Tis The Season for Vintage Christmas!

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Can you believe that we are a little under two weeks away from the big day?  I finally finished getting up my decorations last weekend and need to take advantage of the sunny weather to get some good pics to share with you all.  But Alex got home for his Winter break yesterday and currently it sounds like a war is going on in my living room.  Really, it's a Call of Duty marathon so I think I'll wait until it's clear.  Until then, here are some recent things I have found to add to all of my fun collections...


I love finding vintage aprons at the thrift, especially ones that are for Christmas.  The tins, snow, and tiny Santa boot were found at a local antique mall.


I just love this apron so much!


Just when I finally resorted to buying a vintage style tree skirt on Amazon, wouldn't you know that I'd find an actual vintage one.  After looking for years!!


This Pixie is GIANT.  He barely fits in the palm of my hand.


Brian, Maddie, and I went to breakfast in a neighboring town a couple of weekends ago and stumbled upon a little holiday market.  I give up on not buying Shiny Brites.  When I find them super cheap, they have to come home with me.  The Christmas card box is full of unused cards and the sweet pink deer is the first one I have ever seen with a fluffy tail!


I made a quick stop at my favorite antique mall on my way home from Plucky Maiden's a couple of weeks ago and found another squeaky Santa.  I think I have 5 now.  The Fire King mug and Swanky Swig were patterns I didn't have and the Christmas towel still has the original tags on it!


I found these cute deer at Plucky along with the Empire Blowmold Santa bank.  I had no idea that Empire made banks!

 
Another apron and a couple of sweet Noel angel girls rounded out my Plucky Christmas finds.  I blew my budget at Magpie Ethel's booth :-)

Maddie, Hanna, and I will be together tomorrow for a couple of shows in Portland, including Crafty Wonderland.  I love going to shows this time of year! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Holidays,

Erica

  6. Oh wow! That tree skirt is perfect. Those deer I almost bought a bunch, but I couldn't justify a bag of 8 for $40!

  7. I love seeing your Christmas goodies!
    I've been seeing one of your older pics all over facebook- taken from pinterest.
    :)
    It's the one with the green metal cart loaded with Christmas items and the ceramic deer head on the bottom.
