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
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!
