Dear Santa, I Have Issues!

Dear Santa,
I have issues! say?
Issues with filling my home with
Today I took a look at the
local thrift store
and this is what I found...
A glass tree $1
A set of glass candlesticks .50 for the pair
A bag of snow .50
and a box of
gold and silver christmas ornaments. $1

Yesterday I made a stop at
at Big Lots
and found these trees.
$6 for 16
Now what did
I do with all
of these
wonderful items?
The trees and snow
added to my mantle.

I filled the glass tree
with a strand of pearl beads
and sat it on top of a bookcase
with one of
my many snowmen.

The glass bulbs filled
another thrift store find
which sat beside
an apocathy jar
which was found at Goodwill.

Dear Santa,

I can't help myself!

  5. Wow! Those were good buys and I love the way you decorated.

    Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

  6. It reminds me of a "winter wonderland"...I might stop at Big Lots to see if they have any trees left!

  7. Wow, you sure found some good deals. I have been looking for the little bottlebrush trees and every place around here is out of them and here you found 16 of them for almost nothing! (Unfortunately, no Big Lots in my area) I love how you have used everything...your mantle...I ♥♥♥ it!
