Holiday Cheers...Christmas is almost here!
(I've added lots of linky links on this weeks post so be sure to click &
check out the background & details on some of my finds)
This is our Baby Tree in the living room with my favorite Thrifted Vintage Ornaments.
I was afraid our bad dog Lucy would eat the big tree if I put it up!
(Notice my mid century chair has yet to be reupholstered! lol.)
I'm excited for Christmas this year because I'm preparing for a trip to KY to see my family (and my Mommy..YIPEE)!!! It's been over 3 years since I've been home for the holidays and I can't wait!
Unfortunately, I haven't even started shopping yet due to all kinds of craziness at work,
but I have managed to stop at a few thrift shops recently and look at some of the goodies I've found.
It's funny how themes develop. I've always enjoyed having a vintage globe or 2 sitting around the house, but in the last few weeks I've amassed several more for my collection.
This one is my favorite however, because it lights up and makes a rather beautiful statement at night! It's a Readers Digest globe from the 1980s and is in excellent condition.
I'm always buying art and really need to get the Thrift Art obsession under control...but I just couldn't pass up this lovely lithograph by LosAngeles/Mexican Folk Artist Esau Andrade. It's large (18X24) and nicely framed and for only $5 at the Goodwill it was certainly a steal.
|I suppose part of Frank Del Olmo's estate was certainly my treasure!|
Can't wait to see what goodies your sharing this week too, so I'll be linking up to Sophie's Flea Market Finds and Selena's Thrift Share Monday!
