If I reflected on the last year and wondered what my favorite Thrift Finds were, I would probably say my little collection of Northern European Christmas decor. Maybe it's the Waldorf mom in me or maybe it's the fact that most of these decorations are wooden with soft paint that is often matte rather than gloss. I am drawn to their simplicity.
When I brought the one on the left home on Saturday the children recognized the store of the turnip. They both smiled and laughed and couldn't tell me quick enough that they knew the story. Both of these are Russian and were 75¢ each at a charity yard sale.
This little ornament is Swedish. I love the light colors and the moss behind the figure. It's going to be my first Christmas where I can really use all of these Northern European items in my house. They'll mix in well with my vintage collection. Now if only I can find an aluminum tree before Dec 24th. That would make my Christmas perfect.
I think this Danish Modern chair was my find of the day. It was $5. I'm going to change out the fabric but I think the design of the wood is fabulous. I wish that I had 5 more to go with my dining room table.
