Cozy Kitchen Comfort & Joy

It has been a long, long time since I've had a new set of dishes. The last set of dishes I bought was a set of blue enamel-ware dishes from Lehman's in Holmes County, Ohio ~ Amish Country; back when the girls were little & just big enough to help wash the dishes & I wanted a set that I didn't have to worry about them dropping & breaking.

So . . . I consider this purchase one last CHRISTmas gift from my mom. She was all about making your home beautiful & welcoming, I think she would be pleased.

Last week I purchased a set of beautiful winter-themed dishes called Snow Valley by St. Nicholas Square. (ALL 1/2 priced!!!) Ooh, aah! I just love them. One of my favorite things is log cabins & this set ~ which I found out is added onto each year ~ fills that bill in spades!

I got a 6 place settings ~ 4 for our family, 1 for our soon-to-be son-in-law & 1 for whoever the Lord has for DD#2's future. :-)

First, there is the gorgeous log home . . .

Then, the frisky reindeer . . .

A squared bowl w/the cabin on one side & the reindeer on the other . . .

And a lovely, homey mug w/the cabin scene, once again.

These have quickly become the family's favorite mugs, whether they are using them during supper or just for a mug full of coffee, hot chocolate, tea or soft drink.

Cozy winter comfort & joy. It's the little things in life.

Blessings from Ohio . . . Kim<><
