Christmas Dishes

This past year I found some really cute everyday Christmas Dishes at (of course)  my Goodwill.  There were 8 dinner plates and 8 salads, all for $1 each, so into my cart they hopped.  I totally forgot about them until I was getting things out for my Christmas tablescape.   Aren't they fun with their cute Christmas trees.

Their casual style makes them work perfectly with the placemats, napkins and centerpiece that I already had on the breakfast table.

Both the dinner plate and salad plate have the cute little trees on them.

 See how well they go with my centerpiece.  Fun dishes that I can use everyday during the season.

 Don't you just love forgotten treasures!!!!!

  11. Wonderful dishes! I actually have some very much like this for sale in my flea market booth. Hope someone who had a good eye like you will come along and buy them! Lovely table!

  12. Nice find on the dishes, Marty! I saw a couple of sets at our Goodwill {and then the odd dish here and there}, which is great for someone to get a set of Christmas dishes inexpensively. I have too many myself, but it's hard not to be enticed by the pretty Christmas patterns!

  13. You have such great luck at Goodwill! Really cute dishes, Marty. They look good and sturdy too.

  14. I do, I do!
    Love those Marty, what a darling table!
    Merry Christmas my dear friend.
    I hope you and your family have a lovely holiday season.

  15. That's the best! Kind of like finding cash in coat pocket!! The prices at your Goodwill are amazing! What a great deal!! Very cute!

  16. Love your plates. I worked in the office of a store with a gift shop in the early seventies. I think that pattern was popular then. We sold something like them if not the exact pattern. So nice, and finding them at a good price is wonderful. I'm using the ones I bought last year at my daughter's Santa Consignment sale for 19.00. I just love them too.

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  17. Very pretty, Marty! And a great bargain. Love the green rim.
    Why don't you come over and link this up to Let's Dish?

  18. I see these everytime I go to goodwill. I always pick them up and put them back. Now nI wish I had them.. It's a matter of storing all the dishes I buy!

  19. Marty,

    What a wonderful find. They are very cute, you always find the best things.
