Tablescape Thursday - Smoky Mountain China Mart Goodness

Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting another Tablescape Thursday.  Please bounce over to her site and check out the other great tablescapes.


When I win the lottery (notice that positive voice) I am going to have a Dishroom, just like the White House, and I'm going to fill it with every type of dishware and flatware that I can get my greedy little hands on.  I think I'm addicted.....do I need an intervention?



While on my recent trip to the mountains, I visited the China and Gift Mart and took in all the beautiful dishes.  I wanted to share some of my favorites.



This Christmas set from Youngs is really beautiful.



Each plate is marked with a wonderful verse. 



This Christmas collection from M Bagwell is so cute...lots of whimsy.






Black and white polka dots, another collection from M Bagwell...absolutely divine.



A classic and more traditional Christmas collection.



Hope you enjoyed this little stroll through some of my 'future' collections.  As soon as my ship comes in, I plan to stock it with all this deliciousness.  Man, I hope we don't sink.

All the best,


Pin It!

I'm with you, I want a dish room like the White House. How much fun to go to the China and Gift Mart. Rather dangerous!!! I think I want the black and white polka dot pieces.

What a wonderful store! I'd love to have one of those near me, but it's probably good that I don't because I'd probably be broke! Thanks for sharing your fun adventure.

Wow! What a great place!

tardevil said...

Oh, I do hope your ship doesn't sink and that you win the lottery. I love the idea of a dish room. I've even had to start putting mine in boxes in my master bedroom closet, and you know a woman has NO extra room in there anyway! I think I need an intervention too. I would have never made it out of that dish/gift show alive...would have had respiratory failure - no doubt!

Anita @ Far Above Rubies said...

Wow, these are just fabulous!! Where is this place?? I love dishes too, so I'll be back to visit you!
