One of my favorite things

It's simple, I know. A covered cake plate. Would you believe it took five years to choose just the right one and obtain it?

As I grew into an adult, I found myself drawn to classic things. Flowers in vases. Photographs of family on the walls. The one thing I always imagined, something I had never seen in real home but only in magazines, was a covered cake plate. I wanted to have a pretty way to display whatever goodies were in the house. I wanted goodies to always be there to eat in moderation.

My mother gave this plate to me two years ago for Christmas. It's always on the table. This week it's displaying the cupcakes that are leftover from the baby's first birthday celebration. Who knows what it will hold when they are gone?

Ooooh I love it. I haven't found the right one for me yet. I'm looking though!

Crate & Barrel. I'm such a sucker for their stuff. And my mother is such a "click and buy" gal!
