What We Found This Weekend!

This weekend the thrift stores and yard sales seemed to be chock full of Christmas stuff already!  We of course don't mind finding some Christmas goodies but there wasn't much Halloween/Fall/Thanksgiving goodies to be found!

We found another set of salt and pepper shakers to add to our Christmas shaker collection!  They are just too cute and will look lovely with the rest of our sets! 


We found this plastic santa which has the cutest little face!


This Santa wall plaque is so adorable with his rosy cheeks and a hint of silver in his beard!  We don't know the maker but it does say Made In Japan.  He will look great in our kitchen this Christmas!

We found this strand of foil Christmas lights, we couldn't believe they all worked!



What did you all find this weekend?

What great finds. I went out to a couple garage sales this morning and they where both duds. :( But I did make so great buys at the quilt store $4.99 a yard Yeahhh.

Fabulous finds! That Santa plate? We had that when I was growing up in the early 70s. I think we used it as a Christmas ashtray. Can you believe that? Hmmm....wonder where it is now? I'll have to ask my mom.

Happy Thanksgiving!
