Yard Sale Christmas Treasures

There are so many great Christmas things being posted throughout Blog Land!  So much inspiration!

Today I want to share some Christmas items that I have decorated my home with that are from....yard sales. Yard sales and estate sales are a great place to find some really neat Christmas decor.  It goes to show that you don't have to spend a fortune for nice looking things.  Someone else's trash can be your treasure.

I bought this snowman pillow a few years ago.  It adorns an antique bench (from my husband's great aunt) in the foyer.
I love snowmenpeople and scatter them here and there throughout the winter season.


I put some epsom salt in this yard sale winter scene candle holder, then added a votive candle.
It sits on top of an antique magazine stand that my Grandma gave me when I was just a little girl.

The snow falling, the snow covered trees, the peaceful scene on the candle holder, paired with a treasure from my Grandma...takes me back.  I can almost hear the snow crunching under foot as I walk through the winter wonderland.


I got a great deal on this silver snowman at a yard sale this past summer...it was missing it's nose. Can you tell what I fixed it with?  A piece of tin foil!  I love how it looks on my Christmas mantle with my other silver and blue decorations.


I purchased this sled many years ago at a yard sale.  It has a basket weave and wrought iron.  I fill it with real and faux greenery and bulbs.

Next week I will be sharing my Christmas mantel done in blue and silver.  I will also be sharing my eating nook...I'm seeing red!  Please follow through Blogger or by e-mail, both can be found on the right side bar.
