Happy Week Before Christmas!
I'm back again with more vintage Christmas. Hopefully you aren't getting tired of these posts because I still have a lot to show you. But if you are getting sick of vintage Christmas, this probably isn't the right place for you to be spending your time :-)
I have picked up a few of these trays this season. I don't think they are old, but they look like it to me! And isn't this the biggest Gurley candle you've ever seen? This is the first of this type that I had ever seen and I found it at Goodwill.
Then, the craziest thing happened...
Brian found one with a red hat at another Goodwill. It's not in the best shape but he knows not to leave Gurley's behind! I found this old Santa planter at the thrift too. I found a similar one last year but the Santa is sitting at the piano, not on it.
I went to an estate sale a while back and didn't find anything in the house. As I was walking out, I decided to check the back yard. Brian was needing a new grass seed spreader so I thought it was worth a look. Look what I found in the shed! Cute little Putz houses dying for makeovers.
And some sweet spun head angels along with some picks and a bottle brush wreath.
Obviously I was the first person to step foot in the shed because I'm pretty sure this box of Shiny Brite's wouldn't have still been there!
Old Christmas tins are one of my newest collections. It's fun to have something new to look for at the thrift stores. Plus, the thrifts haven't caught on yet that people collect these so they are still normally priced under a dollar. I want to try a tinsel wrapped wreath this year so I have been stocking up on garland when I find it.
You can't ever have enough supplies for vintage Christmas crafting. Now if I could just find the time!
More Santa mugs. Weird, right? I kept picking these up and putting them back because I just couldn't tell if they were old or not. I am pretty sure they are handmade though because the only markings they have are the initials ER on the bottom. Since these just so happen to be my initials, I took that as a sign and brought them home.
Stay tuned for more vintage Christmas madness! Since Hanna is in town, I'm sure she will make me hit up the thrifts a few more times. She is so mean!
