Show & Tell Friday

This platter is one of my prized possessions,
not just because it's chintz, but because
it's covered with the most gorgeous abundance
of roses in shades of pink that come very
close to perfection. I even love the pattern
name, Victorian Roses.


It also survived a harrowing trip from Canada
after the package was opened and inspected...then
merely placed back in the box, loose, with no
padding or wrapping around it, and sent on it's
way! How it arrived in one piece I'll never know...

It did break my sister's plate on the trip, but
let's not dwell on that ugliness! :)

Now be sure to drop by
There Is No Place Like Home

to see what other treasures the girls are
showing and telling this week!

  6. The rose platter is gorgeous. I'm glad you received it in good condition. Custom officials don't seem to care if things are broken as long as they are what is stated on the package. I enjoyed you show and tell.
    Blessings,
