He came after Christmas, I am starting to collect vintage Christmas blow molds….he is perfect!  I need to find some next year locally.

Another new blow mold, I have looked at these for a long time. I found one in it’s original warp but 30.00 was just too much!  This one was a lot cheaper.  I got the boot at World Market this year, so so vintage!  And anything with this much glitter is OK in my book!

S& P shakers from K-Mart…didn’t have any out this year.  They were on sale for less than 2.00!

I bought this at Kirkland’s, I love farmhouses, and with a RED door….but look what it does…….

I didn't know you called those things 'blow molds' but I do know I love them and if I was ever to see one I would grab it up for sure.

Thanks for sharing all your pretty red things! I really like the table runner. I don't put out all my Christmas decorations, and am running out of storage! But it sure is fun to look at all the decorations in blog land!
Maybe I should see about joining Rednesday. I love red things and have many! Is this a Wednesday? Are there rules some where?
Happy New year, and bless you in 2012

It's always kind of sad when you have to put away the Christmas stuff, isn't it?

That runner is fantastic, and so is the table under it! I love a good mystery, but I sure can't wait to see what's in that box!
Wishing you health, happiness and prosperity in 2012!

Lynn said...

I don't know what is in the box but it was 19.95 LOL unless it is a recycled box!! I love a good mystery too! I have four vintage blow molds! I have a big Santa face, a small snowman, a small candle, and a small set of carolers! I so love them! I bought the carolers at a yard sale for 1.00!! The snowman and the candle were rescued from my MI basement! The Santa head was a estate auction find from the early 90s!
Happy New year!
