WARNING: Naughty Elves!
I added another kneehugger elf to my collection over the weekend, and I feel it's only fair to warn you all that the elves seem to be acting a little bit naughty as we get closer to Christmas!
I found this little guy on Saturday, and already I caught him trying to let Petunia out of her cage. I think I got there just in the nick of time!
Then I found him trying to let all of the other elves out of the apothecary jar. I knew I should have put him in the jar right away, instead of just setting him on the table! I'm going to have to keep an eye on this one, for sure!
The new girl on the block! I've been so disappointed that I haven't been able to make but one or two additions to my Christmas Angel and Girl collection this year. The prices have been outrageous on Ebay, and I haven't seen a single one in the antique shops around here.
I also found this little handmade felt tablecloth, for 50 cents. The ladies at the thrift store were actually using it, and it had two coffee dribbles on it that I was going to have to rinse out, so that's why they let me have it so cheap!
I also found these two vintage bells. Why so serious, Mr. Snowman? Did the Mrs. run up the charge card again?
Two old Made In Japan (three of my favorite words, along with vintage!) stockings.
Two more Gurleys for this girlie! The choir singers are a welcome addition, along with an old White Christmas 45. I seem to be having a little more success in the vintage Christmas thrifting department. But nowhere near as good as last year. How about you? The last thing I have to share with you today is this: Keep a close eye on those elves!!!
