Vintage Thingie Thursday



I am starting to get just a little worried... this week went by in a minute, I swear! I have to get busy! But I wanted to share a few of my vintage Christmas goodies, at least the ones that I have unpacked ( but that is another, post another day )





I got this little guy in the mail today. I just love him! I have been trying for one of these Santa's for quite some time, but they were always too expensive! He was $5.00! :)





This is the cover of a book I also got last week....it is a fun little book from the 1950's....the colors inside are so fun! Pranky is the cutest elf yet!




I love these little salt and pepper shakers!




I have had these sweet little Santa's for quite a few years, an Ebay buy....I just love them! I have to find the red candles that go in the little presents.









These two photos are of some of my folks vintage ornaments, my Mom and Dad have been gone over 27 years, yet every Christmas when I put their ornaments on the tree, I feel like they are right there! Thanks for sharing Vintage Thingie Thursday with me!

I like all your old Christmas thingies.

I got sidetracked when I saw your Vintage Christmas Monday post and started looking at some of the other posts from last Monday. I think I will join that the rest of the month with some of my old Christmas postcards.

Hi Sandy,

Love your ornaments. It's nice that you have your mom and dads. I bought that same santa on the sled, and paid $10 for it at an antique shop. I planned to sell it on e-bay. It sold for $6. :( they are expensive in the stores.

Hugs,
Debbie

I feel like it's zipping by really quickly too, and I'm not done decorating yet! I love all of your vintage Christmas goodies, especially that first Santa. I've been looking for one of those for a while too. Guess it's a good thing I've made myself stay off Ebay, or I might have given you a run for your money!
Happy VTT Sandy!

The colors of the vintage glass ornaments are so pretty. The reproductions just don't look the same. There is no patina on them.
It is nice that they remind you of your parents and childhood.

Happy VTT,

I have to admit, I have a crush on all Santas. So my favorites here are the santa salt and pepper shakers and the 3 santas candleholder. Lovely vintage items, all!

How lovely that you have some of your parent's treasured ornaments I hope you can pass them along some day!The little Santas are all so nostalgic, they don't look like that any more.

SueLovesCherries said...

Sandy, these are all great! I love your blog - you remind me of someone I know . . . oh, yeah, ME! LOL!

By the way, could you let me know where you got your signature? I love it - but when I click on it, it sends me to my own dashboard!
