When I was little, I used to ask my mom every year to walk by the Christmas Home section at Marshall Field's so that I could look at these Waechterbach Christmas dishes. I just loved them so much! When I was in college, one of my gifts under the tree was 4 of the large plates- I about died! I never asked for them (and, seriously, what college kid would?) but was SO excited. I've been collecting them ever since and now have a 8 full sets. I'd love to have 12 total, so I'm still working on the last 4 settings. Now that I'm an adult and have seen many of the other patterns out there, I still think mine is my favorite!! I do have some of the fun extras like the butter dish, the spreaders and the salt and pepper shakers, plus 5 different platters. I do not have the pitcher seen above, nor do I have the mugs. Those are on my "watch out for" list. I'm so excited to have a dining room now so that I can set these out during the holiday season and decorate around them!
Do any of you have Christmas dishes? Do you have the Lenox set, the Spode set or mine?? I'd love to know if you do and why you chose that set (or if they're great grandmas that was handed down to you!)
