Holiday Pottery

*Unable to locate the name of the artist.

I got away for a bit of Christmas shopping this evening. I love shopping for others and spend much of the time walking three feet above the floor with excitement. For years, I have been searching for Christmas dishes. I wanted something I could collect, not a seasonal set where pieces would not be replacable. I have considered this.


And, this.


So far, nothing has tugged at my heart until this evening when I stumbled across this plate at Marshall's. What do you think?

  3. The plates are all lovely but the last one is definitely more usable all winter long. That dress made out of blue plates is the most unusual thing I have seen. Just lovely.

  8. You've gotta love Marshall's!! It's one of my favorite hunting grounds....
    Love the third one, whimsical and different. I started with the red and white Spode Winter's Eve and Victorian Holiday scenes. All Marshall's finds as well!
