Alex’s Retro Thanksgiving Table and Marvelous Mantel

Pix_from_house 145I gots pretty pretties to show!!  Thanks to Alex for the great pics of her Thanksgiving table.  I originally meant to post my own table today, but Alex’s was so much prettier that I decided to dump mine and go with hers instead. 🙂

Alex writes: The dishes are marked Harmony House Melmac.  The glasses are unmarked, but they have a vintage pattern.  Not sure about their age.  The bread warmer is marked 1951, and this was the first time I’ve used it.  It worked wonderfully!  I’ve also included some pics from my mantle.  Most of the pieces belonged to my parents, and there are a few vintage yard sale finds mixed in.

Very nice, Alex!  I love  it all. What I think is totally great is that I recently received that very same bun warmer from my aunt!  Crazy, isn’t it?  Glad to hear that it worked, now I am excited to try mine as well.

    Cool mantle, cool table, cool everything!

    Harmony House I think was Sears-Roebuck. The bread/roll warmer is the bomb!

    Ruth, your aunt has great retro taste, LOL!

    Oooohhhh, I really think those leaf plates are super cool Alex! I think you are right Sable, I think Harmony House was Sears. I love your whole table setting. I love your mantle too – I LOVE all that kitschy old stuff!

    Thanks, guys! I kind of mix and match things. My dining room table was my grandmother’s. She used to hack up whatever animal they were having for dinner on it. The marks are still visible. 😉 Some people think it’s gross, but I thought it was neat. I can’t wait to see other pictures, Ruth.
