Please don't look at my last post date...it was over a month ago! I had to take some time off. I don't do well when I have a lot of my plate. I'm not a good multi-tasker. This last month of school has just been crazy! It all comes to an end this Friday...summer vacation. I am one happy mama!
One more thing that makes me happy? REDNESDAY!
A big thank you to our hostess Sue at Sue Loves Cherries. It's a great way to get to know other bloggers!
I have lots of Christmas to share today. I always gravitate towards holiday decor. I struggle collecting everyday items, but the holidays? I'm always in the mood to buy! I bought all these items at an auction last month.
My favorite? Well, I LOVE these Josef Originals elves. I should have taken a photo of the labels. They all have their original labels. I have only the basic knowledge of Christmas collectibles. I've never heard of Josef Originals. They are made in Japan...that's always a good sign.
In the same box as the elves came this squeeky toy, marked Ninchira? Japan. He looks good. I thought about selling him...now I'm not so sure.
Again, in the same box, Noel Angel candleholders. Only marked Japan. OK, I'm fairly certain I won't keep these...I have to recoup my costs and part with something!
Not bad for one box, huh? I bought two other box lots with some Christmas.
Some plain Shiney Brites. I only paid a buck, so why wouldn't I buy them? The basket was an unintentional score. I didn't even notice it until I got home. I decided it will be awesome for gathering veggies from the garden!
OK, I know this last item isn't red, but I bought it on the same day and it fits my Christmas theme. It's my wild card item. When I won the bid for $1 and took the Shiney Brites, I decided to take a chance on this for $1. A revolving Christmas tree stand. It was so dusty. I thought I was throwing my buck out the window...no way it was going to work. Well, you guessed it...it DOES work! It has three settings: revolving, playing music and revolving and playing music! Super Duper Score! This might be better than the elves! I can't decide...they both make me smile a lot!
