Christmas Shopping and a Little Something for Me

I've loved the Johnson Bros. china ever since I first saw it.
Every fall, I lust after the beautiful shades of brown, russet, and teal.
Whenever I see a display in a store,
I'll pick up a plate and lovingly run my hand over it.
Big sigh!

Then I look at the cost and realize it is not in the budget for this year.
Visiting blogs this year, I've learned that
one of the terms to use is "Transferware."
I see it everywhere now and
love the red and blue and black and really, all of it.

Yesterday, I was in HomeGoods and saw this coffee cup.
I picked it up as always and it was marked down to $2.00!!!!!
I now am the proud owner of some Johnson Bros. Transferware!
This pattern is called "His Majesty."

I'm only kicking myself for not buying two so that I could have
a pair to drink coffee with my husband.
Maybe next year.

The past few times I've been in Hobby Lobby,
I've looked at this beautiful music box.
It looks just like the thing my mother would love for Christmas.
It's $29.99 and just out of reach.
Yesterday, it was on sale for 50% off.
Christmas shopping for my mother-done!

Look at these adorable little feet!
It plays Joy to the World.
