Johnson Brothers Transferware Christmas Plates…


Over the weekend I got the house all cleaned up from Thanksgiving and got the Christmas decorations out.

With my daughter scheduled to have her baby on Monday, I wanted to have my house taken care of in order to help my daughter over the next couple of weeks if she needs me. 

I’m sure I’ll be “tweaking” this and that and moving things around, but other than that, I’m done.

I even went through all my seasonal décor, got rid of anything I no longer want, and reorganized the rest.

Out with the old, in with the new…

When I found Johnson Brother’s English Transferware Christmas Plates at Home Good for $3.99 apiece, I bought 8 dinner plates.  They will mix in with my white plates nicely, while adding a little Christmas cheer to the table.

In the meanwhile, I like them mixed in with the decorations.





I can’t close this post without showing you this photo my son in law took yesterday when big sister met little sister for the first time.  Aren’t they beautiful?  Believe it or not, little blondie had quite a bit of darker hair when she was born too…not quite as much or quite as dark as little sister though.


So, have you started your Christmas decorating yet?

Still following,
