And of course...the dishes. For as long as I can remember, we used these green square dishes by Franciscan China.
Although the majority are a deep, dark green...
there are several assorted lime green pieces which add to the fun. Over the years, these dishes have acquired quite a few chips and scratches, just adding to their charm.
And how many of us had these Santa mugs? Oh so vintage, Santa's beady blue eyes always seem to follow you.
"He looks a little sketchy", according to my daughter, Sofie.
Equally vintage is this rustic red linen runner with a green edge, bearing the wax drips and wine stains of many a holiday dinner. Not so fancy, really...but the memories are priceless. I can't wait to see all the fabulous holiday tables this and every week at Between Naps on the Porch.
