CHRISTMAS GLASSES AND MUGS

I didn't think that I decorated that much, but after snapping so many photos, I guess I do! Here are my Christmas glasses, mugs, and eggnog cups.

Starting the tour is my set of egg nog cups and bowl.

A variety of eggnog cups. The Peter Rabbit is really a kids mug, but I drink eggnog from it.

I love the font used for the words on this one. I forget what the glass is called (rocks?), but it's shorter and wide - I can barely get my hand around it. Three views to show all sides. I only have one, but would love to have a set.

Finally, my Villeroy & Boch "Naif Christmas" dishes. I was going to do a tablescape, but then you wouldn't be able to see all the lovely artwork on each piece.

I lived in Belgium in 1985 and 1986 doing lay missionary work (graphic arts). Belgium is right next to Luxemborg where the Villeroy & Boch factory is. That's where I first heard of V&B and fell in love with their designs. Of course I had no idea at the time that they were so expensive here in the States! But my mother-in-law has given me most of my pieces as gifts!

I love all of your dishes, mugs and glassware but especially the punch bowl and eggnog cups. I've seen them but they were high! :)
Merry Christmas!

Love the Tom and Jerry set. I've always been intrigued by those, but I haven't taken the plunge yet. Your glasses and mugs are sweet too. Where do you keep them the rest of the year? I'm always curious about what people do with all their Christmas pretties.

I have a set of 8 of those glasses that you have one of and I have no idea what they are called either. I do love them though!
