Snag Christmas Party: Part I

The Snag Team had our Christmas party the last weekend in January. Austin hosted the party since his home was still a vintage holiday wonderland. Today I’m sharing the fun gifts I received.

First up are these thermoses to add to my growing collection. I’d say I have 20 plus of these metal thermoses. The fun blue is Thermos brand and the plaid red is by Aladdin.

I’m always on the hunt for a fun vintage thermos and I received two.

Austin knew I had an old motor to some Tinker Toys and found me an old container full of them. Now to figure out how my old motor runs.

I love the graphics on the container.

Straight off my New Years finds list, Angela somehow found me a vintage Christmas color wheel. She has some wonderful connections! If only I could keep my aluminum tree up year round.

Knowing I love old books, Angela found me The Rainbow Dictionary that was first published in 1947. This book is not dated and I was unable to find this cover online. I’m guessing it is an early addition. The images inside are bright and wonderfully illustrated by Joseph Low.

I love the splattered blue paint on the sides of the pages.

This book is going to be so fun to read to my boys.

I also received this 1970s Makit & Bakit train sun-catchers craft set from Austin. My son was so excited when he saw it. I may have some after shots this to post soon. Here is my previous post about Makit & Bakit.

A big thank you to Angela and Austin. I also received a few other gifts like a Christmas wreath with an elf and lots of candy. Angela and Austin will be sharing their gifts in their upcoming posts. I hope they were as excited about their gifts as I am with mine. Now I need to start hunting for their gifts for next year.
