Here’s a fabulous display from one of my favorite dealers at last weekend’s Sage Farm “Dear Santa” show.
That’s a solid old mantel top with lots of molding, plus chippy paint in pale yellow and green. Comical red-hatted elves atop glass vases. “Peace” signs handpainted on old framed boards. Lots of greens.
And what’s that nailed up on the mantel?
An old wooden suit hanger in bright red! Wound with a string of vintage Christmas bulbs plus some tinselly sparkle and ribbon. And a cute little yellow elf glued securely on.
Do you love that as much as I do?

Today’s the last day for the Dear Santa show at the old Rollins building. We’ve sold a LOT but we still have plenty of vintage Christmas goodies:

Yes, yes, I KNOW it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. But at November’s Sage Farm show, there were a few corners that looked a lot like Christmas.
I snapped some photos of red & green. Take a look!

Thrifting has been good this week. I snapped up three pieces of vintage Hazel Atlas Platonite glassware in October colors. Since they’re not madly desirable they’d be hard to sell in our Dish Sister’s booth. I decided right away I’d re-purposed them as candles.
Years ago I bought boxes of pure beeswax candles on closeout sale from a famous housewares store/catalog. When they arrived I was disappointed to discover they were all a blah, mis-matched range of beige. I didn’t want to pay return postage so I tossed them in a drawer.
Yep, there’s more! Click here!
Ten ways to use a vintage fridge containerPosted: July 9, 2014 Filed under: Decor, Fun Finds, Home and Garden, What we collect | Tags: Fire King jadeite, jadeite, jadite, vintage refrigerator containers 10 Comments
Vintage fridge containers have gotten way more expensive in the past few years, especially the jadeite ones. But that’s no excuse for leaving them on a shelf to collect dust. Here are ten simple ways to use them.
They’re spectacular at hiding the last piece of cherry pie.
Unlike modern, flimsy see-through plastics, old glass fridge containers completely conceal the contents. That can be a very good thing if you have a good memory. Otherwise, you’ll have vintage leftovers with nice green mold. User beware!
Okay. That was too easy.
