Shiny Thrifts for Christmas and gift giving
I also purchased a few Christmas things on my three month hiatus from this blog.
Four older christmas ornaments from an antique shop for .75 cents each, and some mini-bulbs in the original box. Someone came by and also wanted his picture taken at the same time, so here is a gratuitous dog photo....
Anyway back to the mini-bulbs. I bought these at the Salvation Army. I have to admit, I bought them mostly for the box, with its three-colour silk screen, 60s (?) font and the whimsical winter scene, but at a quarter this could be justified.
I'm sure I'll use them somewhere.
I also bought a few Anchor Hocking dishes that my sister over at Carpe Diem Acreage is collecting. She's been a great help in adding to my Kathie Winkle collection, and I'm happy to return the favour.
These came from the same antique store and Sally Ann as my Christmas stuff. I got the side plate for only .50 cents, which my Sis tells me is a good deal. Too bad she'll have to wait until Thanksgiving for me to deliver it!
