Somethings: Vintage Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

...and thank goodness because I've been dyin' to put out all of my newly thrifted decorations. Especially my most favorite find of the entire summer -- This VINTAGE TURQUOISE TONKA TRUCK!!!!!! 

I just adore it! And it will not be put away after Christmas. Oh no, that tree in the back will be replaced with Valentine'a candy, Easter eggs, American flags, and pumpkins. 

These actually hang on the wall in C's vintage sports room, but they would make
great Christmas decorations.

I found this one last summer. Bought it for my friend Gretchen for 1 DOLLAR!

This is NOT a thrifted find (it's from Pottery Barn Kids for $6.50), but I felt it was
appropriate to include given my minor bottle brush obsession and my
recent post about this unknown (at least to me) world of bottle brush animals.

I thrifted these last year. I'm thinking of yanking them right off that
wreath though and  actually wearing them.

Oh Garage Sale Season, how I miss you already.

  6. Oh my! I love the truck! I have 5 Goodwills & a huge salvation Army in close distance of my house. Not to mention the many Goodwills I pass in my 80 mile one way commute to work everyday! Never have I had the luck of finding a Tonka Truck. I'm Turquiouse with envy! Score! :-)
