My Thrifty Thursday Christmas Finds!

Counting down until Christmas and there is no rest for the thrifty!  I'm not looking for much, just a few gems here and there and that is what I got today!

My favorite find today was the glass bead picks!  They haven't been easy for me to find.  One each Tom and Jerry mugs which I think may be Josef--so cute and nicely painted.  The green bottle brush trees aren't vintage, they have a China sticker on them, but they seem to be more like vintage repros than Lemax style trees.  I'll remove all the plastic balls and put glass ones and mica or vintage glitter on them!  I may have to decorate up a few bottle brush trees tomorrow, I'm itchin' to do that.  I can't pass up a stenciled Shiny Brite or a partial roll of vintage Vel-Stik ribbon.  It's a ribbon with adhesive on it, great stuff for Christmas crafting!!  There is quite a bit on the roll!

    1. Thanks for visiting Lisa! It's a lot of fun to post when you know there are others who love the old vintage Christmas stuff too! I wish my day were longer though--I haven't been able visit other blogs to see what everybody else is doing/getting!
