I JUST bought this piece on eBay!! No one else bid on it. Its big, about 12" long. Should be here next week. :o)
This is the only "colored" piece in the collection
Wow, Karen...these are just gorgeous! I love the whites with gold trim...very elegant! I am really coveting the 'polar bear' one .... sweet ...to go w/my Winterfrost dishes I just posted. ;-) TFSharing & I'll keep my eyes open for that one! Jeanne S.
love love love these!!!
Karen, these are all so beautiful. I can't pick a favorite.
They are all so elegant in their own way. Your new
sleigh w/reindeer is gorgeous. I'm so happy no one
else bid and you have a new one for your collection.
Are all of them this large?
Wow, Karen Elegance is the right word.
They are so beautiful and charming.
Your new one is perfect.
It is just right for your collection.
Very, very pretty and your new piece is awesome.
Punk, most of the pieces aren't real big. The first Santa, and the 4th (little Santa and reindeer w sleigh, are fairly small. About 4" high. Most of the Santas are around 9" I believe. The laying reindeer in other post, and the Penguins, are the big pieces.
I am sorry Mikasa decided to no longer make these. There are quite a few I don't have tho, so if I feel the 'need', LOL, I can still add to mine. Several other Snowmen, I just have the one.
Thank you Gang, for enjoying the collection too. I loved all your sweet comments on it.
Jeanne, you mean the Santa with the arctic animals? That would go with those gorgeous Winterfrost dishes of yours. Since I'm such an animal lover, I really like when I find Santas with 'critters'.
Yes, that's the one, purplemoon...I see one on e-bay ... I'm thinking it over ...quite pricey ... to buy it 'new in a box' ... but I may be worth it! LOL! ;-) Jeanne S.
Darn it Jeanne.....do NOT buy the one you saw on eBay.
Tho I do agree, you are most definitely worth it :o)
Now my cover is blown, you can expect a box the first part of next week from a lady in MN.
Oh no, purplemoon! What did you do? I will be watching for a box next week from MN (my fave state to vacation in) & also will be emailing you later. Your collection is just so beautiful! ~~hugs, Jeanne S.
I love it! Karen, hope that lady ships fast or Jeanne will be
on her way to pick it up in person.LOL Friends are the best.
Oh thanks for the details on your collection, Karen.
Beautiful collection...and I agree >> Elegant looking.
How sweet to think of Jeanne..yep like Punk said -
if that lady doesn't ship quick...Jeanne will be on her
way to pick it up...and yes Punk..friends are the best!
I had hoped to surprise Jeanne, anonymously.....that didn't work out so well. LOL. I felt she needed a little spoiling and when she said how much she loved this piece, it gave me the perfect opportunity to do so. The lady gave me a smokin' deal on it, and said it should be there Monday!! :o).
Oh gosh, PM ... I can hardly wait! I've been watching for something 'polar bear' to match my dishes ... pottery or something & then you go & post your Mikasa 'elegance' ... & I thought...ohhhhh, those polar bears w/Santa would look soooo.oooo cute by my dishes on the counter! :-) Thank you very much friend! ~~hugs, Jeanne S.
Lovely! Can't pick a favorite. I love the color scheme. That little touch of gold lends to the sophistication of the pieces.
