CHRISTMAS DISHES

Morning Prim Folk,  Happy Hump Day to you all!!!! Snowy, blowy here today and   the cold is on it's way to, dipping way down with a biting wind chill,  good time to snuggle in and stay toasty................ Yesterday I  took out my Christmas dishes to use through the month of December. I like to use them everyday,  I think  they are so pretty and plus my Mom and Dad gave the set to me one Christmas in the 90'S. I fell in love with this pattern called Christmas Pleasure so they bought a set for me one Christmas and then every year after that I would receive a piece in that pattern like a tea pot, cream/sugar, salt/pepper shakers, so that I have all the settings  for the table. They are so special to me, then  I came across these beautiful plates called Merry Christmas by the Johnson Brothers  at a church rummage sale, love their dishes. Then at a Antique store I came across these beauties, love the pictures on them both, one called Winter Holiday, another Johnson Bros, the other one Winter, Shakespeare's Sonnets, HOW LIKE A WINTER HATH MY ABSENCE BEEN FROM THEE. THE PLEASURE OF THE FLEETING YEAR, so beautiful.  A little dish my sweet MIL gave me for I loved the old horse and sleigh winter scene on it, called Canadiana would you believe, a treasure now  for she has passed.  I adore picture plates and that's why you will find me looking through old dishes wherever we go, thrift stores, yard sales, hoping to find another treasure.............Wishing you a wonderful day,  welcome  to all the new followers, Warm  Blessings Francine.
CHRISTMAS PLEASURE


MERRY CHRISTMAS
