Oriental Candy dish

I found this at the thrift store Friday. I loved it for several reasons...the bright colored sections that come out and can be washed, and the fact that the whole thing turns like a lazy susan. The bottom is red plastic and the top is clear with little oriental people on it. I don't think it's that old, but it fits in! If I don't want it for a candy dish, I could use it for jewelry.. My first purchase for a while! I also got a great vintage table cloth, Christmas, for around 50 cents..everything Christmas was marked down.
Can't wait to see all the new year's finds, and can't wait to find my own! Zootsuitmama

Christmas goodbye

 Mr Elf sez: "Check me out in the kitchen window shot! I'm the star of the show"!! Once again, I looooove the boxes, especially when they are in this good of shape!

 Flossie was my Grandma's name. I bought this funnel cake mix just for the box.

 I'd never seen an elf apron, or any Christmas material - like this before.

 There's my hometown hero, Harry Truman! This pix was taken at the Square, in the 40's, when it was the heart of the shopping district. It's getting back to being a great place to visit!

 Crocheted red and green apron.
One last peek at the Christmas linens, aprons and "stuff" before it all is tucked snugly away til next year. I always get sad, but also excited to try something new after the holidays. I've been scouring magazines (I saved ALL my Mary Engelbriet and others) and yes, even all of your blogs -for ideas. Pix soon!!! Happy New Year...and hope all your days are Merry and Bright...even if Christmas is over. Love to all! Zootsuitmama
