Winter Greetings Serving Platter

Last week on Tablescape Tuesday Susan the photos of her beautiful Lenox China called Winter Greetings. I had seen some of the pieces but, had not seen the serving platter & accent plates with the close up scenes of the snow & birds. I HAD TO HAVE THIS TREASURE! I went to Ebay & saw two of them. One from an individual & one from Replacements, Ltd. I wanted to be sure I got this little treasure & did not want to miss it in last minute bidding wars. So, Buy It Now! And it came yesterday. I made a little vignette on top of my refrigerator using a wonderful bird feeder I have, my new platter, & a little ceramic cardinal sitting in the snow.

This is my bird feeder. I got it in an Antique shop in Salado, Texas. I have never put it outside because I do not want it to get weathered or ruined. It usually sits on my mantle in the Great Room. But, for now... it has a new home.
And here is the beautiful Platter. I just love birds & this platter spoke to my heart. I have the sweetest pair of Cardinals (maybe Red Birds I'm not sure) that come to the bird bath in my back garden. I love to watch them while I sit in my chaise lounge & read my magazines while drinking my morning CUPS of coffee. Life is GOOD! I hope you enjoyed my little treasure as much as I do. And thank you Susan for sharing. Next... the four accent plates of course. :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

I love your platter! Cardinals always remind me of my grandmother. :)

I picked up my art journaling magazine at Boarders. They carry most if not all of the Somerset mags.

Hi Charlene,
both the plate and the birdfeeder look GREAT! What a stunning birdfeeder- I asked hubby to build one for me... sooner or later, I'll have one similar to yours, too!!!!!
