Vintage Christmas Monday

Good Monday morning everyone! Only 4 more days 'til Christmas!!!!
I am so excited to show you what I found a couple of weeks ago at a local antique store. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love elves and pixies, especially the Christmas ones. So I was practically quivering when I found these, praying that they would be affordable.
How cute is this??!!! It is a candle holder with elves on the sides. This was only $2.00! The two elves on top are just visiting, but they came in a baggie with a reindeer and a couple of vintage light bulbs for $1.00!
These are my favorite! One is a little deeper green, so he may not actually belong to the set, but he matches pretty good. In the background is a little plastic, vintage Christmas card holder. Of course this is an angel not an elf, but I fell in love with her sweet face and for only $2.00 I couldn't resist! When I was little we had a pixie just like this one. Exactly! I have no idea what happened to ours, but I was thrilled to get this one! These are a little newer than the others, but I liked them anyway and decided they needed to live with me too.

And then this weekend, my son insisted that I open one of my gifts, because I needed it right now. He didn't have to twist my arm, I was more than ready to start ripping the paper off and inside a toilet paper tube I found this adorable little fellow to add to my Christmas collection: He is only about two and a half inches tall and I just love him!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!

I love all your little elves. They were great finds. Thank you for sharing. I wanted to comment more on an earlier post about your title photo. I love it. I have a picture of me and my Barbie on my post. It wasn't until July when my mom got the film developed before she realized I was holding up my naked Barbie (side view) for the Christmas family photo. The picture was taken in 1964 and is one of my best Christmas memories. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
