More Finds For Christmas

As usual, I have been finding things at the thrift shops.
Today, we have a round-up of Christmas items.
I couldn't resist this little Ford truck, and when I brought it home, I had the perfect vintage tree to throw in the back:

This Santa called out "Hello, and Ho, Ho, Ho" - and I had to bring him home:
These gift tags aren't so very old, but they're a lot cuter than a lot of the new ones you will find today,
and you can't beat the packaging :
I love these Noma Italian Style tinsel sunburst lights, but I wish I knew how to make them "non-twinkling"!
I couldn't believe I found three of these vintage (Made In Japan) Santa head mugs at the thrift store that sells their mugs for ten cents each!
An adorable Raggedy Ann planter for Christmas:
A fragile mercury glass reindeer, and the Santa on his back is actually a vintage pin:

The brightest and cutest book, "Santa's Paint And Color Book:


And another adorable vintage book with Santa:
Two sweet angels, A vintage Peanuts "Christmas Is Together Time" book, and another Peter Pauper Press book, "Christmas Tidings":
And I also found a set of four of these vintage Santa coasters:
Straight out of a vintage Helen Gallagher-Foster House catalog!
One more thing - I found a brand new, with tags Christmas shirt in my size for two dollars!
Guess what I'll be wearing on Christmas Day??

If the string of lights has 1 bulb that is clear with a red tip, that is usually the bulb that makes the lights flash. Replace that bulb with a solid color and the flashing stops.
