celebrate the season with all of our friends. Monday is Christmas Eve and we will be at my MIL's house and then you know what Tuesday is! I am frantically trying to get caught up on all of my Christmas finds because once next Wednesday rolls around, I am DONE with Christmas! My tree comes down and all of my precious holiday decorations are carefully packed away until next year. I am definitely not one of those people who keeps their decorations up until after New Years.
I finally gave in and bought this Tom and Jerry eggnog set and Goodwill this morning. There is a never ending supply of these at all of the antique malls around the holidays and I always pass them up. I gave in because this set was only $3 and it's marked Hazel Atlas. I can't ever walk away from Hazel! I also found another Inarco Santa mug. Next year I am going to have to move them somewhere else. The top of my Pyrex cabinet is running out of space for them!
I have no idea what in the world I am going to do with this Shiny Brite plastic wreath. But I couldn't leave it behind. The Lefton Holly sugar and creamer set was all marked separately but the checker at Goodwill gave it all to me for one price. One of the Japan marked choir boys was marked $2.99 and one was marked 49 cents so she gave them both to me for a dollar. I sold a set of Fire King stackable mugs at our garage sale last Summer but I picked these up because of the holiday colors.
I got this little elf shoe mug at Goodwill. I saw the matching pitcher at an antique mall recently for waaaaaaaaaaay too much money. Maybe after the holidays the prices will drop before the dealers pack away everything until next year.
Another blow mold! I got this one from the same Goodwill as the twins that I picked up for Sister and I last week. He is as tall as the Santa one that I showed you all in my holiday decorations post. He is about waist high on me.
I need to get some candles for all of the old candle holders I have been finding. This Santa boot is the last one that I have found in a while. I think I am done finding these for the rest of this season.
OK so I will admit that I don't remember where I picked these up at. I even had to go and look at my decorations to see where I put them! I told you I had a problem!
I just got these two books in the mail today and I am chomping at the bit to read them! I may sneak them into Alex's game tonight and check them out during halftime.
So tomorrow is my first round of Christmas baking. Hopefully I'm not too exhausted tomorrow evening to show you more thrifty holiday treasures!
