You Take the Cake!!
One of the vintage covered cake plates I picked up at auction. It's a little more pink and less peach than it appears here. The plate it sits upon is glass. It will go atop my kitchen cupboards.

Here's a plate I bought recently, that is now hanging upon my kitchen wall.... I love the little cottage scene, so dreamy.....




And another cake carrier I picked up at auction. These cake carriers didn't go cheap; there were others there wanting them almost as badly as I did! :)
This one has pink flowers; though they almost look white here. Oh, and it has a pretty glass knob! (I hope my husband doesn't get the wrong idea and think this means I'm going to bake a bunch of cakes now! ;)

Here are a couple of items in my shoppe.......

the little lady is a gift tag; available in my etsy shoppe or at http://www.ofbluebirdsandroses.com/
which is where you'll find these two rose plates.









I cut these little "paper doll" tags out by hand; and then highlighted them with glitter. They are from a vintage postcard image. I really enjoy creating things like this!

Becca,
WHAT EYE CANDY!!! I went to your website (why haven't I seen that before???) and what fun stuff you have!!!
I am truly jealous of the cottage plate you got and wondered if there are any makers marks on the back so I can be on the look out for them. THAT ONE TAKES THE CAKE!!!!
Thank you so much for all of your blessings, prayers and writings to me during this breast cancer ordeal. I truly appreciate your friendship...
Hugs to you my friend, Amy (Mom to the Four Sisters)
