Crappy Homemade Gifts™, Merry Thriftmas

Phat Loot? Flat Loot!

Who had the best day at the thrift store EVER!? That would be me.

Thanks to my sister’s eagle eyes, I scored two bags of mixed reptilian skins ready for stuffing. Lest you are totally grossed out at this moment, I mean this variety of reptile:


Six frogs! Eleven gila monsters! Twenty-one lizards! And a partridge in a pear tree. And so very, very cheap. I am pretty jazzed about the whole thing. All I need now is beans. I struggle and struggle with Merry Thriftmas presents for kids – boys especially – and these are perfect.

I also saved these super retro vintage tins. One is a standard vintage Xmas cookie container, and the other a snazzy mortgage document holder. So dreamy! At first I thought I would try to sell the portable file on Etsy, but I don’t think I will part with it.


Oh, and I nearly forgot my “new” green beads.
