More Thrifty Christmas!

I didn't think I would find much more in the way of Christmas items at the thrift shop, but I was wrong!
My best find was this awesome red shelf for $4.50!  It goes with a chippy red bookcase in my kitchen.  I know the shelf should be hung, but upside down it works on the bookcase!
A great place for some of my vintage small items along with my Kitchen Santa!
Not all of these items are Christmas, but all found the last couple of days thrifting!
Two 'baby Jesus' and two Angels!
My friend Donna collects these baby Jesus's and so these are for her.  I went to Augusta, GA to meet her for lunch and shopping and lots of these items were found with her. Nothing over .25 was paid for each of these sweet things!
The little miniature creamer had a cat on it so I had to have it.  The Santa boot, well like I said .25 and home it came!
I found both of these Nativities yesterday at the Habitat for Humanity. 
Adding to my small but growing collection.  Paid $1.25 for both.
My blog friend Claudia calls me the 'mini whisperer' since I have the best luck in finding miniature pottery at the thrifts.
Each of these was only .25
I think the two white pieces are Shawnee, but the Blue is not.

I want to share this photo of my Maileg pixies.  I ordered them last year when they went on a great sale that my friend Carol (Art & Sand) told me about.  Then I was gone for Christmas but they did arrive and so this year they are celebrating with me.  I put them in the old high chair that was my Mother's.  All her siblings sat in it, I sat in it and most of my cousins did also.  Both of my girls used it and now both of my Grands have used it.  A family treasure!

I'm helping my friend Carter get moved into his new home.  He has been staying here for 4 months while looking for a house to purchase.  We have been a bit crowded in this small 2 bedroom place (along with 2 cats), but I'm glad I could help him out while he searched.

Christmas will be here before you know it, so take some time to enjoy the season, family, friends and celebrate the love of God.

Wishing you JOY,

Love your red shelf and all the sweet treasures. I still remember a little rocking chair I had as a child, only wish I still had it. Your red chair is such a wonderful family heirloom.

Hi Linda ...
Merry Christmas.
I bet you have a happy kitchen and easy to decorate for Christmas with all your red. Love the vintage red high chair and that you have a story to tell with it. You do have an eye for the small things. Every time I see one, I think of you. Love the white vases that may be Shawnee.
Glad you and Donna got go thrifting together. Fun, fun !!

It's a good thing we weren't at the thrift at the same time or there might have been a tussle for that book case! It's fabulous -- and looks wonderful with all your holiday treasures!

Sounds like you have lots going on! Keep cozy and enjoy every minute!

Susan said...

What a great idea to use that shelving unit upsidedown! Looks fabulous, Linda. I love it. You did great, girlfriend. Merry Christmas! Thanks for your visits. Hugs. Susan

You found some great finds! The little baby Jesus that Donna collects reminds me of my Mary statues I collect. I'm planning a redo of my bedroom soon and I'll be displaying my collection in there :o)

I like how you put the shelf upside down, I don't think I would have thought of that, I probably would have hung it but it looks really cute like that!!

Merry Christmas my friend!!


Diann said...

You sure do know how to find a great deal, Linda! And I'm glad you get to enjoy your adorable pixies this year. One of these days I'm going to buy myself a mouse. A stuffed one, that is. :o)
