Not So Recent Finds!

Most of these date back to our favorite New Year's Weekend Flea Market/Antique Show but better late than never, right?

Christmas Day

Latest Christmas Day post ever! So busy...but better late than never right? Here are some random pictures from Christmas Day at our house! Mom doesn't look too sickly for a gal with pneumonia but it was a hard day for her! She sat on the sofa and opened her presents but the next day she had to sleep for the entire day! The cats weren't too interested in their gifts but we tried to get them to pose anyway! Once again, we were blessed!

A Very Special Christmas Gift

A dear, sweet customer of mine sent me the most wonderful Christmas gift! What a surprise! A vintage 1940s book of uncut Christmas cards similar to the old fashioned books of valentines for children! I've never seen one of these before and I can't wait to add it to my vintage Christmas collection! Thank you Jane, you sure do know what I like!!!!

We Aren't The Only Ones

During the Christmas holidays, we were invited over to friends of ours. They collect vintage Christmas, trains and other wonderful items and had been to our open house last year and this year! Diana fixed a delightful homemade spaghetti dinner and then we were treated to a tour of their house and their collections! After several hours there, we went down the street to their friend and neighbor Paul's house (we were invited to see his holiday and toy collections a year ago and never had made it over, then we found out they knew him too!) What a small world and a great evening!
