Christmas in July

The other day I came upon a fundraiser that was running all week, if I would have known about it, I would have been there the first day.  You could donate what you wanted, I came home with some Christmas goodies, some went straight to the garbage but I ended up with a few things and for that I'm happy.


This is what I saw right away, knee huggers, well, of course, I have to buy any of these I see and a dwarf, he's pretty cute too!!  I am feeling really lazy today, I couldn't be bothered to get my good camera out, these pics are all taken with my iPhone, for anyone following me on Instagram, a couple of them have been on there already. 



More cute vintage Christmas 




The angel isn't in the best shape, but her face was so cute, I can use her for something.


Finding some Made in Japan reindeer is always good!


I just love this picture I took of this Santa - I know a lot of people out there think these Santa's are creepy, personally, I like them!!!


Not too bad for a stop on the side of the road!!


I also bought this book which even though it's a teen book, I'm going to read it.  For any Canadians out there that grew up in the 70's, they might remember this CBC television series, "Adventures in Rainbow Country" which ran in 70/71 - the thing that is amazing to me now  is that I now live in the area where this show was filmed, "Rainbow Country" is close to where I live now - it's the North Channel area of Lake Huron -   that was a world away from Prince Edward Island at the time.    I opened the first page and there were local place names, this was a fun find!!

  4. Don't be showing me those pixies...I'll turn green! haha! I love the little guys on the sleighs, too. And I have 3 deer with bells that are kind of rubbery material. Are they like yours? I love finding Christmas any time of the year! Hugs!

  5. You are on a vintage Christmas rampage! You have to pick up a kneehugger whenever you find them reasonably priced. That's the rule!

    Have a great week!
