My Weekend Finds
I finally had some luck thrifting last week! It's been rough going lately, but I knew if I kept popping in, I was bound to find something good.
I've wanted one of these Christmas card files ever since I first saw one on Laurie's blog, Magpie Ethel. And let me tell you, it's helped me out alot since I brought it home. I've sent out a grand total of one card so far! I also found that bunch of old Christmas cards for a quarter each.
I thought this old Made In Japan gingerbread house was so cute, even though Hansel and Gretel's every move is being watched by the wicked old witch hanging out the door, waiting to eat them!
This is the second tin with this design that I've found this year, and although I really love that big fat bumblebee on the lid, that's not why I bought this one.
It's because of what was inside! I won't tell you how long I played around with these, trying to show each one off to it's best advantage. Question: How many pretty ornaments does a person have to buy before they finally stop being absolutely thrilled every time they find more?!?
I added the Santa and the tree to my small Gurley candle collection.
I think my favorite find last week was this vintage child's watering can. These things are so outrageously expensive that when I see one cheap, which is very rare, I want to do a cartwheel or something. Instead, I just grab it and walk somewhat quickly to the cashier! So, did you find anything last week that you flipped over?
