Happy Thrifty Tuesday friends!
We had some lovely snow yesterday, and it’s beginning to look and feel a lot like Christmas.
This was a good week for Christmas finds, but I also found a few other treasures.
This clock is dated 1992 so it’s not that old, but it’s very cool.
The Canadian in me really wants to keep it. I’ve never seen another one like it, but I might have to paint it because I’m so not a faux wood grain loving kinda gal.
Would you paint it? If so, what colour?
Painting around all those coats of arms would be quite the job, but I think it would be worth the effort. It’s not so vintage that I’d be hurting the value.
These copper plates or trays will look great as the back of garden plate flowers. I’ve always used silver ones so I think these will be nice for a change.
This Santa and Mrs Claus pair of ceramic shelf sitters was obviously someone’s project. They’re marked 1988 on their bottoms and whoever made these did a fabulous job.
Do you remember these satin bell ornaments from the 60s? I sure do.
And these satin ball ornaments too! I remember having solid coloured red and green ones.
This lot of vintage faux-beaded plastic fruit picks are probably from the 80s.
I’m keeping some and will be selling the rest as a lot.
And a favourite find of the week are two 8 foot long vintage plastic blow mold fruit garlands in a bag for $1. Yahoo! I love them! They seem to be lightly sprinkled with some clear glitter. All the better! 🙂
They’re so fun and colourful, and remind me of a simpler time when Christmas was magical.
Life savers and candy canes, but I don’t know what the third candy is supposed to be. Do you know?
I’ll be hanging onto these for a while I think… maybe a long while.
They’ll be a fabulous addition to my vintage decorated living room tree. I hope to get some good pics so I can share it with you. Our family room Christmas memory tree is already up, so one down and one to go.
We aren’t doing a lot of decorating this year because we’re keeping things simple, but I always love to decorate trees. They’re so pretty, and I could sit and just look at them for hours and hours.
Thanks so much for reading and until next time…
