Christmas Red

Isn't this red elf shoe cute?   I paid 50 cents for it at a thrift store - it's ceramic, I don't know if it's a handmade one or not, it has W65 and Canada on the side.

I paid $2 for this bag of wooden ornaments - I'm going to put them on a wreath.

When the snow comes to stay, we'll be able to measure it!  I paid $1 for Mr. Snowman.

I bought this postcard on Etsy - it came all the way from Belgium - I love it!

I haven't bought a tin of cookies in years - two things made me buy them - the tin and the name McVitie's sounded so familiar, now I know where I read the name in the past few months - Prince William had McVitie's make the grooms cake for his wedding.  The cookies are made in the UK  and they're quite tasty!

I've never seen tiny little napkins like this before, they're 6 x 6  and made by Hallmark.  I hate to open them - I paid a whopping 25 cents for them.

Do they even make these kind of Christmas tags anymore?  They came in the cardboard box and were made by Regal.  I used to sell from the Regal catalogue when I was twelve - maybe I sold a box like this to someone - way back when..  I've used a couple of them already..

This is about the ugliest ornament I've ever seen - can you imagine hanging that up??  I bought it for the elf - I've since thrown everything but the elf away, he's sitting on my Memory Tree now - I blogged about it here.

This is a true red post - every picture has a speck of red in it.  Check out everything red at Rednesday.  I'm also linking up to Oasis Accents for the first time  - check it out.  And, of course Flea Market Finds - always so many neat things to check out from so many thrifters.


  1. You have some amazing finds here , I love them all !

  2. I love those wooden ornaments! Great deal for $2 and I can't wait to see how your wreath turns out.

  3. I totally remember having hallmark stickers with the snowman on your napkins! I loved them. And, I'm envious of the other finds as well, esp. the gift tags

  4. I will not admit to being around in the days when we sold cards from a catalog, door to door but I do remember the elf.

    Lovely red finds in every photo.

    Maybe someone will slip a treat into your elf slipper on Christmas eve...

  5. Wow! You found some great vintage stuff, and such great prices, too.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  6. The elfin boot is way too cute!


    Sing a song of scarlet—
    Red on Christmas morn!
    Sing a song of scarlet—
    Blue is so forlorn!
    Sing a song of scarlet—
    Red for girls and boys!
    Sing a song of scarlet—
    Look at all those toys!

  7. Hi Jill! Wow, you are a thrift shopper after my own heart. You found some fantastic treasures. The little beverage napkins are soo cute. They are great as a coaster or as a snack napkin. For a quarter, you can afford to use them ;)
