My favorite J & G Meinkin Romantic England Ironstone dishes. The salad plate features three grazing dears in front of Kent 13th Century Penhurst Place, thus transforming this set into a lovely Christmas setting.
This year I found the oversized deer at my favorite store, Home Goods. I like the modern paired with the vintage.
I found these water goblets online through Amazon.com, Royal Danube hand and mouth blown glass ($24 for four). I bought all they had available so I can set a table for 16 on Christmas day.
Pearl napkin rings with silver bell ornaments.
Built-in cabinet for storing way too many collections of vintage hammered aluminum, Pope Gosser Rose Point china, oversized Martini glasses, silver nativity scene and yet another Santa. Why can't I resist buying them?
So I've set the table, put up the decorations and I'm looking forward to our grown-up sons, their wives/fiancee and granddaughter coming to visit. Can't wait!
