For several years I’ve received as gifts various pieces from the Skating Scotties pattern by Global Design Connections by Kate Williams. When I saw the salad plates this year at Home Goods, I scooped them right up. Then my daughter found the dinner plates at her Home Goods and a tablescape was born.
I really like this pattern because it can be used throughout the winter and not just at Christmas time. I placed the plates on deep green thrifted placemats and fully intended to do a table setting for four. Somehow I misplaced the extra placemats between getting them from their storage spot and putting them on the table. So a table for two is what you see instead. Do you ever do that?
Of course as soon as I’d taken these photos, what did I find? Yeah, the other placemats. It’s Murphy’s Law my friends.
I’ve used red napkins which I have had for ages (although I don’t think they qualify as vintage just yet) and the napkin rings my friend “S” gifted me with after one of our thrifting adventures.
I am using the Boopie glasses which were gifted by “S”. She also gave me the heads up about the Ruby Red Glasses which she found in one of our favorite thrift shops and told me about.
In the final plate stack it’s hard to see, but the stack starts with a thrifted black plate.
Then I added the Skating Scotties dinner plate.
And finally, the salad plate. The flatware I used was another yard sale find. It is a Williamsburg pattern hotel plate made by Wm. A. Rogers (Oneida Ltd.)
You can see the ceramic Scotties I bought at a hospital thrift shop after being alerted to their presence by Amy T. They are keeping watch over this setting.
It almost looks like that Scottie is keeping a watch on YOU, too, doesn’t it?
You can also see the Skating Scotties butter dish plate (without its lid) in the picture above. It is holding Southern Living at Home votives found at the same yard sale “S” found the napkin rings.
Here are a few photos which include some of these other pieces as I’ve used them this season.
This vintage Christmas table cloth is a thrift find. The pewter coffee set was my mother’s.
Here is a close up view of the adorable Skating Scotties bowl. A co-worker gifted me with this bowl; thanks BZ! The red-handled bakelite spoons were from a recent yard sale; they were in the Free section of the sale. They were packaged in an old cardboard spice box with only the metal portions showing so I didn’t see the handles until I left the sale. I think I squealed a little bit when I saw those handles and realized they were most likely bakelite! And they were Free! I hope to do a post soon to show you the other Free items I got at this sale.
I will probably not post again before the holidays, so I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope you enjoyed the Skating Scotties. Happy Holidays to all!
