christmas in july...

While I was nestled away in the pines of Plymouth last week enjoying some r and r, I squeezed in a junkin' day.
I found some wonderful treasures that I am saving.
Not for a rainy day.
And, unfortunately, not for myself either.
I am saving them for an upcoming event at the shop.
Ssshhh, don't tell anyone yet! 

I will show you some things I am saving for my Christmas displays.
(No, this is not the upcoming event.) 
I know, who wants to think of Christmas in July?
But, when I find something that reminds me of the holidays and the price is right, I buy it...

I just loved the old green tins with their hints of red...

I can wait for the visions of sugarplums but the vintage holiday vignettes are dancing in my head...

One find that I am bringing in the shop tomorrow is this sweet old farmhouse curio cabinet...

It is handmade and perfectly imperfect...

I am bringing some other pieces in tomorrow as well.
One is a makeover piece and one is a piece I made.
I am saving them for White Wednesday so I hope to see you then!

Today I am sharing with Linda for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday over at Coastal Charm.
I have not joined in over there for a while so I am off to see what's going on!

Thank you for stopping by!

Cute tins, Sandi- I buy Christmas stuff all year long too...crazy because I DON'T have a shop.

I love that little curio cabinet with the chicken wire. I would probably paint those little hinges black if I had in in my home though- xo Diana

Sandi, Those are nice green shades on the cake tins. I love chicken wire on cabinets doors. Smiles to you, Susie
