Jingle Bells...

I admit it,
I have a thing for dishes...
they catch my eye.
In fact, I have been watching a set, but they're in rough shape.
Kinda chippy, kinda stained...
every time I see them, I kinda melt.
And I kinda made an agreement with myself, 
if they ever go on sale, 
I just might have to get them!

Now, I don't need any more dishes.
 I just like to consider myself as transitioning over to the 
"collector" category.

So, one day I saw these at a little shop 
and knew they'd be perfect for the holidays.

There's something special about white and gold for the holidays, 
don't you think?
Add a little crystal and whimsy to the table and it's a fun setting.

I'm joining the following parties:

  1. Sharlotte, what a fantastic table! The Jingle Bell plates are fun and festive without being too "cute", so inserting a little glam through your gorgeous stemware was a great option. Welcome to the world of "certifiable" dish collectors! :-)
