Thrift of Terror: It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

Except in this box, which is empty.


But apparently once contained an Old World Sequined Soldier.
Which makes no sense as soldiers usually want to blend in with their surroundings.
Unless in dress uniform, and then sequins? Not so much.
Sadly the actual Sequined Soldier was nowhere to be found.

Seen at the Orange, CT Savers.

  1. My deductive skills tell me that he went MIA during a battle waged in a Las Vegas casino...or maybe a circus tent. Or it's possible that his sequined uniform allowed him to blend, and he went AWOL to start a new life with a trapeze artist.

  2. Every St. Nicholas Day my mother gives my brother and I a pair of those Nutcracker Village nutcrackers. Over the years we've accumulate TONS of them, but the thing is, I hate Christmas decorations. I thought I'd managed to escape, as they've been accumulating over at her place. No such luck. Got a call tonight and they've been dug out of the attic and are headed here next weekend.
