November Thrifts

Visited a few of my favourite Church Bazaars  and Thrift shops this month.  

Vintage AVON Wreath (in original box) in lovely shape. I don't think it had ever been out of its box.

Green Depression Glass cake plate, bear/seal figure, hand carved spoon, brass rocking chair ornament, binoculars, stoneware 0.7 L corked container.

Banana footed Fenton dish silver rim, Fenton comport, 6 brass bells on tree shape, faceted glass apple paperweight and a white deer.

Love finding a mixture of Christmas decorations that look great together.

Sometimes sweet mixes with cute. Love the little handmade ABC/123 cushion.

Brass nut cracker and a small cast iron glue pot. 

For the past several years the Christmas tree decorations have been 'Star Wars'. (yes DS and DGS's collection).

This year I think I will be person who decorates the tree and I am going to use my old fashioned vintage+ collection of fragile and beautiful decorations on a table-top fresh Christmas tree. I haven't opened any of the Christmas bins for many years and I am looking forward to seeing them again.

Bloomed this week. 

Amaryllis are my favourite Christmas flower. 

Thank you for visiting today.
