When I went thrifting some time ago I bought a bag full of old wrapping papers. Some were absolutely lovely, like the ones in the photos below, but, apart from a set of labels and other mini curiosities, there were some little surprises neatly tucked in. And if you are a fellow thrifter you probably agree that it is these hidden treasures that would make your day!

In the bag I found this immaculate unopened vintage packet of pretty christmas card holders…

And the cutest Merry Christmas paper ribbon wrapped around this stylish “Regal” Santa card, complete with a “Make your gifts gay” slogan! Oh, how lovely it was to find something I hadn’t expected!

Apart from my regular thrifting I have also had the time to do a little shop updating and the original drawing of this slightly startled looking Tomato-Girl-Tomato is now available in my Etsy shop here.

Now I’m looking forward to decorating my new cardholders which is great, since, in true Swedish tradition I am not to decorate my christmas tree until the evening before Christmas Eve and I have a lot of decorating itchiness in my hands. I will see you soon, I hope, until then; A Very Thrifty Christmas!
