More Snow In Tennessee And A Holiday Flashback

We have snow on the ground again in Tennessee.  We have 2-3 inches and the schools are closed.  The snow started me thinking about the wonderful snow we were blessed with on Christmas Day this year.  When I started thinking about Christmas, I realized that I had not posted my post Christmas goodies from my normal after holidays buying trip.  If you are sick of Christmas, feel free to skip, but if you still like a little taste of red and green, here you go.

I found some beautiful things this year at 50-80% off....I love after Christmas shopping.  Found a beautiful white holly tablecloth from Kohls and picked up another Christmas Santa Chef as the one I found last year was claimed and being in the Christmas spirit, I gave him away.  Was lucky enough to find another on sale this year.  Snowman nesting bowls came from Cracker Barrel and the knit stockings and Elf hat are from Lowes.  Pier One had some great items at 60-70% off...I got a set of candleholders with ornaments hanging inside, a tiered Christmas Tree server, some napkins, mini gravy boats, and two cute snowmen.  Dillard's yielded the Red polka dot Christmas bowl peeking out from under the napkins and a cake knife and server set.

The Santa Chef is just so darn cute.  Last year, I thought there was a Mrs Claus with kitchen items as well, but could not find her this year.  I'll look next year and might find her. 

I bought four of the little gravy boats to use as individual serving pitches for syrups for pancake breakfasts....yum.  Hope you enjoyed my little Christmas was fun to relive these beautiful items and share them with you.  As usual, I am astounded that we are already near mid-February.  Hope you are making each day count.

You got some great stuff, Anita! I bought a tablecloth and napkins last week at Tuesday Morning since I couldn't find my Christmas linens this past Christmas. Otherwise, I didn't buy too much because that will just be more I have to pack up and move around when we downsize. I have one of those Santa chefs from Kohls and I think you are right ~ there was a Mrs. Claus that I saw around the holidays.

After Christmas shopping is almost a "season" in itself.
Great finds to enjoy. ~ Sarah

What great finds! We don't have an assortment of stores like that to shop at in my small town. I have to drive 2 hours in either direction to shop! Guess I need to be making more road trips in the future!
Love the mini gravy boats!
