I hope all your presents are bought (mine are) Packages wrapped (mine aren't)  Christmas cookies made (yes and eaten) 
Well then let's get to the junk! 

I hope you are enjoying Junkin Find Fridays as much as I am.  I really appreciate each and every one of you who join in when you can.   I thought about canceling the parties during the holidays but decided I was still finding stuff so maybe you were also.  I would like to do a little different party next week.  Let's share our favorite junkin finds of 2010~  I will post more on that next week!

So this week I am sharing these thrift store finds!

I found this at the Goodwill the other day
 It is hard to photograph but is gorgeous
Not sure of a maker but it looks a little like Fenton to me, if someone knows the maker please tell me! **It's been confirmed by several as Fenton..yippee!** It was bundled with another dish and I paid 99 cents for both!
I got four of these Corelle plates for $1 and since they are bread plate size have been perfect for cookies and other Christmas treats! 
This Silver Onedia tray was $1
It is 12" across and in great shape
This mitten tea light holder was 50 cents
As was this little Nativity scene
I found this Blue Ridge Pottery plate back in the summer
It is a poinsettia pattern and looks great in a vignette for Christmas...I paid 25 cents for the plate
The angel was bought at Cracker Barrel on sale and the cardinal was in a bag-o-junk at the thrift shop...$1 for the bag, this is a Lenox ornament and really gorgeous
I put them under a cloche

One more thing to share!  I found this vintage item for $1
Yep a made in Japan elf in a shoe!
He is really cute and will join the other vintage items in the cubbies soon!
That's my finds for this time!  I hope you have something to share!  Just remember to link up your post not your blog and please have a link in your post back here! 
I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas!
Happy Junkin,

Hi Linda, I love all your nifty Junkin Finds! The Corelle plates are sooh pretty and I really really love that little mitten tea light holder. It matches a picture frame I purchased to dispaly one of my grands sitting on Santa's lap. You did well my friend! Merry Christmas!~Ames

Hi Linda-

I love the Fenton dish - perfect for Christmas - what a deal. Your little elf is pretty cute, too.

Yep, I am one of the children in the first photo on my post you commented on. I am on the right with my back to the camera. I was 3 years old.
I have baked my cookies and eaten most already too. I hope you have a Merry Christmas.
My best- Diane

I found your blog yesterday and immediately became one of your newest followers. Your thrift store finds are amazing and I just had to join in your party today. Please forgive my older post but it is appropriate for partying!!!
I can't wait to see what everyone else has found! Merry Christmas!

I love the idea of a favorite finds party for next week.
I'll have to give some thought to what was tops on my list.

Happy Holidays!

Merry CHRISTmas Linda Sweetie...
I just love to come and see what you find when you are junkin. You find the best deals sweet friend.

That dish (Fenton) is gorgeous and what a deal on that one. I love it, and it wasn't chipped or broken either, what a deal.

I also love the angel you found at Cracker Barrel. I love that store, we go there to eat, but I always make my rounds about the store looking at all the beautiful items. I bought a snowman this year. He was my hearts desire.

Now that little elf in the shoe? Oh be still my little heart. I love him. He is SO precious. What an addition for your collection.

Have a Merry CHRISTmas Linda sweetie. It has been SO much fun blogging with you in 2010, I so look forward to 2011. Can't wait to see what you find next.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry
