Christmas in Full Vintage Swing

It's been awhile!  I have been subbing as a Para Ed teacher in my local school district and, I just found out that my novel, "From the Fish Bowl with Love" will be published in August 2015...but not before I go through the editing process.  It's been busy.  I wanted to stop in and share my vignettes for the Holiday!  Also, if you'd like to follow the process of my book you can find me on Facebook at:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/From-the-Fish-Bowl-With-Love/791587967549793
and also on my other blog:  www.walkingonw.blogspot.com

A little Christmas in the laundry room...

A Little Christmas

I cleaned out a TON of Christmas stuff this summer, and I've tried not to get anything.  However...there were a couple of things I just couldn't resist.

A Josef Card holder.  For $1  I found a new Sr. Center thrift.  Those are the best.

This was an amazing find.  I usually don't do Santa.  I'm more the Angel and Snowman type.  But I spotted the box, high up on a shelf at Value Village and I knew it was something special.  Sure enough, this Napco set was inside, in MINT condition!  $6.99!

A table cloth, Vera Napkin, and hand made potholder.  LOVE Christmas linens!

Hope you are all finding great Christmas!

Beautiful Autumn

Hi Fellow Vintage Lovers, Thrifters, Bloggers and Friends:

Well, the sales are winding down.  I just took my last big batch of goodies to the antique store to sell.  However, I did find some amazing things over the last month, and made some updates as always.

This tool box is becoming one of my canvas' that I change regularly

Decided to take a runner my Mom made out of a round vintage table cloth and make a no sew valance.  I just used thumb tacks, so I used little toad stools to cover them.


Been looking for a cracker container like this for ages.  They are always a fortune at the antique stores...got this at my favorite thrift for a song!

This 50 cent pot holder in vintage fabric adds just the right color pop

Found this in a broken frame in the free box at a sale.  I washed it, ironed it and reframed it!

My Birthday collection

I've been wanting one of these forever...$2 at Goodwill!
Also $2 at Goodwill, the Hazel Atlas Strawberry!

I LOVE food with faces!  Couldn't pass up this towel at a thrift.
