I've already changed my Christmas dishes
on our breakfast table...again!
It all started with a trip to Home Depot where
I spotted this pretty poinsettia and ivy plant
arrangement. It was in a rustic twig basket.
That meant a different table runner
(2 cloth dish towels)
and using the rattan plate chargers.
Mr. & Mrs. Clause salt and pepper
for more red accents.
Next came a new-to-me set of Snowman
dishes. A friend was moving and downsizing
so she was selling her extra set of
Christmas dishes. Service for 8 plus
2 large 10" serving bowls,
a 14" plater
sugar and creamer
gravy boat w/under dish,
plus 4 snack plates.
All for $30! How could I pass that up?!
This is a nice casual everyday pottery set.
Since I already have too many Christmas
dishes...or so I've been told, I'll be giving
these to my daughter in TX. We'll be driving
there for Christmas. They'll get packed up soon.
But meanwhile I'll get to use them . HA!
or should I say HO! HO!.
I already had a few serving pieces of the
same pattern that we used at our place in
North Carolina. I brought those home a
few years ago. I had a cookie canister,
9x13 baking dish, napkin holder, and few
additional pieces to add to the set.
Now she'll have everything she needs.
I love using oil lamps for
a low flame glow in the evenings.
Tiny twinkle lights in the poinsettia.
Of course there's always a tea set in
my table vignettes.
A little fun art using the
I added the battery copper wire mini lights
that I had used in November with pinecones
to turn on each evening.
The only positive thing about it getting dark
earlier is that we can dine by candlelight
or mini lights each evening.
Sofie is watching my every move and
is hoping she'll get a new set-up too.
Of course little Sofie also likes using
Christmas dishes in December
It's what we do.
The soup bowls fit right into the
feeding tray Larry made years ago.
Hope you're enjoying your
