Thrift Share - Going Global

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!

Holiday Cheers ~ Lara


  1. Can't wait to see your chair post-reupholstery. Great little tree by the way.

  2. Lovely tree and globe collection, too! I like how the tree is placed on the table and it looks good with the decor, too!

  3. what a great globe collection I had one that light up and it was so lovely but I sold it on Ebay

  4. I have a slight globe obsession, and yours are very drool worthy. :)

  5. Great globes and of course I love the vintage decorations. I'm not usually a massive fan of a white tree but they've been growing on me since seeing other people's. They certainly show the baubles off well.

  6. AHHHH!!! I love these globes!!!!
