I know many of you are arm deep in turkey preps, but I am not having Turkey Day here. I have my 4 dishes I have been assigned, but still I don't have all the other preps that go along with having 20 for dinner. :)
So I am thinking ahead a bit. I don't have one decoration out, so don't worry. I know some people have their trees up, but I will wait. Never before Thanksgiving here.
Until a few years ago we had a wonderful little Noritake Outlet about 45 min from here. I visited frequently, and would head to the huge stacks of clearance in the back. Oh, the bargains I found! This is one of them. It is called Holiday Rhythm, and this is a cake plate. I waited and waited for them to be marked down, and finally, Joe, who I got to know from visiting so often, asked if I wanted them for a dollar!
Very cooly, I replied, "Oh, ok." So I took 20 of them! They are so handy for appetizer or cake plates And they blend very nicely with my formal Christmas China, Lenox Eternal Christmas. (discontinued) These were way more than a dollar, lol, no Bargain on these! And now that they are discontinued, wow, I saw I set on ebay for a lot. DH says, SELL! But I won't, I love them, and hope my dil will someday enjoy them.
Bargains are a Favorite Thing for me, ( go see Laurie!) and apple pastry on a sunny Fall Sunday is perfect for Seasonal Sundays with The Tablescaper!
Happy Thanksgiving, America!
PSST, don't forget the $55 give away from CSN on the 15th for the White Christmas Party. See details on the top of my sidebar. :)
