Speaking of, can you believe we're already nearing the halfway point of December? I feel like I say this every year, but it still baffles me how fast 365 days can go by. I've been thrifting some great presents for Christmas, and I've also been going what I call "Christmas crazy" around the house, snatching up vintage decorations everywhere I go. Yesterday I went to an estate sale that was loaded with such treasures. It was the house's fourth sale (and also the one where I found that load of vintage cookbooks), and the company running it said it still has the whole third floor and the basement to clean out, so I know I'll be back for that! After that there was one other sale that yielded nothing for me, and then a quick stop at a thrift store, where I found a few things.
I'm going to take pictures this week to show you all how we've been decorating our place for the holidays, so today I'll just share what I found that isn't Christmas-related (except for a couple things...).
|I forgot to share this chair with you last week! It's my first '70s piece, and I love the pattern of the cushions!|
|I scooped up a beautiful 2-quart Fire King jadeite dish earlier last week, too. So in love.|
|Now for Sunday's finds! Two brass deer figurines (which brings the count to six!)|
|A beautiful crochet blanket in shades of orange and pink, for sale.|
|Some more vintage saucers and plates for future tea parties and celebrations.|
|I found a ton of gold tinsel garland, which I've been swagging all over the house.|
|A pretty green-and-white scarf for the store.|
|A really cute mustard purse for the store.|
|And a cute handmade Christmas tree skirt!|
|The tree is my favorite part. :)|
How about you? Find any treasures this weekend? Or any nice scores for holiday gift-giving? I would love to hear about it! :)
