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 clearance...it 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.

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!
