We're back from another trip to Prince Edward Island - hopefully, the sad events are over and we can really enjoy a vacation when we go back the next time.
I scrounged through the house for Christmas items and this is what I came back with...sometimes it just feels like an antique market there - but way better, it's free and I remember all these things being used at Christmas when I was a little girl.
I'm showing the three sides to this music box that plays "Silent Night" - it belonged to my grandmother and is still in the original box.
There was a red candle in the middle but it was in rough shape so I'll have to get a new one.
Isn't it the cutest thing? The figures are rubber. Made in Japan
These tiny little gift bags were in the box with the music box - they have string at the top and are stamped - Made in Korea
Santa and his Reindeer - stamped - Japan
DoubleGlo Tinsel Garland - 39 cents - as advertised in LIFE
This box was marked down to 53 cents
Two of Mom's Christmas corsages
I never heard of the term Putz until I started reading blogs, I guess that is what these are - we always had these, I have a bunch more - stamped - Japan. I love the big Christmas tree, it even has real balls on it.
My first stocking - I had this forever, until Mom made us all stockings
I bought this at a little shop in Maine on the way home - everything upstairs was half off - I paid $1.00 - I guess it's an ashtray, I just thought it was so cute.
I was so happy to find this Santa blowmold at an antique shop in Vermont - he's about 13 inches tall - I paid $15 - it's stamped - Empire Plastic Corp, 1968. I never see things like that around here, I didn't mind paying that for such a nice Santa.
Today I'm linking up with the Thriftosaurus Thrift Haul and Apron Thrift Girl. And, of course, lots of reds - so, linking up with Rednesday
