My next find were the CUTEST reindeer's. I believe they were ornaments in their younger days. They are fuzzy little deers with long curly eyelashes. They must be young girl fawns as cute as they are!
Another find, this one at the local Wal-Mart and not the antique shop, was this happy fella. One evening while visiting my Sister, my son and I noticed this Santa sitting on her porch. We fell in love with him and planned on stealing him. But since that wasn't the nicest thing to do, not to mention she escorted us to our car once she heard of our plans, I decided I better just go purchase my own. For something made and sold by Wal-Mart, I must say I am impressed. He puts off the prettiest glow!
Maybe as the year's progress I will keep my antique shopping going and come across other wonderful items from years past. It is a little depressing though when you see things that you had as a kid in the antique shops, because that officially labels you as "Antique"! But, it does bring back great memories and helps spark a memory about things you already forgot about. My son loves to hear me say "I had that when I was a kid!" or "Mom had those dishes!". And I'm sure, one of these days, he will be able to say the exact same thing to his kids.
I hope you are staying warm wherever you are. If you are here in my hometown, you better stay inside! Besides, it's the week of Christmas and everyone deserves to stay in, drink something warm, cuddle with a blanket and watch a Christmas movie. Which movie will it be for you?
