Collecting


A trip to a thrift store yielded this instant collection.  Love.

Oh, I've been drinking hot cocoa out of these mugs every Christmas eve since I was a kid. I found my own set at a thrift store for my own family. Love. I think my dad's family started the tradition so its been going for at least 50 years. crazy.

I have one of these, but that's not a collection. Love yours!

How fun is that! Great finds. They are so charming and nostalgic. Once again, I'm impressed with your thrifty shopping.

That brings back memories. I'm hoping I get my Mom's collection one day. I'm going to have to give her a call. :)

What a find. I have a teapot I could send to you as my darling girl finds creepy. I adore it but can't put it out. ;)

I bet hot chocolate in those mugs is nom nom delish.

Enjoy. :D

I have one of those too. Don't believe it has ever been used, just as a decoration.

Looks like a lot of us have these Santa head mugs....I wonder where mine are?

Happy Sewing and Merry Christmas

My Mom had a set of these along with the pitcher and I was lucky enough to get them. They come out every Christmas. I'm always looking for more and have added to the collection over the years.

I seem to find these periodically at the local thrift shop too. I think I have 3 or 4 right now. They are so cute aren't they? This year I got a rocking Santa that looks like he could be part of the party too.
