  • 2 fat bags of vintage notions (rickrack ahoy!) $3 a piece

But best of all was a gift from one of the members of our thifting club, Debi. MY husband and I are crazy about Christmas- well, he is and I'm crazy for tacky anything. She got us this AMAZING lamp/music box. I don't thing we'll ever take it down... I LOVE LAMP!
