Thrifty Thursday... Christmas decorations

I love to dig through the Christmas decorations at Goodwill.  I love how the old stuff looks.  I couldn't resist this little caroler set... someone's Grandma painted these at ceramics club.

The colors are so cute... I'm displaying them with the balls of yarn I made last year.  (Just wrap yarn around styrofoam balls and glue it down).

She was hiding in a box at a garage sale... I might turn her into an ornament.

These vintage tags were cute...

another Grandma collection... the big one is a music box.

These angels were at junk market... aren't they cute together?

I always look for old ornaments at sales too.

Love the Santas.

How perfect is the plaid for Christmas?
Hope this inspires you to check out the Holiday section at your local thrift and antique stores.  Happy hunting!

  3. First of all, I love your banner graphic. Is that a photograph or a photoshop creation? It's very unique!

    Second, awesome finds!! I am seriously inspired to go on the hunt now. It has honestly never occurred to me to look for Christmas stuff at thrift stores. Crazy, huh? I will now, though!

    Thanks for coming by and following me! I'm going to follow you back! I can't wait to see what other goodies you uncover.

  4. I love vintage Christmas decorations too! The vintage santas are my favorite!

  5. Great finds! I especially love all of the plaid, as it brings back memories of my childhood picnics.
