I have a full set of this china, from Lenox, that Mr. O and I started buying years ago. I LOVE this pattern and now it has been discontinued so outlets and high end discount stores are about the only places left to find it.
Imagine my surprise when I went into Home Good and found it. They didn't have a lot of it, but they did have some coffee cups.
I did call Mr. O for a decision on weather to buy them, he didn't answer his phone. So I shopped the rest of the store circled back, made an "executive decision" and put 4 in my cart. LOL He is not a coffee or tea drinker so it was never important, to him, if we had coffee cups for the set or not.
The candelabra is an old Home Interior piece that had been my Mom's. I only use it during the holidays now and store it decorated. I normally use long tapers in it, but I have become addicted to the flameless candles. So much safer when the GDs are around.
So now the house is decorated and all my shopping is finished, and only some baking is left to be done. I am waiting till Friday so my GD Megan can help me when I get to have her all day. That reminds me I need food coloring and have to get out the cookie cutters.......

|The mantel. The small desk to the left was made by my FIL when he was in high school. Plate above is an antique for Mr. O's aunt, they were antiques dealers at one time and she passed a lot of things to us.|
|Under the TV, sorry not the best shot. Three angles were my Mom's, more Home Interior|
|My nutcracker I won when I worked for West Elm stands at the front door. The table is a family heirloom too. It was bought by Mr. O's grandmother for HER mother, with the first check she made teaching school. No the telephone doesn't work.|
Well, it is time to stop rattling on and get linked up with Elizabeth and Bluebeard and see what's in everyone's cup, mug, or glass. Hope you will join us.
