It's True Confessions time. I must confess that I'm a Vintage Christmas-aholic! It's all I had eyes for this past weekend. And that's all I found too, so I decided to save it all for Rednesday instead of doing my normal Weekend Finds post. The magazine above is from the flea market several weeks ago.
I went to an extremely overpriced antique show, and there was only one booth that was very reasonable. I've been coveting those old Empire noel candle lights for an eternity, and finally found them at my price. I think I'll replace the lights with those clip-on ones from the dollar store though, because old lights give me the willies. And I can never pass up a great old Santa tin!
A couple more Santa mugs to sit on the kitchen windowsill. I think I've picked up several of these since last Christmas, so it might be time to assess the Santa mug collection, and see if it needs to move to a larger venue than the windowsill!
Another vintage tablecloth, which might have a second life as kitchen curtains. I've decided that I don't have nearly enough cute tablecloths, so I'm announcing right here that I will not be passing up a single cheaply priced vintage tablecloth ever again! Plus, I'm secretly hoping that my daughter might one day decide that she does in fact like vintage things!
And last is a cute little Made In Japan angel. One more thing that I feel I don't have nearly enough of! It seems a shame to pack all of this away, when I'll just have to unpack it the day after Thanksgiving. Might as well start decorating now! Have you started yet?
If you would like to see more reds, head over to It's A Very Cherry World, where Sue is our hostess every week!
