Snow Day and New Plates

Brrrrrr its a snowy, blustering, blowing kind of day out there!  AND we got a snow afternoon from work.  Our office closed at noon and I’m home with a free gifted Friday afternoon.  Love it! 

I wanted to show you the new plates I picked up at Pier 1 last night while on my way to Chapters Book store right next door.  Seeeee…peeking from under my white salad/soup plate?  langstons-to-xmas-decorations-004

red and white with a lovely bird…langstons-to-xmas-decorations-015

  Now they only had 2 of them left so I am going to call another location and have more put aside for me.  I just love them!  They go nicely with the white plates and are  one of my favourite colours…red.  I plan on making some napkins to go with them.


This Christmas as I’ve paid for items the cashiers have noted all the reds in my purchase AND my red coat too!  I hope others in my family are loving the colour because it looks like Santa in HIS red suit is sharing the colour this Christmas.

You know how I love salt and pepper shakers well here is another Fitz and Floyd set I have and love to put out at Christmas.   langstons-to-xmas-decorations-0301 

So what to do on this free found afternoon?  I came home and changed into something real comfy and I have the Christmas music on.  I have 9 dozen cookies to bake this weekend for Monday’s cookie exchange at work as well as finishing some Christmas shopping. 

Today I’ll stay inside and enjoy the day.  I hope you have a lovely day too!  Judi

Another Fitz & Floyd Salt & Pepper Set

I am sharing another Fitz and Floyd salt and pepper shaker set I adore.  One of them is a bunny and I love bunnies.  It isn’t the right season for this set but here it is anyway.  I had admired it for some time in the stores and a few years ago while the love bunny and I were in Houston right after Christmas I found it for a steal on clearance! 

Today I took a drive during lunch to do a little thrifting.  What was I thinking…not very much apparently because I didn’t realize I didn’t have my debit card with me.  At least not the one that has money in it.  I was really annoyed when I found a perfect sized white soup touraine.  I have wanted one so badly and there it was.  I had it in my hand along with a pretty Poppy china plate when it hit me that I had no money and couldn’t buy it.  They will only accept cash or the RIGHT debit card so with much regret I left them there.  I might make a bunny jaunt over there again tomorrow at lunch and see if it might still be there..*crossing my fingers*.  Now the bad thing about going there right away tomorrow is that there was also a 3 piece white cannister set I admired.  Today I was able to walk away from it but if its there tomorrow?  who knows…

Do you collect Fitz and Floyd pieces?   Is there something that you absolutely love to collect in F&F or something else?
