New to me...

I'm frequently the last one to know 
about some amazing item, bargain, or trend.
duh...wow..."isn't that so cool?"

So this post is my latest installment of
"Everyone else may already know... but"
I just had to share this in case there's anyone else out there 
...ah, um...a little uninformed.



this is paper, peeps.








Guess what?
There are now paper plates that are exact replicas 
of the iconic Spode dinnerware!
I did a double-take when I was at the Hallmark Store
looking through the Thanksgiving items.
Yes, my friends... there are now paper plates to be proud of.
Below is the real thing.


and here are the Christmas Tree plates, and napkins.




That's right...again.
They're exactly like the real thing.
only a teensy fraction of the cost.
But yes, you DO have to throw them out,
because washing them and putting them in the cupboard
would be gross...
and creepy. 


another pattern...


I have to admit, there are times that a posh paper plate
with matching napkins can be a "good thing". 
Appetizers, cookies, (multiple desserts), assorted cheese, crackers and dips.
...when you have unexpected knoshers waiting at the counter.
Yes, there are times when a Spode look-alike will gladly do.

This is not a sponsored post, 
just thought these were wonderful!
Also while at Hallmark, I found a great package 
of assorted Plaid Christmas Gift Wrap.
LOVIN' them all, oh yeah.



Did they read my mind or what?




Today, I even dipped my toes in the plaid/leopard pond...

Dillard's Royal Stewart Plaid Scarf
purchased many years ago.


I'll never be a fashion blogger,
but with black leggings and boots
it was a fun new look for me.

I know, I don't get out much...

This is the week that I get all antsy to decorate for Christmas,
My tree is up but my Velvet Pumpkins are still out for Thanksgiving.
Some greenery has been added to the mantel,
and my Holly Burlap Tablerunner has crept out of the Linen Closet.
The Plaid is ready...
