These are some dishes I got from the goodwill. They were new you could tell. I am thinking of a sister lunch this Saturday. Something easy and quick. I will use these little snowman dishes.
I also picked up these little bowls. I thought they would work for dessert. Maybe cake and ice cream , possibly fruit and yogurt. Like I said something simple. I do love Christmas dishes. I have had a set for 4 , for a very long time. It's a complete set with bowls, cups, salad , and dinner plates. I have never used it , as I have 4 sisters. But there are eight each of these plates and bowls from the goodwill . So handy. I think after Christmas would be a good time to shop for holiday dishes...to get a sale and get enough.
It is getting colder around here now...the last few days of 40 degrees just about spoiled me. LOL.
Hope everyone has a pleasant day. XO
Snowmen are so cute and you can continue to use them after the holidays! Have a fun day my friend! Hugs!ReplyDelete
Thanks Diane. I do like snowmen for winter décor. I like them better than santa...cause he needs to be out away at the end of the month at least. :):) Blessings for a fun day, xoxo,SusieDelete
Those are really cute dishes, Susie. What a great find. Yep-after Christmas sales are the best! xo DianaReplyDelete
Diana, we need a small shed to buy things after Christmas and store them LOL. When my girls were all home...I would hit the clothing sales and save till next year. You know like sweaters, pj's, things like that. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Love the cute snowman plates. Adorable. Yep we have been spoiled with the mild spring like temps but we all know Old Man Winter is coming to stay!!! Have a great week as we get ready for Santa's big day.ReplyDelete
Hi Kris, I think you are right, it going to be real winter. I was hoping no snow till Jan. LOL. I really hate blowing snow. The farmers plowed the fields..so there is no stubble to catch the snow. Stay warm and Enjoy the season. xoxo,SusieDelete
I love those snowmen plates.ReplyDelete
I have one set of Christmas dishes, but I think I need to hunt up some new plates in the after Christmas sales.
Carol, If I had been a smart woman from the start...I would have bought all white dishes and just changed the napkins and place mats. But I do love dishes of all colors and kinds. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I've never had Christmas dishes. Yours are so cute.ReplyDelete
Yes, do something special with them!!!
Hi Kimberly, You'll have to go to a goodwill to see if they have any...usually after Christmas. Now I don't think I can have sister luncheon, two of my sisters are not feeling well. Hope it's not the flu. Bless you and yours for a wonderful Holiday. xoxo,SusieDelete
Well, I've enough Christmas dishes to help you set your table, Susie, and have some left over! Dishes are a weakness of mine. I like the snowman theme. xo NellieReplyDelete
Nellie, I know I should have bought all white dishes from the start , then had fancy napkins and table cloths. But I love dishes too. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I love the snowmen dishes Susie! I have some similar. I will pull them out for January. A sister luncheon sounds fun! I would love to do something like that with mine. A wonderful Christmas wish to you my friend!ReplyDelete
Jann, I talked with my sister pam this evening, she and Jeanie are not well...so I do not think I'll have a luncheon till Jan. I love all kinds of dishes. They are fun to change out. Christmas wishes to you and yours. xoxo,SusieDelete
the dishes are beautiful and that sounds wonderful, I wish I had sisters, enjoy!!!ReplyDelete
Hi Laurie, I have missed you. I hope you and Garry are doing well and enjoying the holiday season. I wish you a wonderful Christmas. xoxo,SusieDelete
When we moved, I gave my Christmas dishes to my daughter. I've had second thoughts...but won't tell her. I'll go like you to the thrift store and get a few.ReplyDelete
I love snowmen..have lots of them.
Wanda, I know what you mean. I gave my sister some things and have never seen them at her house...and she wanted them. I think she and her daughter sold them on ebay. LOL. The trift stores have lots of cute things, I think it would be okay to mix them when it's informal...which is everyday here. :):) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I like anything with snowmen and these are adorable. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Buttercup, I saw all your snowmen and they are very cute. My daughter has a huge amount too, plus she has a Santa collection too. xoxo,SusieDelete
Very cute dishes Susie. Hey I just became addicted to Goodwill the last couple of months or so. I found out last Wednesday, that on the first Wednesday of the month is Senior Citizens Day and everything is 30% off AND the first Saturday of the month everything is half off!!!ReplyDelete
Cindy, You are going to be a goodwill regular, I can see it. In the summer you will find nice things to decorate your gardens. My Ted buys old candles there and makes fire starters. Maybe I'll see you there...oh yes, I like that senior discount.LOL. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Oh I love our dishes! So festive, and beings they are snowmen, you can use them all winter!! Yeah! I have a set downstairs, I never seem to use anymore. I'm like you I love them too!!ReplyDelete
Sounds like s fun time coming up with your sisters. Enjoy!
Gert, That is why I like snowmen better than Santas , to use all winter. My luncheon with my sisters is off...two are sick and need to stay away form people. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Your sisters lunch sounds delightful, and the snowman dishes are just right for it. I can't believe you have FOUR sisters, Susie! Do you all get along with each other? I am the youngest of five children, so my sister is about six years older than me.
Sheri, I had 10 siblings. $ sisters and 6 brothers. One brother and his wife were killed in an accident. His name was miles and he was a beautiful person. He was a detective for the Indiana State Police...there was huge funeral in our town for him and his wife. I may do a post on them . xoxo,SusieDelete
