Vintage Thingie Thursday--Ornaments

I bought some vintage Coby ornaments at Not Necessarily New.

I wiped them off, polished them up and dumped (well, not really dumped) them in this glass battery case.

They look charming on the mantel!

A lotta Christmas for a tiny bit of money and I didn't have to dig out those boxes and boxes and boxes and boxes.......of ornaments! Except I think I added to my junk pile with them!

Do you have a Vintage Thingie you want to share? Join the fun by visiting the Colorado Lady and signing up with Mr. Linky.

I love your baubles in the jar - I don't have so many! Your mantel is simple but lovely. We don't have a mantel :-(
Yes it is summer here - I loved seeing your snow in your earlier post. Thanks for visiting my blog!

What a fun idea! I would have never thought to dump random Christmas ornaments in a jar! They look fantastic and I am so stealing that idea!

Susan said...

Love your dump them in a jar; I gasped. From someone who loves old glass ornaments dearly. LOL.

Wonderful holiday ideas! Now go grab a few more minty Oreos (we love them too!) before they're totally gone!
Happy Holidays! Jewelgirl
