Flea Market Finds with Christmas flavour

We were out and about this morning with a long list.  A bit of Christmas shopping, the regular groceries and the quest for the giant turkey needed to feed the family for Christmas dinner.  Giant turkeys are not easy to come by but we did find one in the end and as Husband carried the VERY large frozen object to the van, many and varied people commented on the bird's enormity.

I did find another of my favourite bags of assorted doilies at the thrift store.  I love finding a bag of this stuff and there are some really lovely ones in this bag and all of it for $5.  I have this idea of sewing them all onto a quilt one day.

And then I thought I would share some of my Christmas thrift store/garage sale Christmas treasures from the past while.

A sweet little tree, lit with a Christmas tree bulb.

A Christmas elf from my Nanna.

A snow globe music box that I bought at a garage sale for $1.

And this lovely wee bird that clips on to the tree branch.  

Have a lovely rest of your day and I will be linking up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds.  Check out all the lovely treasures!  I will be busy at the sewing machine, wrapping presents and driving Husband a little batty for sure.  

Don't forget to check out my giveaway on Monday when I link up with the Sew Mama Sew giveaway day!
