Last Saturday was our 'stockings' w/ my Mom & Dad!
'Santa' was VERY Good to me...
|...purse ashtray, Diamond Match Co match holder and a Souvenir metal change holder (kinda weird that it just happened to be a Missouri...)|
a Double "Tri-fecta"+ !!
|2 Haegers (2014 #3 & #4)|
|SIX (6!) Sweater Clips (2014 #8, 9, 10, 11, 12, & 13)|
|and Two (2!) VERA (2014 #10 & #11)|
|Imagine my giddiness when I uncovered|
A mid-century Tree Topper!
Aluminum reflectors (one is even aqua) !
'Fish-scale' ornaments in pink & blue!
an older Humpty Dumpty!!
At the same stop I found this GREAT VERA!! J saw it and stated 'SEAGULLS.' I tried to explain to him that since it was found in December, they MUST be 'DOVES'. I don't think he bought it.
Either way I Love finding unusual VERA graphics, and I had never seen this one before.
|VERA 2014 #12 (.25¢)|
As for decorating...
We did manage to get our Four major garlands w/ ornaments up before the stocking exchange (HAD to have things a 'bit' festive!)...
Since then, I have been rummaging through my hoardes and came across 'the box'. For the 11mo. during the year that the Xmas deco's aren't on display, I have 'this box'. When I'm out saling and find some 'Xmas Goodies' for ME, rather than pulling out the LARGE Totes and putting them in their proper homes, I just stash them away in 'the box'. Come December, when all the other decorations come out, I unpack 'the box' and incorporate it with my other treasures!!
LOTS of orange~pink~purple additions for a Dining Room Aluminum tree
|vintage light bulbs!|
bottle brush trees!
