Santa Mugs and More Ironstone Finds

I found a pair of Santa mugs and some more ironstone at the thrift store this week.


The four plates help to fill the new pine buffet and hutch (from this post where I discussed future painting plans).


I also picked up this gravy boat with separate plate. I love ironstone and hope to find even more pieces to add to the kitchen.


Our front porch and family room tree is decorated and now I am working on our living room tree and lots of little vignettes. I hope to be able to share pictures this week. Have you started your Christmas decorating?

You do have the best luck at the thrift stores. I've started decorating our sideboard and mantel. I hope to finish them tomorrow. I just need to figure out a way to attach driftwood to boards - I"m thinking velcro would work.

We used to have those Santa mugs when I was growing up. I think my mom made them in Pottery class. Great memory.
