I Will Honour Christmas In My Heart

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.
I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future.
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!

Christmas Finds at the Flea Market!!

 Today along with my regular weekly linky parties, I am linking up to the Countdown to Christmas Linky Party over at The Journey Back, hosted by Sherry!!
Sherry hosts a weekly Christmas Linky Party every Tuesday!!

Also, I am a day late for Rudolph Day, the 25th of each month!!
 Last week, I assisted in running our Church Flea Market.  We had a 4 car garage filled with donated items that were not priced when they were brought down into our Parish Center!!!

This is what it looked like at first...... 

  Myself and a crew of at least 15 people for 3 mornings turned that into this.......
Amazing!! And what a fantastic group of workers and friends I have!!

I will be posting more about the Flea Market and what came home with me in a day or so on my regular Blog and when I do I will add a link here......

But I do want to share with you some of my Christmas Finds!!!

First off, is one of 2 gold table toppers......
Our Church is having a Harvest Tea in October where a hostess picks a theme and decorates her tables/tables according to that theme.  Mine for this year is White and Gold Christmas!!

More goodies......
Loved this white and gold Santa!!
And this pink one too!!
He was sitting in a chair which was broke but I can easily find somewhere else for him to sit!!
Yes, he was a mere $1.00!
You can always use shatterproof balls!!
And bell ornies with snowmen painted on them!!

And snowball looking ones too!!
And I also bought this set of 4 place mats which will go well in my Kitchen all year round as my Kitchen is red.......
And they are reversible and will work well for Valentine's Day too!!
Look at this sweet light up snow man!!
And the gold piece of fabric that he is sitting on!!
These towels looked like they were hardly used......
I washed them up and they will look great in my Powder Room when it is decorated with Snow Buddies!!
So those are my new Christmas Treasures!!
I think I did pretty good, don't you????

  1. Love these Christmas goodies.I am finding Christmas things in Thrift shops too! I am saving them for my auntie's room at her Nursing Home.She's only been there 4 months and is finding it hard to adjust at times.

  2. Debbie you did awesome with your Christmas finds. My favorites are your pink Santa and the lighted up snowman.

  3. Wish I could have been there! I linked for you. Sorry it was late. Looks like you had a great sale. I can't wait to see the pics from the Tea. I know they will be great. Our ladies group did that one year in the spring. It was so much fun! Thanks for planning to link!
    You have a month of to get your Christmas links all up! Have anything for Fall?

  4. Hi! I'm back from my vacation and it's a pleasure to see your fantastic and fairy Christmas finds.

  5. Debbie You just dropped by to thank Me for visiting but I can't find where I visited ? : ) Boy oh boy! You sure did a lot of work.It looked so inviting, I would have loved to have been there. Looking forward to visiting You of course around each holiday-Hugs Denise

  6. You did some great shopping....I love that pink Santa the best, of course..lol! I can't wait to see your white and gold table...I know it will be gorgeous! Hugs, Penny

  7. I never tire of Christmas, Debbie, and it looks like you are well on your way to the season with all these great finds! It looks like the Flea Market was an awesome event and I am sure that was largely because of your arranging things. Great job!

  8. Wow Debbie, that is quite a task getting everything marked and set up like that. A big shout out to all of you for a job well done! You found some fabulous stuff. Looked like it was chosen just for you!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  9. Great finds, Debbie! We do all love a church garage sale/flea market! My car automatically swerves over to attend them. Love those pretty santas! Y'all did a great job organizing - that was a lot of work - whew! Well done! Hugs, Catherine

  10. Debbie, I think I am a bit jealous of a couple of your finds - I collect Santas and that pink one is awesome. Thank you for sharing at Share It One More Time. Cathy

  11. Wow! Great deals on the Santas! It looks look you all did an amazing job getting everything together. I love Christmas decor, especially Santas :).

  12. Hi Debbie,

    If I lived in PA, I'd be at your church bazaar for sure. I love those blue towels!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Have a Happy Blue Monday!

  13. Hi Debbie! You and my hubby love a red kitchen! He decorated ours when we moved in our house!
    I love that Santa and I am such a softie for anything Christmas. I miss the beautiful Home Interior Christmas prints! Somewhere I need to locate my Santa prints that look sweet gracing your holiday walls! No one shares all these fun Christmas treasures. Today everything is so BLAH! I don't care for twinkling white lights with twigs painted gold and silver! I love a true Christmas and I have many singing and dancing toys too! I may try my hand at creating a CHristmas wreath this year. I would love love love to find a Thanksgiving wreath too. No one gives the poor turkey his moment in the spotlight except at the dinner table. HaHaHa, Always fun to stop by and say hi! Hugs, Anne

  15. Oh what wonderful Christmas finds! Love those Santas -- I had a big blue one and another dressed in mauve, but my daughter kidnapped them! That was certainly a lot of work for the flea market, but well worth it! Everything looks so nice!
