It's the last day of Christmas break. Our company has gone, my husband and kids are at the gym, and I'm home alone putting away my Christmas decor. A little bittersweet. I always feel like the holidays fly by before I really get to sit and enjoy the little Christmas atmosphere I've created in my home. At the same time, I'm ready for a fresh start, and little order around here. Before I put things away until next year, I had to share my exciting thrift shop find. While shopping at a local Goodwill store for retirement party gag gifts, I decided to check out the clearance Christmas items. I'm always on the hunt for great vintage holiday finds, so I could barely contain myself when I saw these shiny gems on a top shelf!
The cashier said she actually pulled them out of the dumpster that morning. Someone had tossed them out, and she knew she had to rescue them! I felt like I'd won a little piece of the lottery! I showed them to my parents a couple days later, and my dad said they reminded him of the ornaments on his grandparents' trees. I love that. I only wish I would have found them before Christmas instead of after, but they'll be something to squeal over next year when I unpack all my vintage pretties. :)
Okay....enough chit chat. I need to get busy before my family gets home. I'm actually hoping to have a little time on Pinterest. I need some new decorating inspiration to start off the new year! :)
