Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly.
Lots of Decking Out with Holly going on here at CollectInTexas Gal!
As Ya'll already know, I'm a 'Sucker for Dishes' and this Christmas Season
HiHoney asked , "What's on your Christmas Wish List?"
"Your kiddin'!!! After all the Dishes you posted about last month....that's absolutely
So, I HoHoHoed myself to the Thrift Shops! Look what I found!
Could anything be more perfect with this Vintage Holly Garland Table Cloth found at a Garage Sale.
As an admirer of this pattern by Spode, I knew that $8 for:
4 dinner plates
4 salad plates
....that they would not be by Spode.
I was right...they are by Gibson and the pattern is Noel Morning.
As always, I needed to know HowMuch I saved, so on to eBay I
The same set NIB (new in the box) plus 4 mugs, was Buy Now for $49.95.
Okay....I'm on a roll. How about some Christmas Glasses!
Yeeesssss!!! There they were on the next shelf down from the dishes. Seven of them marked 49 cents each.
Oh! Did I mention ....Christmas items were 50% off that day! Fa la la la la, la la la la!
With the ring of Holly and the red band, they look perfect with the Noel Morning dishes and the Ribbon and Holly Napkin Rings, also a thrift find...6 NIB and made in 1986 by Action Industries....and there were 2 boxes.
That works out great when I have dinner for 12 and use the Christmas Napkins.
And now for the Decked Out Holly Table Center Piece
Santa and Mrs. Clause Motionettes made by Telco Creations Inc. and marketed by Wal-Mart in 1995.
Also a Thrift Store find for $5. Wal-Mart priced at $20 in 1995!
Then Santa Kissing Mrs. Clause Salt and Pepper Shakers..
..a gift from my son when he was ten....their cost....priceless!
See the blazing Yule before us
Strike the Harp and join the chorus
Follow me in Merry Measure
While I tell of Yuletide Treasure.
Fa la la la la, la la la la
(second verse of Deck the Halls)
