Vintage Putz Christmas


More Putz houses. This is a batch of genuine vintage houses from Japan. I hit the mother load while thrifting the other day. These beauties were in a bag marked 3.00. I scooped them up as fast as I could. I got the pretty mirrored vanity tray there too for only 2.00. Right now I'm using it to display these beauties. But I have plans for this later on. Roses, roses roses! LOL I love how some of these houses have a bit of pink. My youngest and I especially love the one that looks like a castle.
I am loving these pink mercury glass styled trees I found at Michael's craft store. So pretty. I think I need to go back for more. I can't resist their sweetness!
Enjoy the beauty around you.
Today I am linking up with:

I loved those little pink trees when I saw them at Michael's. I debated getting them, but not knowing where I'd put them, I past those up.

I like how you have a whole collection of the houses. I too like the castle just because it looks so different than what we normally see with these type houses. Happy Pink Saturday!

You got very lucky that day, congratulations on your find. What a treasure, Char

Hi Roselle,

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and for your nice comments. Love your little display. Everyone I know has those little pink trees.
I think they are tree toppers too.
I wish they would come out with pink bottle brush trees in the stores too. I was just down your way yesterday at Cottage By the Sea for lunch. have you ever been there? It's on Sylvannia Ave in Avon. Have a blessed Christmas!

I know it's wrong to be jealous. But. I am SO JEALOUS! $3???? That is so amazing. Love your name, by the way, we have a version of the name in our family -- "Rosella" -- it's been a family name for generations.

My had a similar perfume tray when I was growing up, I wish she still had it!
Love the houses, I can't believe how much you paid :)

Sheesh...what an incredible find! I adore vintage Putz houses and have a few in my collection. I love setting up a whimsical winter scene every year. This year I used the winter village templates from Martha Stewart and tried my hand at making my own Putz houses. The results were quite charming!
