Flea finds

I got to the flea market late today so I wasn't really
expecting to find much.

My family had these exact plastic Santa's
when I was younger.
Guess what my brothers are getting for Christmas...hint,

Vintage ornaments, Lefton S&P owls...Mr. Owl
has his red bow broken but that's ok.
More deer to my collection.

Shabby Chic Joy garland.
Another treasure that I grew up with was the Santa
cookie original sits on my counter right now.

Wooden stamp blocks...lots and lots of them!!!
I can't wait to play with them...check
out the micro mini ones.

A whole container of Mistletoe scented Yankee candles,,,
The house is stinking purty as I type this...

My biggest smallest find...
A petite lady head vase to add to my collection...
she is missing an earring but that is easily fixed.

Did you find any goodies this week?

My Antique Emporium room

Merry Christmas!!!
I have been busy decorating my room
at The Antique Emporium.

Yes, the pom pom Christmas tree is a bit tall
but I was so excited to display it.

been added...

Lots of vintage Christmas aprons,
tablecloths and even a pair of
old leather mittens.
Oh and check out the pretty cool
telephone table...

is pretty cool to display items.

I am happy to say that the

Happy Thanksgiving with Flea finds

Happy Thanksgiving!!

After a couple days of baking

fresh pumpkin bread, black Russian cake,
rice krispie bars, spice/pumpkin muffins (hubby took to work) and
pumpkin cookies (gifted to neighbor)
I was so ready for today's flea market!!

Ohhh what fun it is to come across these Christmas

I even had a vendor wanting to trade for something
in her booth for these...haha

Lots of found goodies...the 1946 Bible is
so worn and loved...a keeper for sure!
The expressions on the deer is what drew me to them...
I had a piggy bank like this one...

Do you remember the 1970's Knockers/Klackers?
I remember the bruises on my wrist and arm area...haha

My hubby and I have an on going competition as to who
can klack them far I am in the lead....

This unusual talking Santa card is really cool!
You pull and scrape the plastic ribbon and it makes
a sound that says "Merry Christmas"
It's also signed by John and Jackie...could it be? Nawwwww

I love this green tray...a treasure for sure
and it all looks so pretty with my new found

But the biggest find of all is this Pom Pom
silver tree!
I looked for one at Rennigers in Mt. Dora this last
weekend but nothing.

It's still wrapped up and with original ad.

It will be displayed with vintage ornaments at my space
at The Antique Emporium with a big
NFS sign on the tree...hahaha

Happy Thanksgiving friends

Washstand and Chandy

I have been eyeing this wash stand
for the last couple of days at the estate sale and
after much deliberation, it was
paid for and now stands pretty
with my ironstone.

Ugh...please help me...
I am undecided on which
chandelier I like better...
The one above has more chunky crystals
with lots of hard lines.
I didn't add the needed crystals/lights just
in case it comes down this weekend.

This one has more brass but lots
of crystal strands and prisms.
It's more foo fooey...

What do you all think?

Santa and JD box

A couple of items I bought
at this weeks estate sale.

This is a cute Santa Claus apron
with a large tablecloth
and two candy cane napkins.
Keepers? Not sure yet...

I was wishy washy on this Jack Daniels box
but finally decided to bring it home.
It's going in one of my boys rooms.

The estate sale we are working on is super will see more come home at
the end of the sale.

Life is good,

Happy November

Did you all have a Happy Halloween?
We enjoyed watching our youngest
carve his pumpkin all by himself,
then I spent the rest of the evening
taxing my oldest back and

I am sad to see the month of October I have to put my Halloween
decor away???
Can I hide a couple of skeletons
in the Christmas tree...maybe put
some Christmas hats on their bony heads..


then it's Christmas time
with a little Thanksgiving in between.

DH mentioned he wanted to start
putting up lights early this year...
wonder if next weekend is a bit

Jingle bells...jingle bells...hmmmm..hmmmm

No Bah humbug here!!!
