Vintage Thingie Thursday - And SSS reminder!!!

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a really good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies on display that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

This week, I thought I'd show you a Vintage Treasure that belonged to my mother in law. When she passed away, my husband got these adorable Mr. and Mrs. Clause. My mother in law painted these and a few other holiday Santas that we have today.

I have not put these out in a few years, but this year decided I'd bring them out and they sit in my living room by my television....which by the way, is exactly where she always sat them when she decorated for the holidays! They are a real treasure.

If you are a Secret Santa.....don't forget to email me the delivery confirmation number from shipping your was the shipping date....and well, I may or may not have missed it myself...shhhhh, don't let St. Nick hear that!!! First thing tomorrow, I'll be standing in line at the post feel so much better confessing that to all of you....but seriously.....don't delay too long!!!

Please, please let me know when your package I can update the link like I did last year!! AFTER all the packages arrive, I will reveal who each swapper had as their secret Santa!! Hopefully, by Christmas, I will be able to reveal that information!!! Honestly, the fun part is about to begin....seeing what everyone got from their Secret Santa is so much fun!!!

I myself, really enjoyed shopping for my Secret Santa! It seems to be the highlight of the holiday season for so many. You just would not believe the emails I have received and stories some have shared. Many I can certainly relate to, and understand the joy and fun it is in shopping for someone else who may live miles and miles away. It is fun meeting a new blogger and trying to figure out what they might really is the most enjoyable part for me!! I am excited for my swap person to get their!!

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday!!!


  1. Thank you for hosting. I look forward to joining in whenever I have a post to share. I am decorating my office/workshop porch, 2nd year running so now it is my 'new' tradition.

  2. I love those vintage Santa/Mrs. Santa figures. Thank you for hosting Suzanne, I appreciate being able to join in. Have a wonderful week.

  3. How very special to have the Mr and Mrs Claus Figures. I love it that you have carried on your MIL's tradition of where they are placed. A special share and memory. I'm getting into my Christmas Quilt Decorating, and thinking I need to make another I don't already have too many...naw that's not possible! Come see!!!!

  4. Hi Suzanne! They are such sweet figures. I think it's great that you're using them just like she did.
    Thanks for hosting! Happy VTT!

  5. Hi, I just found you through Wanna Buy A Duck's sidebar blogroll. I've linked in - thank you for hosting. My crop of the image kinda went awry, ah well ...

    Please join me for my Countdown to Kitschmas!

  6. It's funny how sometimes you have something put away for a whole and then you think of it and want it out again!!

    Thanks for hosting, Suzanne!

  7. I mailed my package to my person today, the 7th.

  8. I do believe my package should have been received! I am waiting to see! Last year was a blast! I love shopping when I have a few clues as to what they like!

    I truly was blessed with Betty Daydream World last year! She made my shopping so easy! I miss not seeing her blog but I know her year has been a difficult one. I am glad I was able to get some things she really appreciated and was tickled pink about! Now if I can repeat that process this year! Hmmm....

    I am clueless who my Secret Santa is this year! I need a few clues! HAHA! Last year Marilyn at Heart Strings set me up nicely! I will always and forever think of her kind heart too! Plus those chocolate truffles were so yummy! I ate them for an entire week! I hid my stash too! HaHa!

    Suzanne you are a real doll for hosting! You have a wonderful kind heart and all your hard work has paid off in all of us making new friends! Thank you so much! Hugs Anne


Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
