Thrifting for the Holidays





I'm excited about my latest thrifting scores. The little putz house, the vintage velvet bow headband, green velvet hat and red felt hat with little brass brad thingies are all so cute. I really was thrilled to find the Joan Walsh Anglund doll. It was a favorite of my little sister when we were small. She had hair just like this doll, and my father made her a dollhouse big enough to use with this size doll. The house was huge! I remember decorating it in secret for Christmas. I was jealous.
The elf shoe with the flirtatious pixie was my favorite find. I got even more excited when I saw a similar one used in the beautiful arrangements made by Jen Nichelle featured in the November 20th post on http://sweetnshabbyroses.blogspot.com. Jen sells on ebay as j.nichelle. Wow-she is amazing! I don't think I'm going to attempt to make anything with my shoe. I'll probably sell it on ebay, along with most of the other stuff I bought. I haven't listed anything for quite awhile, and I need to get busy again. Look for these items under bookscout27 on ebay, or contact me directly.
Everyone have a happy Thanksgiving!
