Rednesday - Christmas again?

It has been soooo long since I have posted anything for Rednesday.  I have some pictures taken, it's the motivation I lack.  Well, I have rededicated myself to posting, at least once a week.  C'mon, how hard can that be?  So, last week the garage sales finally started to pay off.  It's now a weekly ritual that my mom, my dad and I hit the sales.  It's a great day.  Coffee, talk and treasure hunting!

One thing I can seem to count on, Christmas.  I always find Christmas items (as my last post confirms.) This week didn't disappoint.  Half my haul was Christmas.

The candle has no cord, but how could I pass it up for 25¢?  The ornaments were a good score, that my mom found before me, but she let me have them, thanks Mom!  The Santa is kind of a sad story.  The lady told me it was her husband's when he was a boy, and now he's 40.  What?  He's too old for Santa?  I gladly took him home.  The dictionary was another 25¢ item.  I plan to use the pages for craft projects and making cards.  The trowel, another 25¢ item!  I hope to make something similar to Jane's towel holder, fun stuff!  I also scored a couple pillow forms, but I didn't think you needed to see a picture of those.

So, not a lot of goodies this week, but enough to wet my appetite.  This week looks to be good.  Lots of sales listed. so I hope I have a really great post for you next week.

In the meantime, make sure you head over to Sue @ It's a Very Cherry World.  Our wonderful Rednesday hostess.  You'll get your red fill for sure!


  1. Now I have serious suitcase and Santa envy. Great finds!


  2. Love the Santa! I would have bought the candle too - for 25 cents, why not....

  3. Hi Shelley,

    Thanks for the sweet comment at my blog and I agree.. I never would have believed that DDT thing if I hadnt seen it in that old magazine myself. It seems like a spoof, doesnt it? Your finds are great, that Plastic Noel Candle makes me think of all the great retro Christmas decorations my Grandmother had as a kid.. she had a candle like that and a big plastic santa to match :) Blessings!

  4. Once a week sounds good to me! I miss seeing your finds.

  5. Super cute things! You did well, and it looks like you didn't have to spend a lot! Love when that happens!
    Erica :)

  6. That Santa may give me nightmares but the candle eases my nerves with vinty joy.

  7. I want to see a post from you every day of the week! Just kidding, I'll take what I can get. Love the Christmas finds, but it's those suitcases that are really catching my eye!
    Not too many sales here this weekend. Maybe because of Mother's Day? I'll be hitting the flea market on that day!
