WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY CHINA? Decorating for Christmas #1



I have 4 sets of china but my favorite for the Holidays is the ever popular Old Country Roses!  I think I saw a picture in Victoria Magazine years ago that left memories in mind!  I received an ENGLISH MADE SET from my husband for our 40th anniversary when a lady came in my store selling it at a bargain price! 





I have just begun getting out Christmas at my house and the tree is yet to be produced.....








The angel below was a gift from an employee many years ago- thank you Annie Read!



and of course my 50's punch bowl set from the Salvation Army - now that was a bargain!



As you can see we got a little snow recently!

Hello Bernideen,
I always love the Old Country Roses pattern but with the golden chargers and the MOP-handeled flatware it is just gorgeous. Such a pretty table! I really love it with all those angels and berries and so on. Thank you for showing it.
Greetings, Johanna

Absolutely beautiful Bernierdeen! OCR is one of the best selling china patterns of all time! I only stock the English made because it is si different to the newer editions made in Indonesia & china. What a gorgeous table setting! You've done it again!!! :)
