Finds For Christmas

I have managed to find some nice Christmas items at the thrift shops, here lately. So of course I wanted to share them with you in a post.
 I found a lovely vintage Christmas tin:
You know how much I love vintage cards. Well, I found some that I can actually use. Hot air balloons - there are ten of these:
And pretty Christmas candles; there were twenty in this packet:
"The Merrie Christmas Drink Book" was not MY find, it was Lori's. But she gave it to me for my Peter Pauper Press book collection - because she's a sweetheart:
This vintage card box, below was full of unused vintage cards, too...
... but I am less likely to use these older ones, especially when they are from the 1940's, and I have only one of each:
No, I think I will be keeping them, not sending them:
A "sweet" pair of vintage candy cane pillow cases:
Mrs. Claus and a box of vintage C-9 bulbs in some of the unusual colors I love:
Here's wishing you a colorful Christmas!

I have one or two of the WWII cards too and I LOVE them! My favorite Shiny Brite box is the one that has Uncle Sam and Santa shaking hands. :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE those candy cane pillowcases!
