I found many things at the thrift this week. Kosta Boda snowball, Ultima Thule whiskey glass, some fun Deco Glass and these guys.
As I stated in an ealier post, I have been having a good time looking through a whole lot of junk to find Christmas treasures.
Drummer fella is what is called a spun head. This guy is probably from the 60s. Crafters really seem to like to use these in vintage wreathes and vignettes.
The very scary looking elves (did I hear the knife drawer open?!) are called "Knee Hugger Elves". Super popular and tough to find, especially the big ones (found three! same place) I would say they are from the early 60s. I assume that people like to scare the living daylights out of each other for Christmas.
Lastly you can see a set of four George Briard Christmas glasses. They are really stylized and fun.
Don't know if I will keep up the Christmas stuff posts, but I am learning something new, and think it is kind of interesting.
