~Someone's Treasure~

I love thrift stores as much as my mother did.
She couldn't stop by one without 
running in for 5 minutes.
It was that look in her eye and excitement she had.
I now 
know how she felt.
Every time I'm shopping for that one treasure,
 I think of her.
I couldn't resist finding these 
vintage Christmas ornaments.
They just don't make them like they used to.
The colors and designs seem to bring back wonderful memories.
I'm so glad I stopped for
 5 minutes at the thrift store.
I love this one,
 A Shooting Star. 
Sending Happy Christmas Thrift Shopping To Everyone!
Hope you find a treasure too!

  9. Love those ornaments! I haven't seen any of those since I was a little girl and we had them on our tree!

  10. I hear you!! Five minutes well spent. Some days I find nothing, other days I can't believe my luck. It is always worth the five minutes. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous ornaments with us! :)

  11. Very smart way to use some time, they don't make them the way they used to anymore. Love this display.

  15. That ornament with the pink in middle with greenish-gray band...? Had one like that at our house when I was young ( my mom's tree ) They were probably common in that style back then but wow, I have seen that one before. What fun to see it again! :)
