In a One Horse Open Sleigh

I'm still trying to decorate for Christmas.  If I can do one table or section of a room at a time, it's fine.....but I'll see something and think about putting it in my son's room, or maybe that would look better on the china cabinet, etc.  Distracted is a gentle way to put it!  Slowly but surely I'll get it done.  I did finish the piano last night.  For some reason, sleighs have been abundant at my favorite thrifts, so of course at the right price - cheap- they come home with me.  Here are a few of the ones I've scored lately.

My little kneehugger from the thrift last week is sitting in a wooden fold up sleigh from Habitat Restore. 

Some vintage flocked reindeer from a thrifted grab bag stand beside a plastic reindeer that has an upcoming date with some glitter.  He needs a little sprucing up.

Hope you all are having a great week so far.  Thanks again to all my followers!  When I finally finish decorating, I can sit in my finished Christmas room and catch up on all your blogs.


  1. I love your vintage Christmas stuff. I saw a sleigh at a thrift store yesterday and almost bought it but then put it back on the shelf telling myself I had too much stuff already!! But can you ever really have too much Christmas stuff :-)
    Have a great day.

  2. Oh vintage Christmas stuff, you can never have too much! Now I want a sleigh! Wait I might have one? no, don't think so, so it's OK to make another thrift store stop, right???


I love to hear from you!
