« Estate Sale Friday...A Few Things | Main | Collection Challenge #165 - Vintage Chenille Stem Flowers »

July 13, 2013



What a lucky duck you are! Scoring a bunch of goodies and then having a friend gift you with a bag full of vintage stuff you love! Great fun and great friends!!
Love those chenille chicks(wire feet). I have a couple of the larger ones too. I've been hoarding Putz houses for awhile now. Can never have too many of those. Glad you scored today!
Thanks for sharing :-)


How in the world do you manage to go to an antique show where things are for sale and end up coming home with amazing & FREE goodies? Oh yes, must be another part of the Magpie Ethel Magic:-)

Friends who understand our love of cute old things and who set them aside for us are the best, aren't they?



That does sound like a good day! Those eggs on stems are really cute!


Wonderful finds! I love the kitschy Christmas Elf scene!

Oh.My.Word. All those putz houses!

I had to smirk about the goodie bag. I have to wonder how many people set aside castoffs for you, as I am doing the same. There are those things not worth the trouble of listing, but are perfect for Magpie's stash...:)

The pixie stagecoach is the BEST find! love it!


Wowza, a whole village! I went to the Expo show once, long ago, and have not gone back. I get so overwhelmed there that I cannot buy anything because I think the next booth will have something I want even more. Silly, I know! I should go and plan to just look, maybe. In the meantime, I shall live vicariously through you. 8+)


Good things just come your way! It will be fun to see what you do with all these treasures!

I LOVE every little piece! Isn't it so much fun to re-do Putz Houses? Hope you got a great deal on such a large lot of them! I haven't seen the deer with the red collar either! Super cute. I'm starting my holiday crafting now! I'm just so in the mood!
Great Job on all all of your Holiday Finds!

Wow! I had as much fun looking at your new "old" holiday items as you did! What a great day for you! I think I love the holiday items the most!!! :o)
Love your Blog....check it every day!

I have that same light-up Xmas scene! Unfortunately the gold cardboard part was a wreck so I had to cut that off and then frame it. Never thought I'd see another one of those, but you seem to always find out of the ordinary stuff! Love those chicks in their little hats too!

Musings from Kim K.

How fantastic is that light-up Christmas scene! Good for you on rescuing it. You have the best of friends giving you all sorts of vintage holiday. Those chicks are adorable.




A Putz 'flipper', gotta love it!


A good haul, and a good friend!
