Trim The Tree Thursday






Today for Trim the Tree Thursday I thought that I would share my Christmas dishes.

I usually get them out the day before or after Thanksgiving. Just because there are so many and I want to be able to enjoy them as much as possible.
This is my biggest collection of dishes. I have been collecting them for over 15 years. My aunts have been contribution to this dish addiction every Christmas. Now... I have a service for 16! I Love it! I hope on Tablescape Tuesday I will have one of my Christmas tables to share.







Thank you Brett for hosting this great get together every week!

If you would like to see more beautiful Christmas posts go to the Southern Hostess (with the mostest) : )

Are those Nikko Christmas Time? *sigh*

I once passed on a set of those @ a thrift store because I already have many sets of Christmas dishes & thought I couldn't justify anymore. I've regretted it ever since. I hate those "buys that got away".

Your dishes are lovely but way to make me feel bad! *grins*

Hi Liz,

Those plates are beautiful and your hutch looks so pretty too!! I love that pattern so much!

Thanks so much for your sweet comments! The ornaments are from Hallmark, I got them in Ebay because they are from a series a few years back. The fridge is from 2007 and the oven is 2004 I think. I don't collect Hallmark, but I just thought the Vintage look was so great, so now im keeping my eye out for more to make a little kitchen tree next year :)

Happy Holidays!! xox
