White Wednesday Christmas

Linking up to White Wednesday over at Faded Charm today. This is my first "white post".
Picked the reindeer up as one of a pair last week at the thrift store. They had HORRIFIC bows tied around their neck (honestly, I thought I might need to call animal protective services for crimes against nature!). Snipped them off, washed them up and now they reside in majestic beauty on the window ledge of my basement landing.
I loved how once I took the junk (notice I wrote junk NOT junque) off them their simplicity reminded me of Jonathan Adler pieces (which I drool over on a frequent basis). The Taiwan sticker on the bottom tells me they were current to my childhood so I suppose that explains the appeal.
What are you thrifting this holiday season?

Linking up with:

Deck the Halls Friday at Tinsel & Co.

Somehow I keep looking for more vintage ornaments because the two billion I have already might get lonely. :-) I do like vintage Christmas fabric and tablecloths too but they're getting harder to find at the thrift shops here. I think someone must be holding out!

Glad you saved your reindeer from a fashion disaster. He is a nice find.

These are great-I've been thinking that reindeer don't get enough focus-I may have to look for some myself-great item!

Love you find. I like how the old window is in the background, nice touch.
Happy Holidays
