Vintage Christmas Pretties

Hello my friends, I hope you had a good weekend.

Saturday was a lazy day for us,
so hubby and I stopped in at GW for a few minutes.
And what to my wondering eyes did appear,
but a Santa Mug!





Isn't it cute?
I love these and have decided to collect a few.
Hubby did not agree, (with the cute factor)
in fact he completely agreed with the sticker that is on the bottom of the cup...



Now who would think such a thing and 
then tag it as such?!
Hahaha, I think it is very funny.

I was very happy to find this...



...it is vintage and slightly tacky, but that is what 
I love about it.
Now to find a place for it.

Here is a darling little pillow that you can make.
Be sure to check out Robins blog, 
Happy At Home, for the tutorial.
I really want to do this one.



Are you following any of the Christmas Home Tours?
This is a really great one.
The "Home for the Holidays"  tour starts at 
Worthing Court.
It is a tour of six different homes starting today, Monday through Friday.



Have a good week and be sure to do something 
fun. every. day!

I like your cute mug, and it just goes to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and they need to have their eyes checked! We, on the other hand, don't. ;-)

Hi Cindy, I love the Santa mug! It reminds me of a mug I had as a little girl :) I couldn't wait to use it each Christmas.

Although it's important to remember the reason for the season, its still fun to add a little Christmas tacky into the mix, and I for one love the mug....I think he's very cute! I'd display him proudly in my kitchen, too!

I think the mug is adorable - but my husband would agree with yours!
Thanks for letting us know about the pillow tutorial - I like it!

Hi Cindy
I laughed at the sticker on the mug!...makes me wonder if it was part of a gift exchange in fun...but it looks nice with your vintage décor.
I'm glad you are walking again..we'll try for a new time for tea

I love those Santa mugs! I think they look particularly cute with bottle brush trees in them!

The Santa mug is cute, no matter what anyone else says!
I saw that same pillow and too thought it would make a good project.
I've been following the home tours-it is so much fun peeking into some one elses home.

Shelia said...

Hi Cindy! OH, I love your little Santie mug. What do hubbies know anyway? :) I'm sure you'll make a darling pillow like that one. Hope you're doing well and thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Ha, I love the sticker on the bottom. How silly.
I agree with you, cute and I am glad it has a happy home. :-)

Looks like the girls have it! Santa mug stays!:) so cute, all of your treasures. I especially love the pillow. Your home is so cozy. I owe you an email. I am smiling!!!
Blessings friend! ♥

Betty said...

You found some bright and cheerful touches for your Christmas decor. Lovely cushion cover.

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

That is hilarious that someone actually went to the trouble of labeling the mug tacky. I think it is sweet and will look perfect with a cup of tea or cocoa in it.

podso said...

Cindy you just find the perfect things for your house. And then you have just the knack to make them look so good!

Rhonda said...

The sticker is funny but not accurate- I think it is cute as can be.
We have 2 big Santa mugs, not vintage but I like them, and I got them down just last night for my hot cocoa.

Oh and thank you for the cold Canadian front coming our way, it is supposed to be below freezing for about 5 or more days. Brrrrr! I will be hibernating at home.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Cindy, I would have purchased that cute Santa mug too! Not tacky at all!

I am just beginning to decorate for Christmas --have a long way to go but my husband is away on business and I can't drag up all the decoration bins from the basement by myself

Your vintage finds are sweet, Cindy.. I do love that pillow, too..
Take care, my friend. xo

Well...I did have a giggle after seeing the little sticker note on the bottom of the mug. The Santa mug is cheery and happy so enjoy it in the corner of your kitchen...it will be wonderful holding a hot cup of coffee or tea! I think the pillow is a lovely idea for seasonal decor...so festive in those colours!
