Better Late than Never

Since I am new to blogging I seem to post before I was finished. I was attempting to add photos of my Christmas table when the computer master decided something different. I am going to try again. Wish there was a class for blogging!!!
 But before I do I want to tell you of some of the items that I was fortune to acquire in the last few weeks.
Goodwill----snack set of Suthland China (photos to come)$10.00
                    8 cut glass gold rim wine glasses which I believe maybe Mikasa $4.00
                                           (Thanks to my Mom)
Local Thrift shop----Place setting of 6 Lajean by Canonsburg $6.00
                                 Extra serving pieces for $6.00
                                Fostoria American glasses 4-$2.00
Local Antique Shop---- 8 each Red & Wooden colored chargers $15.00
In the small town where I live we have 6 thrift stores, 4 antique stores and Goodwill. I also have a mom that is retired which loves to have items to be on the search for. Now to see if I can add those photo's.

Christmas Dinning Room 2010
This is the completed table for Christmas.
Tablecloth, is a gold & silver mix of  ornaments which I purchased at Target several years ago. This was the second cloth as the first was a beige and just didn't work with the white Gibson dinnerware. The salad plates were a recent purchase from Cracker Barrel. I loved that the plates as they were printed with Love, Joy and Peace.
Chargers: Hobby Lobby/Garden Ridge

This is a better look at the salad plates. The centerpiece is reindeer inspired with my new collections this year. The two gold on the left from Dollar General and  the white  reindeer was a $1.00 at a local thrift store.
The gold material was a hand me down from my mother.
 The white trees Wal Mart and silver stars Big Lots. 
Don't you just love a great find!

 The  brass candle holder is Baldwin from a garage sale of a dear friend. I almost threw this out several years ago as the globe has broken at the base but is still usable.

I am still working on my photo shots sorry. The glassware is Americana by Fosteria, this belong to my mother-in-law. Flatware is Michelangelo.
My tree before everyone invaded.

I have researched and am still trying to identify this glassware. Can anyone help? I also now have the same glass with a gold rim.

Thanks for stopping bye, please leave a comment. Hope to join other sites soon.
