Are these the sweetest? I bought them at a Senior Center Rummage sale several years ago. I got them for FIVE CENTS EACH! I covet them and have only used a couple of them. I just can't seem bring myself to use them all. I have a pink one on a wreath I made awhile back but that yellow one may never find a proper home because I think he is too neat. Now that I have said that out loud, it seems silly that if I think he is so great, he would spend his days in a big old box and not out where I can see him. Looks like I will have to rethink my plan...
I have boxes and boxes of the yummiest Vintage Christmas stuff that I have collected for a long time now. I finally decided it was time to sort things out into seperate containers so I know what I have to work with. It drives me nuts to have to look for every tiny thing through a mass of huge boxes. So take a gander- All the like little items in the same box. All the cardboard houses, all the tiny glass balls, all the funny little charmingly garish corsagey looking present toppers together. I am so enthralled with old Christmas stuff. It is just too good.
How funny is the Santa with one boot? Not sure what I will do with him but he might come in handy. That bowl he is in I found at an estate sale a couple of weekends ago. It has little wooden ball feet. It just feels good and woody. Here is one of my very favorite things I have. I found it at an Estate Sale a few years ago and I know Ididn't pay that much for it. They feel so nostalgic- my Grandma used to put this little decals on our presents. The colors and designs are the best. I just love that sort of thing. I have some old gift wrap too so today I wrapped some little $1 frames I got at Michaels in them. The others have the german glass glitter. Don't you just love all those colors?
So you can see the holidays are in full swing here. Now I just have to finish sorting all the stuff so I can make more stuff!
