VINTAGE CHRISTMAS TRINKETS

I went to the post office today and stopped in at my favorite little thrift store next door. Being Monday, I was figuring on there being nothing left after the weekend. Well! I guess no one wanted vintage Christmas items - they left them all for me! I feel like Magpie Ethel! I'm just showing the little things now, and will leave the rest for REDnesday - can you guess why?

A roll of tan grosgrain ribbon, some glass bells, small round glass orn's, a candle + bear with his ear broken off (isn't that just like a teddy?), a real pretty bluebird, cute old stocking orn, a newer drum that will get crafted, a tin or aluminum encircled mirror "made in Mexico", a girl holding a tree, an old spun cotton Santa head, and a spun cotton angel with one wing torn off (she must have been naughty!).

I'll see you on Rednesday for the rest!

Oh My Gosh,
Sue you really raked in the jewels today. I love the little bluebird. Aren't these thrift store finds the best? I have more fun digging through these little packages and stuff thrown in bins than anything else. It is so much fun. You know when you are making prim ornaments they worn ones are the best.

Thanks for sharing today sweetie. I have so enjoyed looking at your little pile of treasures. How fun. Can I come along next time? I always end up going alone, but I still go, and I still have a great time hunting for that one perfect treasure. Stop by soon. I so love to have you visit.

Country hugs and love, Sherry
