Yeh, well you wouldn't really want to hear me sing that. But I was out "thrifting" yesterday & found some fun things. Decided to also show you what I've snagged on a couple of other foraging trips.
So, yesterday, I was in the vicinity of our GW store & popped in just to see if they had anything Christmasy. Yes, thank you, they had some good stuff. I purchased 4 wreaths, each were $2.99 with my senior discount (only time I acknowledge the senior classification is when it involves a discount--don't judge). The largest one is going to be used on my front porch. Two of the smaller ones will go on the garden shed doors, & the 3rd is to decorate my dining room light. These are all very nice, very full wreaths.
Can you believe this sweet Father Christmas was only $3.99? He's very clean & only needs a little fusing with his pack. No kidding, he really does have a pack on his back!
He has such a sweet face.
I don't generally do a lot with tapered candles & holders, but I found this at the same time as Father Christmas & the two just seemed to belong together. This needs a bit of cleaning, but I love that it is fashioned with French horns. I may change the pinecones & greenery or not. It was $1.49.
This is a collection of GW finds from a couple of weeks ago. The wooden Santa is about 20" tall & the paint is in very good condition. He was $2.99. I didn't get a discount on this trip -- I must have looked younger, ha! The box of large silver ornaments was $1, the cute red wooden sleigh was $1.49, the white porcelain Santa was just a buck.
Love this basket. It's flat on one side & has little stamped trees all the way around. It's in great shape, but is intended to look weathered which I really like. It was 99 cents & will be part of my front porch decor. The bird nest for 50 cents will be finding a home outdoors, as well. I'm always looking for candle holders & lucked out finding two. They were each a buck. I really like the twisted stem on the glass one.
The faux mercury glass hurricane & cute little snow couple came from Ross's. They were each less than $5. The wreath is from the $ Store & well, it was a $1. I bought several of these wreaths that will adorn my kitchen -- can't wait to see, can you? Me, too!
Just wanted you to see this hurricane up close. It really has a nice design. Can't wait to see a candle inside.
Lastly was a stop at Michael's for a whole bag of this kind of thing. It was all on sale for 40 to 50% off. Woohoo!
Okay, that's as much time as I can spend in blogland right now. Have several sewing projects in various stages that must be attended to. Thanks for stopping by, & I hope you'll come again soon. Everyone, have a great day!
