Several weeks ago I spied these plates and mugs and thought they might make a nice modern winter setting. Since the plates were rather small and I already have several sets of Christmas / winter dishes, I passed them up. After reading about the Dollar Tree Christmas Challenge, an idea started to form. Back to the store I went and purchased these two plates, the mugs and glasses, a small bottle brush tree, holiday bling and some mittens. I had already bought these placemats on sale after the holidays last year.
Since the plates are luncheon size, I thought I'd use them at the kitchen island.
I thought the mittens were a fun way to display the flatware. I used green napkins I already had and stuck them in the mugs. The little village vignette was made from Dollar Tree houses.
They started this way.
And after spray painting them white and adding white glitter here and there, they ended up this way.
I really like these plates and mugs and am looking forward to using them for breakfast or lunch You may even see them again soon in a different setting!
And now for another Dollar Tree sharing moment....
Several years ago, I was at the Dollar Tree in a neighboring town when I saw this little village. I fell in love with it and brought it home ... all for $20! Since then, I've added a few trees and a couple of houses I received as gifts. The last several years it's been on top of the dining room hutch.
