Christmas In July .....

Today I hit the mother load at the Salvation Army. They have so much Christmas stuff out. I found some really good buys and I lost a good buy :( I found this really cute snowman cookie jar still in the original box for $2.00. I took it out of the box to check it out. The lid had a funny sound to it when I pinged it. It was broken. You could hear the echo in the ping. I examined it and found that it had a huge crack down the middle on the inside of the head and some chips around the edge. The lady at the S.A was beside me when I was looking at it. She asked me if it was ok. I told her it was cracked inside the head. She took it from me and said she didnt want to sell it because she didnt want to sell a broken cookie jar. Oh Well! I'll just keep checking them out until I find one I like and not broken.
So let me show you all of my other goodies that I was lucky enough to find.
Brand new creamer and sugar set
12 Shower curtain hooks -4 of each
3 mantel stocking holders
wooden tree
cookie cutters
cookie cutters with the box top off
3 twig sprays
brand new in the box solid brass joy candle holders
2 odd candle holders
2 metal and wooden sconces
4 glass candleholders
4 small metal buckets and a set of wooden brackets
a mega mug with boxes
a pic to give you an idea of how big the mega mug is
a wooden pig

yellow wooden box

2 cutting boards

Backside of candle light new in box

front of candle light new in box

I think that is everything. I hope I didn't forget anything. Most of the items will be getting a new look. I'll have to post some pics after I get them done. A long with my many other make overs. Have a great evening!

Well, I saw your makeovers, they look great!
I need to finish WAY more than I care to think about at this moment! LOL!
I did mostly finish my swap stuff though, and I will work on some other things as time allows.

Too bad about the cookie jar :-( I have tried several times at our Salvation Army can never seem to find anything. You have inspired me to try again.
