This set of brand new Frank Lloyd Wright holiday cards cost $2.99 for 20. I hate spending big bucks on cards when most of them end up being glanced at and then discarded shortly thereafter.
In a bag with a $1.99 price tag, I found two boxes of Christmas tree ornaments. Some of the ornaments were kind of ugly, like the fuzzy ones and the disco balls. But...
I also found some stunning vintage ornaments, like this aqua-coloured decoration.
It's got a concave centre. See?
with Santa painted on it. So sweet.
Graphic designs...and hand-painted swirls where you can still see the brush strokes.
I've never seen daisies on a Christmas ornament before.
Here's the second box. I even love the beaten up old box.
Made in Poland. For goodness sake!Again, a strange mix of the gaudy with the gorgeous. We thrifters have to be magpies.
and again - ta-dah!
Aren't these beautiful?
So that's it, folks. Thrifty droughts don't last forever. It's all down to timing that you can't control.
Here's Kate Bush's Christmas song. I know, I know. Any excuse to play Kate Bush.
