It's 4:15AM and I'm wide awake. Ugh. I'm a bit out of sorts I guess. My R.A had been just terrible for a couple of weeks, so I finally broke down and took prednisone. Yuck! But I was desperate for some relief, and I so wanted to enjoy the month of December and everything that it brings.
Well, I instantly felt better after taking it, so I shouldn't complain. But the side effects aren't so fun. Like major insomnia for one! So here I am, catching up on posting at 4AM!
The other day I got out of the house for a bit and went to the thrift store and to one of the antique stores in town. My grand total for the shopping trip was $14.00, and here's what I got! I don't have a record player (yet) but this cover was too cute to pass up for a quarter!
Very rarely do I buy anything Christmas/Holiday related that isn't vintage. But I loved the velvet and foil leaves on this card holder...and I really do need somewhere so store my vintage cards.
Five vintage molds for .75 that I can use to make ornaments, and paper-mache boxes that will soon be decorated and for sale in my Etsy shop!
I'll just "hoard" this away I think! LOL
These were .50 for the pair. For the most part I have stopped collecting Pyrex, so these are for my shop.
I was really excited to find these deer still in their package. They're already on my tree! And I'll "hoard" these vintage napkins away too...for someday down the road when I have an actual place of my own and can set a Christmas table!
These little things were at the antique store. I didn't have a ceramic tree (heaven forbid), and I like this little version. I've already glued glass mercury beads to the branches, so I'll have to show you how it turned out. I've also added a spun cotton Santa head to this corsage. I love those green glass pine cones!
I HAVE started decorating, it's just slow going. And it's a little (OK I'll be honest) A LOT frustrating that I don't have my own place to decorate. I didn't plan on being at my parent's house for this long, but three years and two surgeries later...here I am.
I'm sure hoping that 2013 is amazing! :)
OK, Good Night my friends...or should I say Good Morning?
Noel wants to show you her favorite ornament. :)
