Last of my weekend finds~

I found these three rings that I love!

The two have dried flowers in them and the last one is a reversed carved flower.

Got this at a thrift shop.

Wasn't sure what it was but I want it for soaps in the bathroom.  Along with this one, was three more styles:

I was thinking these will be perfect to organize my desk drawer with office supplies!

Don't you think they are perfect?  Well, when I got back to the hotel, I did research on them and found out they are dental trays!  LOLOL!  Could be worse, could be embalming tool holders!

These are way too cute!

They are like vintage bobble heads!

Their little heads are on springs.  I wasn't sure about those things in their mouths, I didn't think they should be smoking cigars but that's what they look like to me.  Now I know they are supposed to be pipes.

I wish I would have taken a photo of how the seller packs these.  She uses these clear plastic containers like you would use for a hamburger or hot dog at a WaWa.  She packs them filled with tissue paper, puts the items inside at the top then staples them closed.  All you see are the items, can't touch them or see the backs etc.

I thought they were cute!

She kind of squished the green one and I'm attempting to get it to stand on it's own again.  The trees are adorable!

BUT, what are they?  Now that I got them out of the container, look at the backs of them!

There's a plastic tube on the back.  Like they are to be pushed onto something to hold them onto a tree or something along those lines?  I'm investigating the possibility they might have come from JewelBrite ornaments but JewelBrites are made in USA and these are stamped Japan.  Any thoughts?

And my last ornament:

I think that's a muff hanging off the one arm!

Marked just JAPAN which helps date it!

That's it for this trip.

What a trip you had. I see you saved the best (at least in my humble opinion), the Christmas goodies. The dental trays are quite a find and the way you have them set up for your office supplies is perfect. Also enjoyed those acrylic rings. All around great shopping kiddo.
Thanks for sharing everything.
