A Thrift Store Christmas

It doubles as both decoration and fire wood.
I think this Santa is supposed to be winking, but he looks like Pirate Santa or as if he had an accident.
Drunk Santa?
Nutty Professor Santa? Love those crooked glasses.
This is what happens when you mix quilting and excess Christmas spirit.
Zombie Santa
Anything with felt and googly eyes has to win your heart, right? And I don't think they're missing eyes....I think the winking santa is a popular figure. It's all part of the jolly image, I guess.

And this one struck me as kind of sad. Did you notice that this cute little mouse is sitting atop a mouse trap!?!


  1. oh my- the mouse trap Christmas is a classic- I have to say, I have a hard time anymore with unauthentic anything.. the christmas mugs make me chuckle- I remember when they were the popular Christmas punch cup..

  2. Impressive collection, the last one is like Poe's "The Masque of the Red Death" rendered as a Christmas decoration, but with more pathos.

  3. whoa, those totally took me grandmother had a bunch of those santa mugs...and i didn't remember them at all 'til you showed these! fun!

  4. I liked the Santa with glasses....looks cute....
