An Unexpected Gift

I got such a nice surprise today from my friend Cecilia.  I had just finished cleaning up a mess from a toilet that overflowed and was pleasantly surprised to find a holiday gift waiting for me.  My friend Cecilia loves vintage Christmas items probably as much as I do.  She had wrapped up a candle that is sold at Anew Interiors Anew in Woodstock and tied on a vintage snowman ornament.  I have never seen an ornament like it.  It is beautiful!  I am touched and so excited.  I hung it on my silver tinsel tree where it belongs.  Most of the ornaments on that tree were purchased from Cecilia.  It was so nice of her to think of me.  She is my friend that I go treasure hunting with.

On another note:  I found this vintage Santa bank today.  I love it.  Santa is winking.  It will be for sale at Carriage House Antiques on Thursday for $26.99.  I am tempted to keep him......

I love to just sit and look at my decorated Christmas tree.  All of the tall trees at Menards were sold, but we did manage to find a blue spruce for $12.  It is so full and beautiful.  This year I chose to put on homemade/crafted ornaments and other favorites.  Every year its a new look.

Hope you find some time to treasure hunt!
