Vintage Christmas Monday #5
It's the last Vintage Christmas Monday, hosted by Joan @ Anything Goes Here, and I'm sad to see this party end!
This is a Made In Japan Santa that I found in an antique store, 5o% off! Is it just me, or does Santa look a little sunburned on his nose and cheeks?!
I saw this Santa salt shaker at Goodwill, but he was missing something. "Santa's" what? Santa's reindeer? Santa's cookies? After about half an hour of looking for something that would go with him, I gave up and left him behind.
A week later, I saw this at Goodwill, and I knew right away that I had found "Santa's" something! But now Santa was nowhere to be found! After about 20 minutes of seemingly pulling Goodwill apart....
I now have Santa and his packages. Phewww! The things we go through to get stuff that we don't really need!
Same thing happened with this cookie jar. I found it at Goodwill, walked around for a while looking for his hat. Never did find it. Didn't really need another one, as you can see.
But I had to have it, so I just slapped a stocking cap on him!
And I had to buy another old tree skirt because....
dirty little kitty has made Santa's beard black on this one, and I do believe that after Christmas I will just have to throw it out!
Now, if you arent' totally sick of seeing vintage Christmas things, hop over to Joan's to see her treasures and a list of other blogs participating, and....
