July is almost over, and I didn't want to let it go by without sharing the Christmas items I found at yard sales this month.
The Santa and sleigh caught my eye, well mostly the sleigh. Santa will need a makeover if he stays, a much paler shade of red....almost a pink...lol!
The sleigh will probably get painted white. I snatched him up when I saw he was only $5.
This is one of the prettiest metal sleighs I've seen in a while.
This is the biggest ceramic tree that I've ever seen. I bought a smaller white one last year for $4, this one was only $3. The birds that came with it are multi colored, so I will need to order in some clear ones.
I would like to be able to use this wreath topiary year round, so it will get a makeover in colors that go better with my decor. I got it at Ky's 4th grade teacher's yard sale for $2.
I'm using Santa's sleigh as a book holder.
This Christmas book caught my eye.....it was published in the year that I first met H. I picked up a whole stack of these books in a free pile, the rest of them were gardening books from the mid 60's.
The plate holders on the hoosier aren't exactly Christmas.......
They are kinda Christmas since I can use them on buffet tables around the holidays. They are headed out to the garage to get sprayed with a fresh coat of white paint.
I love to Christmas shop at yard sales in July.......everything is always so cheap.....people just want rid of it!
