#4 Presents wrapped under the tree

Susan ,who's been hosting 25 photos of December, asked that today's photo be of presents wrapped and under the tree.

That's not happening at my house, not yet anyway. I've bought a few but wrapped none.

Today I didn't have time to wrap presents. The blacksmith and I went to an auction. I came home with a big smile on my face. If it were only Halloween I would be listing these to sell on Ebay or Etsy.




I got 3 unopened packages of Beistle Creation Witchs, dated 1984.

I got two Beistle Honeycomb Spiders, dated 1976. They were not in a package but are in pretty darn good shape. (There are some listed on Etsy for $24.99 each.

I got two packages of a dozen each of Cross leaf garland. These are 12 feet long and in fall colors. I'm not sure if they are Beistle.  They are in perfect condition.


I got this unopened package of a good luck centerpiece, also by Beistle dated 1984, free.  It sold, along with some baskets, for $3. I didn't want to give that for it. As the lady walked away with her purchase, I asked if she would take a dollar for the centerpiece. "Oh, this thing? You can just have it."  Score!  Good luck for me!

After the auction, I came home and pulled out some more Christmas decorations. Sooner or later, I will get my trees up and my packages wrapped.

Score.. indeed! How cool is all that? Well, I vote to have a wine/present-wrapping session in the very near future. We can motivate each other via chat or something.. lol. I need someone to light a fire under me! (Wine would help too) -T

Wow, you really did score. We haven't even pulled any decorations out of storage yet, much less get anything put up. Where does the time go????????
