~~~My New Turkey Platter!!!~~~

 Happy Friday, or as I like to call it, elastic pants day:):) I hope you all had A wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving. We did and I am very grateful for all my blessings. Yesterday my daughter used this turkey platter and I remarked how pretty it was and how much I liked it. She gave it to me and was grateful for me to take it cause she doesn't like it!!!!!!!!!!!! I am giving her my PLAIN one:) I love the scenes and embellishments along the edge of the platter.
 The colors are also so pretty to me. I have a set of green dishes  (anyone surprised???:):) and they will look nice with this too.
 I look forward to next year to do another pretty table with this platter too.


We are having guests today. Tomorrow I will go decorate my daughters tree and stair railings (all 60 feet of it). Then I can start MY house and I am antsy as can be to GET TO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have a beautiful day. XO, Pinky

It's a beautiful platter, Pinky.

I am decorating bit by bit. Really moving slow. Maybe that's a good thing.:-)

Oh you lucky girl, that is such a gorgeous platter. I love it and the edge and center picture are so pretty. I am sure you will really enjoy using it. Your 45th Tablescape in the previous post is stunning also. Hope you had a super holiday. Hugs, Marty

Pinky, you came out ahead on this one. I love these transfer ware turkey platters. I can just see this with green dishes. ;-)

Dolores said...

Isn't it wonderful how we're all so different in our taste....... you're daughter can enjoy your platter and you hers.

Wish you were here to help me decorate a little bit.... my neighbors are decorating, and all I want to do is be sad. Oh well, I know I'll get better..... it just takes time.
Hugs,

Pinky,
Love that you and your daughter have a swap 'n shop with your home decor!!! Brings back the memories of my MoMa when she would bring me something of hers and say,
"This looks like it belongs in your house!"..and it always did!!! What a lovely Turkey Platter! I'm still chuckling from "elastic pants day"...too, too funny, dear friend!
Fondly,
Pat

I love the platter!! Sounds like a perfect swap I laughed out loud when I read, "Elastic Pant’s Day". 60 feet of banister...wow. I hope we'll get to see what you do!

That is so pretty, Pinky. I keep looking at nice turkey platters, but having pulled the plug on buying one yet.

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Wow! So sweet of her to give it to you. I really like it! It has similar features to both my new plates and my platter though it is still different from each one. I know you will enjoy using it next year! I am chomping at the bit to get started on Christmas decorating as well. Have fun and snap some pics of your daughters decor for us if you can. LOL! Enjoy!

Kelly said...

That was nice of your daughter to give that to you. Sounds like you both got a good deal in the end. That is a beautiful platter! I know you must be looking forward to decorating your new house for the holidays. Can't wait to see it!

Maria C said...

Oh, what a beautiful platter! It goes so well with my new Woodland dishes! Ha! I look forward your showcasing in a future tablescape. I have a feeling your daughter may change her mind when she realizes how lovely it truly is.

Love, love your turkey platter. If you get tired of it, I know where it could find a good home! Hope you had a blessed day with family and friends.

Mary said...

What a gorgeous platter Pinky, lucky you! Happy Decorating, I know you're anxious to get to yours in your new home!

Jacqueline said...

What a wonderful gift! I think I would have felt that way when I was younger and wanted plain too, now I treasure something like this. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! How the year slips by!

Susan Herin said...

Anonymous, I don't know where my daughter got it but you could probably find one at Tuesday morning, or Home Goods maybe next year... happy hunting.:):)

My family has the same platter and I was wondering if anyone knew more about them. It was my grandfather's and he got it from his parents. It was odd that it was marked made in japan on the back. I'm just wondering how my grandfather's parents got it and where it came from. Can anyone help?
