Quick Fix for a Yard Sale Find

A few weeks ago I posted about a Saturday of yard sale & thrift shopping. Among those things I found a pretty glass jar for a quarter. Sweet hubby thought it was a lost cause, pish posh! I knew that plastic lid would pop off easily, making it easy to clean.
A 25 cent steal, the plastic gasket was not tight and easy to remove.

The $1.00 tray I found along with a 10 cent doile and a bunch of wooden cranberries from my Christmas stash made a pretty display on my dining room China cabinet. (Notice my very first card there in the corner. I plan on arranging all my cards around this display.)

How do you show small Christmas touches in your home?

What great deals you got on those things. :) The cranberries are so pretty!

I like to use sprigs of greenery or berries for a touch of Christmas in each room. :)

I had faith in you Gina! Anyone who can pop fudge in their mouth as fast as you has to know what they are doing :)
I love a clean shiny glass jar full of colorful anythings!
