A Nifty Thrifty Christmas

Hello and welcome to day 2 of  'Creating Christmas'.
 
 
Today the party is being hosted by Cecilia.  Hop over to
 
to share your thrifty ideas or Christmas thrift finds.
 
I love using thrift find treasures in my Christmas vignettes!
 
 
Mixing the old with the new makes for a wonderful combination!  The minty coffee pot, the enamel lidded cup, the miniature nativity, and red clock were all scored at thrift shops.  I had a lot of un mixing them into my plaid theme.
 
 
The deer was just scored a couple of weeks ago.  The skates were found at the Salvation Army in Wisconsin 6 years ago.
 
This sweet flocked deer is another recent find and is quite large.  Love it!
 
 
 




It's really hard to get a decent photo in my kitchen window.  I picked up the silver cooler recently for $4.  The thermos and deer are older finds and the batter bowl came from an estate sale.
 
A couple of vignettes in my candy/gingerbread themed
 basement kitchen.
 
 
The pitcher was found at a consignment shop and the little candle was $1 thrift cutie.
 
Santa mugs and coasters.  Perfect thrift finds for my basement!

 
I put together this little vintage basket for my basement bath from odds and ends picked up at thrift shops.
 
 
I like having a cocoa bar for the holidays.  This year I teamed up cocoa and Campbell's.  Why?  Because I have scored a lot of Campbell's items lately and after all, it's mmmmmmm good!  :)
 

The smaller tins hold cocoa and the larger one holds marshmallows.
 
 
I hung some Campbell's mugs from my French drying rack and a Campbell's ornament.  I have a collection and will be adding more, just haven't pulled them out yet.

 
And just for 'old time' sakes.  I'll end with this vignette on my kitchen island.  I just picked up the Snowdrift plate and it was perfect next to my cookie jar!
 
They are really colorful, but for some reason I felt inclined to share them in black and white.  lol!
 
 
Wishing you all a very Thrifty Christmas!
 
Remember that the link party will stay open until Dec. 24th.  So you can still share your Silver and Gold Christmas over at 
 
hugs,
Jann

You have some lovely things there but I adore the little chalk board. I plan to look out for one. Or maybe make one using a child's chalk board from the £1 shop
