Vintage Jackpot!

Welcome to Vintage Christmas Monday! I found some great pieces at a couple sales this week.

First I found this box of bells. I remember them in corsages. I'm not sure yet what I'll do with them but for $1.50 I had to bring them home!
I also found the gold colored tree topper. I got the other one several years ago. They work well in the glass bowl.

Lastly, I found these bottle brush trees and the snow girl candle holders. I've never seen a tree this tall before so I had to have it.

Aren't these little darlings adorable? I had to pay full price instead of waiting until the next day when the prices go down because I knew someone would snap them up if I didn't. I love them!

I've had these tiny books for a few years. I also got another one with them. I used that one in my Santa themed box.

An heirloom wooden bowl filled with cookie cutters sets on my kitchen counter. I know the red ones are vintage because we had them when I was young and I'm certainly 'vintage'!
To see more vintage Christmas posts, go over and visit Joan.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your little angels Jean,... I'd probably have paid money for those too! They are perfect! I don't go to sales any more,.. I'd rather get rid of stuff at this time in my life but those angels would definitely have come home with me! :)

Your bottle brush trees remind me of the trees that are part of my Christmas village. The trees look very similar to your trees, except mine don't have red bases.
