Happy Pink Saturday from Under 3–4 Feet of Snow~~~

…yes, that’s right – we’re still snowing. Actually, this is pretty typical for us and I really do love it – I’m sure my husband doesn’t feel the same as I do since he does all the snow blowing, etc. He will be out there all day today! He closed up shop early yesterday, because the snow was blowing so hard - we literally were in white out all day and people were staying in and staying warm. I’ve never seen the snow so high on our deck. I’ll try to get pics today and post tomorrow or Tuesday. It really is beautiful!

Enough about that – on to Pink Saturday – and I want to thank all of you for all your inspirational comments last week. I didn’t realize they kept coming in all week, and just read the last of them today – so I will get back to you all – promise.

This is the sweetest little dish and such beautiful pink flowers and embossed edging – you can see a little bit in the photo and if you click on it maybe you can see it better. I have no idea what it was used for……….

except that on this one, the person I bought it from wrote on her tag “butter pat”, so maybe the one above was also used for that purpose. I have always been fascinated with the little serving pieces used in times past.  When I was growing up, my mother had little serving pieces – like salt cells – that’s what she called them. Do you know what they are? Tiny cut glass bowls – probably no bigger than an 1 – 1 1/2” in diameter with a tiny little spoon for scooping out salt to add to your food. I just love all that! And, I inherited them – although I do not use them, maybe I will now.

Anyway, these are just the sweetest things, and as you can see I have them on hangers to hang with the platter I showed you a couple of weeks ago.

and some tags new baby tags to my Etsy – the poem on these are just so precious…

Loved all your pretty photos. That small dish could also have been a bread plate too. The tags are lovely.

Your tags are just lovely. Have a wonderful day.

Love your little butter pat and the salts were used to dip your veggies in, like radishes and cellery. They were individual so you could double dip.
They also had bone dishes to lay your chop, chicken, rabbit bones in. They curve on the inside so you can set the dish in the upper left corner of your table setting.
Fun post!
Hugs- Tete

Oh, and I was hoping for snow but only rain so far for us. I don't think I would like to have to dig out of it though:-/

Happy Pink Saturday
Hugs and Warm Wishes, CindyLew

Dru, you are such a sweetheart. I love the comment you left on my blog. Thank you so much.
I think your plates are just so pretty and I would use those for all sorts of things, cheese, cookies and the like.
I do remember salt sellers, they look gorgeous on a table with little spoons and salt in them. I have also seen them used as votive candle holders, that might be something you could do esp. during the holidays....
Happy Pink Saturday to you and blessings to your husband who is out shoveling all the white stuff!
Your tags are lovely, quite a talent you have, Char

What a beautiful share. Love your little plate. So many uses I am sure. It is so pretty and the detail is gorgeous.

Love your tags. How pretty they all are. You are so great with details sweet one.

No snow here in the desert, but they are calling for rain. We shall see. I would just appreciate a sunny day myself. I am SO ready for the heat. Just bring it on.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Hello my friend!! Your tags are AMAZING and I particularly enjoyed the photos of the pretty rose plates and your story about the salt vessels. My mother has a few of those in her china cabinet but I don't recall them ever being used!

Keep up the good work and thanks for all the inspiration!!

Gina said...

Yikes I can't imagine that much snow! I love all those old serving pieces too, I think more than anything it is their small size that fascinates me. Gorgeous tags!!
