Lots To Do!

The next few days are going to be super busy for me (as I am sure they will be for all of you).  Sister gets here today, Alex has a chiropractic appointment this morning and a game tonight, and we are supposed to be baking some more tomorrow but someone (ahem, Sister) wants to do a little thrifting.  Now normally this wouldn't be an issue.  But on Sunday we are hosting our annual Christmas brunch for about 20+ people and I have a lot to do to get prepared!  I always get so distracted when my Sisterita is here!  Plus, I have to get caught up with all of my finds! 
I managed to grab this blow mold out of a cart that was being wheeled out of the back at Goodwill.  The worker didn't even stop as I grabbed it.  She must have thought I was a complete idiot!  I also picked up this Santa candle holder for Sister (it's a duplicate find for me this year).  The salt and pepper shakers are a little rough for wear but they are old dangit!  I can't pass up anything old and marked Japan.
I also found the matching candlestick holders for the Lefton Holly set I blogged about the other day.
I got a Ziploc bag filled with tiny little Christmas crafting things at SVDP.
I also picked up this amazing picture book
Check out those photos!
During our most recent trip to Glory Days, Maddie picked out these plastic Santa candy holders and these little Santa figurines for crafting.  They aren't old but sure are cute!
And of course she also picked out another blow mold and some more Putz houses.  Sadly, with the chaos of the season, we didn't get a chance to decorated them.  Oh well, there is always next year!
Can you believe that I still have more to show you? 
On a much more somber note, as you all know, today marks one week since the tragedy at Sandy Hook.  If you can, wear a little bit of green to honor the victims.
I'm linking up over at The Thrifty Groove for Thrifty Things Friday.  See you there!
Happy Holidays, Friends!
