VTT - VINTAGE CRITTERS!


Happy VTT everyone! The other day I took down my vintage mirrored shelf to dust it, and its' contents, a few of them being vintage. Here's the shelf.


Here are the vintage critters. They're so tiny, only about 1" (2.5 cm) tall!


Now, I picked up this basket of 8 tiny reindeer at a thrift shop recently. I couldn't believe they're in such excellent condition! I'm liking the basket, too.
Do any of you know Magpie Ethel? Here's how she blings her reindeer and sells them in her ETSY shop. Can't get any cuter than this!

All of you go over and bug Suzanne at ColoradoLady, our VTT hostess!

Love all of your little critters! You've made me want to dig some of mine out of the attic again! Great deal on that herd of cute deer. I love all of Laurie's creations too! Will your deer be getting a Magpie makeover?!
Happy VTT!

I'm reminded of the ceramic animals you could get in the Red Rose tea boxes. Thanks for sharing!

You scored on the basket of reindeer! I would have snagged those up in a split second. I think they need a little holiday bling....

Debbie said...

cute, cute, cute. I have a few similar cats but haven't ever seen reindeer. How fun they will look this Christmas.
