Playing with Dishes and Mud Pie

I love playing with dishes!  My mom loves beautiful dishes too so maybe I came by it honestly.  Christmas brings out the child in us all and while shopping in Cinnamon and Bears I found the cutest Mud Pie Christmas ornaments.   I thought they would be perfect on my Christmas tree and so pretty on a holiday table!
The Santa ornament is adorable!

I layered my fun little ornaments on some of my favorite dishes and put them in my three-tiered server to use as decorations in my dining room.  

Mud Pie makes some of the cutest baby clothes I ever seen and they also make these beautiful and colorful ornaments!  

The Rudolph sits atop a layer of dishes I've collected over the years.

The candy cane luncheon plates were gifts and I love their
pretty borders.

When I collect plates I look for pretty borders..or an interesting pattern.  I love how the borders look layered together and the Snowman is the finishing touch.

I had fun playing with dishes and Mud Pie..hope you are enjoying the 
Holiday Season!!

 Merry Christmas!
