A Few More Finds

Some more finds for Christmas - some from thrift stores - others were found here in the house (yes - again!). Below, a pretty snowflake table runner, a vintage Christmas card box, and a Peanuts Christmas book:

I found these in the basement; made to put in your windows, they are large plastic stained glass "windows", dated 1965. I decided they'd look kind of pretty in our front windows:
Another vintage Christmas tin, and two VERY nice, sturdy copper cookie cutters. I don't believe I had a candle-shaped cutter, and ornaments are always fun to decorate:
These other cutters were in the same bag - like I need more cookie cutters. Still - they're nice shapes, and these simple plastic types are very user-friendly:

A nice vintage Mrs. Claus candle holder - she's a cutie:
Ornaments - I'm a total sucker for striped and stenciled ones:
This little guy is missing his friend with the "EL" - I'll just pretend he's a "naughty" little elf who says "No" all the time:

I found four boxes of these vintage ornaments down in the basement, too:

And these unused vintage ornaments picks were at the thrift store:

I wish I had found some of these things in time to try and sell them beofre Christmas!
Oh, well.

i used to collect cookie cutters - long before i was married. lending them out was the big mistake - i never got them back and moved to california. guess i didn't need another collection of anything. i love the candle and the ornament. i like big cutters.

Love the fake stained glass. It would work well in our little bathroom window...so pretty with the light shining through.

The stained glass is so pretty, and your naughty elf needs to star in his own post story, which I would love to author if I felt a bit better. Love T
