Home Sweet Home #39

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I have been really ready to start showing off Christmas on this blog.  I will start slow this week and just show you some great finds I have been coming up with at the thrift stores.

First, I have been on a real streak at the thrift stores.  I looked everywhere last year for vintage ornaments in pink.  I could not find them anywhere.  This year I checked the Salvation Army and I found 5 bags of them, many the most fantastic shade of pale pink.  The cost for all 5 bags $ 4.75!  
Don't you love the pink!!

And, then I scored a bit of sheet music, much of it Christmas.

This piece of music was an original 1942 copy of Irving Berlin's White Christmas.  

Then, I found these molds.  I am seeing these decorated a lot of ways on the French and Nordic blogs.  Do you like them?  I can see some possibilities with them for Christmas.  They were $1 each.   This all on top of the fact that I found a real mercury glass vase also...on had been sitting on the thrift store shelves 3 months to go on clearance.  I won't even tell how cheap I got that.  This has been my lucky week thrifting.

Now, I would like to feature some wonderful post from Home Sweet Home from the last week.  

First,  Miss Kopy Kat's  tutorial on aging paper was very good.  Click the link to view.

 Michelle, at Hello Lovely, Inc.  showed us her home.  Which was beautiful.  Click the link to view.

Barb, at Keeping Up with the Times  had a very nice Halloween vignette.  Click the link to view.

And last, Amber over at Junkaholics Unanimous hit just the right theatrical amount of creep factor with her Creepy Doll Head mantel for Halloween.  It was just too creative, I had to highlight it!

Thank you to all who join me at Home Sweet Home!  It is awesome to have you here!

Hi Sherry,

I love the pretty vintage ornaments you found, and the wonderful sheet music. We are pretty musical at our house (especially our son) so I love sheet music, particularly Christmas music. I know you'll enjoy those beautiful ornaments; they look so much like some that my Mom has.

Thanks for hosting and have a great day!

Thanks for hosting. Wow you start early on the Christmas decor huh? My sis and I are always super late and then the decor stays up until February lol.

Scribbler said...

I DO love the pink ones. I remember my first Christmas tree when I was out on my own: a silver tree with pink lights and ornaments! I won't tell you what year that was...

Thanks for hosting the party.

Shirley said...

WOW! these ornaments are so beautiful. I love the plan old fashion balls. And the way you captured them is so stunning. A beautiful feast for the eye..Christmas time is a great time..

Love your ornaments~ I am decorating for the Holidays already!! Thanks for hosting :)

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) said...

Your vintage ornaments are perfect and what a deal! I really like the molds too, but my favourite piece has to be the sheet music. I've been looking for that with no luck so far. Great features too. I just posted a new Christmas magazine I bought and a trio of cute farmyard ornaments.
