Vintage cake/Christmas tags

Happy Tuesday!

Christmas is right around the corner! I love the sparkling lights,Christmas music,wrapping gifts,the smell of homemade Christmas cookies and shopping for gifts! All the JOYS!

I received a beautiful package from Sharon at My Vintage Studio. Sharon sent me four sweet Christmas tags and a lovely vintage Santa magnet! Thank you so much Sharon! What fun it was to receive after a long day at work! Thank you to Sue@ Suelovescherries.blogspot.com for hosting a beautiful Christmas tag swap!
I made my first tag which was great fun! I look forward to joining in another tag swap!

These cake mixes I bought are Jiffy cake mixes, what my gramma swears by. Ever since I was a liitle girl jiffy is what I'd find in the cupboard. Every birthday it was Jiffy! I agree they are delicious! These mixes have been hard to come by, they stopped selling them in the city grocery stores! I figured I'd look them up on line. I planned to purchase a case for $6.00 but the shipping was going to be $15.00. Outrageous! I then looked up where they were sold, smart idea I found them locally! Yeah! My gramma will be thrilled to get these mixes with her Christmas gift!

To me they actually look vintage! What do think? Does anyone use Jiffy cake mix? I bought a few for myself to try!

Thanks for stopping by! Please come again!

Have a wonderful and safe Christmas!

Vintage Christmas!

This weekend I was off to thrift! I realized I didn't have any vintage Christmas decor.No problem,I was off to salvation army and goodwill Saturday evening where I found some great Disney ornaments and a one of a kind adorable Santa at Home in his rocker with his dog! I love it! It also playS music and the rocking chair rocks! He's my favorite find! On Sunday, I was off to a thrift store and estate sale! I found a sweet angel and little Santa figurines. Just lovely! How about vintage dark pink set of bulbs! What great finds! I was quite pleased to add these vintage pieces to my Christmas decor!

I hope everyone is enjoying their pre Christmas activities!
