Thrifty Christmas Finds!



I casually stopped in to see what the thrifts were offering and I came home with this 
vintage metal lantern.  It has a pot of ivy glued to the bottom. 


But lo and behold the bottom came off .  It seems only peeling paint was holding it on.  I like it this way best!
$2.99 their price and .99 on a sticker on the bottom.  They gave it to me for the .99!  





 I wasn't going to buy another mug.  But who could resist? Aqua, snowflake and such a cute saying
inside!  It was only $.79 but I should have hardened my heart.  It is hard to drink from, see how the lip turns in? I felt like I was drinking upside down.   Eagle eyes better than mine will also see the hairline crack.  
I'm pouting.





This cute tin Santa with the swinging legs was a prize!  He is on my mantel now.   


The little bough of greenery has scrolls of music and holly berries, too cute!  
I added lights to a golden star basket I thrifted some time ago and they twinkle in five colors.  



 This little primitive stocking hangs very sweetly on the bookcase.  $.10 and it was mine.

It's so much fun to thrift shop right now! Love your Santa and that adorable stocking! Better not pout...you can always give it back! (that's what I tell myself) Enjoy your week my friend! Isn't our weather glorious? HUGS!

Great finds all!

You did GREAT thriftin! Love your finds!

I absolutely adore that lantern-turn-cloche......it has endless possibilities. Right now I am thinking faux silk red poinsiettas with tiny rice twinkle white lights inside- ??

Thanks so much for visiting me so I could find you. Smiles and wishes for a Happy Christmas~!
The lantern is wonderful! I hate when I buy a mug and fail to notice cracks or chips!! Thanks for linking to TTF!
That lantern is a steal! Wow!

You did done good girl! lol! I love the lantern in all it's chippy goodness! The turquoise mug is sweet with the simple little snowflake. I can see that it would be hard to drink out of. I also adore the sweet stocking. I found a few good thrift finds on Wednesday. Have a Merry Christmas!
hugs,
Jann
