A Red Vintage Christmas and some candy canes too!

Good grief! My last post was a Rednesday post too!! And it was more than a month ago! Sorry 'bout that but I think I'm back in blogland again...

This Rednesday I want to share a few vintage Christmas goodies that are just now listed in my Etsy shop. I love finding little treasures like these in thrift stores! (PS - click on the pics and you'll be whisked away to my shops!!)

I love this mug -- happy reindeer with bows on their antlers are just the best! And a great place to stash your candy canes (you know who you are, storing them in the back of the pantry where no one will see!)  So quit hiding them and let them experience a little Christmas cheer!

I found this red and white granny square pot holder in a tiny thrift shop but didn't get it. Then I found the green pitcher one a few days later in another shop -- went back to get the red one 'cause I thought they'd make a cute Christmas pair. Yay! it was there! The green one is so unique -- it's crocheted in the round so that it's open like an oven mitt. Wouldn't it look cute sitting on your bakers rack with some of those candy canes in it?

These cool Christmas ribbons are from the 80s (the RN number on the holly one indicates it might be from the 70s, but I'm not sure). Anyway, they'd be perfect for Christmas crafts or gift wrapping!

OK, no candy canes here -- but you could use the red and green patchwork ribbon to tie up a bundle of the peppermint yummies to give to your sweet-tooth neighbor....
