Fun Finds - The Christmas Addtion

It's been a while since I've had a Fun Finds post.  I have been finding so many Christmas themed items lately I thought a Christmas addition Fun Finds was in order.

Lets get started with this adorable truck from Target.  I like it's vintage feel.

I was shocked and pleased at the same time to find two vintage deer at the thrift store.  I had a work hard at stopping myself from doing a happy dance right in the store.

Aren't they adorable!

And speaking of deer, this silver deer tassel was found the next time I went to the thrift store.  I think it's adds a nice touch to the grapevine wreath.

This next item may seem ugly to some I'm sure but it makes me smile.

So do these vintage candles.  Cute right!

I was so happy to find this vintage candle surround too!  Again, ugly to some, but not to me.  After the deer, it's my favorite find of the season.

Of course I couldn't pass up some vintage Shiny Brights.  I found quite a few this year.

My favorite are the red ones of course!

But then there are the blue ones that are oh so pretty too!  Don't you just love the bell shaped ones?

A shelf in the basement received quite a few new vintage items this year.  The Santa boat filled with wonderful plastic filler, the Santa figurine and the two small deer.  The deer standing up is missing a leg but that's ok, I still love him.

And finally, this sweet white porcelain basket filled with vintage trimmings was too cute to pass up.

Oh My!
Almost forgot to add Santa to the list.  
Found him back in early November you may remember.  He's been cheerfully lite up in the front yard since December first.  The my kiddos aren't very impressed but my seven year old nephew sure is.  He is all excited every time he sees Santa in the front yard.

I am so happy to have found so many wonderful vintage items for Christmas this month.

Have you had any luck?

  12. So many fun finds! I love the little truck! (I was just at Target, but didn't see them-bummer!)

  13. Nothing at all ugly in this post. I bought a similar pick up truck in country blue at Target, did not find this wonderful red one there. I have all my late mother's plastic candle rings. I use them too. Merry Christmas! Mary

  14. Oh Robin, I am right there with you when it comes to the adorable little big eyed deer, the vintage plastic items, I LOVE them! I have only found a couple of little vintage items, but I enjoy the hunt, like you do. I have not seen any deer at the thrift store, I would have snapped them up fast if I had.
    You have a great thrift store or stores near you. How wonderful and fun for you!
    Have a good weekend!
    Hugs, Cindy
