I worked for many years as management in retail stores. One of the things I remember most, especially when I was with JoAnn’s was the huge shipments of Christmas fabric and décor coming in for the big “Christmas in July” sales.
It would make all of us employees insane because at the same time they were sending out Halloween merchandise. However, I must confess, we all were excited to see what was new for Christmas that year.
So, today I am having a little Christmas in July myself.
A couple of weeks ago I stopped at a local Salvation Army store. I was looking for a couple of things in particular and told myself that if I didn’t find those items I would NOT spend any money! I did find one of the items I was looking for so, I felt justified buying a little extra.
Yup, it doesn’t take much to convince myself of justifying thrifting! LOL However, I did only spend .60 cents extra! How amazing is that!
SA had a huge box filled with books. And they were marked at .20 cents each! Of course I am going to check that out!
What did I find?
Three Better Homes and Gardens Christmas from the Heart. Home for the Holidays series.
Not only do I start finding ideas that I want to make or use for Christmas but, they generally have fun ideas that could be used anytime of the year. The above picture shows using vintage buttons on a package.
Not to mention they also have recipes. Above is sugared fruit. how pretty is that.
I think this Christmas tree made out of Christmas hankies and framed is adorable!
Well, that is my Christmas in July edition of TTF!
