MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL Below is my early Christmas gift. We heard about a company that was closing it's doors and that there items were 70-80% off. We found this 8 X 10 rug for our living room. It's a wool and silk blend. Since we have hardwood floors on the entire 1st floor, well it's cold in the winter and this should help.

On Saturday morning it was snowing and the road were icy....but husband said he was going to the 2nd day of an estate sale. I was thinking I wanted to stay home, relax and stay in my PJ's..right...I HAD to go with him. Below are the treasures we found and 20% off.

I'm thinking about Valentine's day and found somethings to sell at the booths:) Cute boxes. Old books and newer Valentine tins.

Above you see the cutest little purses. A sweet puppy and kitty purse. Love them:) A stack of 3 Valentine boxes and the sweetest little cookie cutters. I remember these when I was a child:)

Cute kitty puzzle. They are having a tea party. The box says it's a wooden puzzle from England. Love it:)
I'm all ready for Christmas. Kailee has "winter" break and I'll be having her here on Monday and Tuesday and maybe we'll have a little Tea Party.
A little update on my FIL. He is home and had his first chemo on Friday. That's all I know and will know more after Christmas.
Winter hugs to you all. I'll see you next Sunday.

Hey Deb!
Oh I love the rug that you found on sale wow what a deal. The other vintage finds are wonderful too...yep, sounds like me and Robert...honey, I don't think even ice would keep us away from an estate sale either. LOL! I will be ready for my new public blog reveal and etsy shop reveal...just shortly after Christmas. I've been working day and night on it. I'll tell you a little about etsy...they do let sellers post under vintage category old stuff that's at least 20years or older. I was happy to find that out, because I have alot of old stuff. LOL! For the longest time, I thought etsy was just for handmade things. I am glad it's for both. Honey I have already bought a limoges china little porcelain shoe today from etsy. It's so cute. I hope I don't buy more than I sell. LOL! Well, I can tell you, from my experience so far... It's alot easier to list on etsy than ebay I can tell you that much. Go to and you can learn all about setting up a shop. It's really nothing to it. I can tell you that the fees are less with etsy than with ebay also. That would be a wonderful place for you to sell. I'll be talking to you again soon! I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas...stay warm!
A big hug from me to you,

Morning, Deb! Merry Christmas Eve!
