A Few Christmas Finds

posted on: Thursday, October 6, 2011

Yesterday I did a post on my successful thrifting trip and told you I also found some Holiday goodies! Well, here are a few of my jingle bell treasures! I still haven't totally decided how I'm going to decorate for Christmas yet, but my new finds are definitely providing me with some vintage inspiration. ;) 
Late 50's early 60's tree skirt  25 cents! (I loooove this!)
An old DIY mistletoe, hanging ball from the late 50's  - only 25 cents.
Another DIY ornament from the late 50's, still in the package! Only 60 cents!
I found an old Christmas children's book to use for Christmas cards, only 60 cents,  as well. Káel decided he wanted to help me while I was trying to take a picture. ;)
I SO cannot wait to read Christmas stories to Forest boy this year!

  5. So, you have inspired me to make cards from vintage books. :) I went today to look for some vintage children's books and I did not leave empaty handed. :) I have always picked up vintage childen's books at thrift stores and such but I would buy them to read to my little Anna. Thanks for the amazing idea! :)
    ps: I will be writing a post about the finds and the cards and will link your site on it as long as that is ok with you?
