Weekend Finds: Vintage Holiday

I found this first item last week at a small shop that had just brought out its holiday goodies. The item is an old Christmas corsage. I have a few other Christmas corsages, but this is my favorite being that it has an adorable painted clay face of an elf with a chenille beard. Also I was happy to find a “Made in Japan” paper label still attached to the backside. Who else wants to start wearing Christmas corsages?

With all this cold weather we are getting right now, I also found a little sign of spring with this 1950s papier maché candy container egg. The inside of the Easter egg is marked “container made in Western Germany.” I paid $1.00 for it at a church sale.

What have you guys found lately? It’s so slow around here and so very, very cold, but at least it’s getting me in the mood to start decorating for Christmas.
