The Old Christmas Toys Tablescape


A mix of old and newer.

The truck, top, and jack in the box are my toys. The bear is a couple of years old, from Hallmark.


A Fitz and Floyd Santa plate and Santa mugs I made for my daughters when they were little.


 


 I remember getting this tea set at Christmas and I even remember the box it came in.

Green glass sherbet dishes from a thrift store. I don't know the maker of this Santa, it says CR on the back. Christopher Radko? Plates from a garage sale, and flatware is Oneida Venetia given to me by an aunt for my hope chest (!) when I was a teenager. She bought me pieces for every occasion.

Hi Pat! Now I'm a kid at heart, so everything here is a treat to see, but I'm a big sap too, so I LOVE the little Santa mugs you made for your daughters!.. Wishing you blessings and lots of holiday fun in the days ahead! ~tina

This is just delightful! It reminds me of my childhood -- I still have SOME of my china teaset. I remember the ribbon candy, too -- my Great-Aunt Bess always had a candy jar ready when we visited. And I think I had a jack-in-the-box exactly like yours!
