Weekend Finds, Christmas Matchbox Swap

I have been pretty good about NOT going to estate sales as much as I would LOVE to! Did make it to a couple this weekend and found these Christmas Plates! I've been looking for something simple and found these. A set for 8 for $10.00, still in their boxes! They are called "White Christmas" by Sango. I'm Happy!

It was a good "chick" sale...lot's of new items from nice stores. The frog is a Lenox!

Fun vintage too :) I'm already thinking Valentines and Easter... ( I know, crazy!)

The linen is old and never used and a box of fun sewing things.

This "Beauty" is Lovely! Love the shape, the animal head and feet! It's a little tough on the top. Hubby may "fix" it...I'm okay as is and think it will look nice in the living room!

Pearl, from Pearl's Sentimental Journey and I did a one on one Christmas Matchbox swap and she included a few extras! Isn't the Santa sign sweet :) She the sweet Santa's "list"! She even made the little pencil from a match stick!

Here is the Birdie matchbox she made in green to match my Christmas colors:) She love to make mini ones too and had it filled with fun paper goodies to use for projects!

"JOY" is my favorite word and she include some "joyful" treasures!

More treasures...THANK YOU, dear Pearl! Take good care of yourself!

I finished my Christmas cards today and now just need to address them and put them in the mail!
I had my "duty" day at Auntie M's on Saturday and it was busy :) My shift was 12 to closing so I could go to an estate sale!

WOW, Christmas is just around the corner...are you ready??!!

EnJOY this Christmas Season!

You always find the yummiest finds! I haven't been out shopping for ages and we are not buying presents this year so I haven't even gotten to the mall! Actually a great feeling not having the pressure!
