See that big brown transferware platter on the top shelf?  It was a surprise gift from a friend recently.
 It's huge.  It's heavy.  It's old.
 It is beautiful in its simplicity.
What's not to love?
Thanks Maryvonne.  I was surprised and thrilled beyond belief.

I'll be showing off my platter at the following linky parties.  Check them out for more inspiration.

You must have a very close and beautiful friendship for MaryVonne to give you such a special gift. You must be a special friend yourself. Embrace and enjoy your friendship.
I am green with envy over that platter, it's exquisite.

What a great friend to purchase something like that great platter for you. It looks wonderful on your shelf

I love transferware also. I have a couple trying to find a place of honor in my house to show them off, all my shelves are full

Hi Miss Sally~
It is gorgeous! I am into browns these days too - something so warm, comfortable and inviting! Thank you for stopping by and your kind words! How's it up at your end? Have you ever been to Decor Galore off of exit 115? I think that is what it is called. Someone was telling me about it...said it was similar to Seabels but not as pricey. Anyway, hope to make it there some day.

Luv it!

Morning Sally,

That is the PERFECT gift for you. I know you'll smile every time you see it or use it.

Have a great day.
