cakeplate
for the ladylike baker.
in my dreamworld, i would drop by the neighborhood antique shop and run into one of these elegant beauties. and maybe it would even turn out to be a pretty jadite like one from rachel's table.
then i would wrap my arms around it in wonder, pay the kind lady at the counter, and cradle it in my lap as we drive home. and forevermore it would grace my table and coax me to host scads of tea parties, showers, and such. the end.
santa baby, i want a ruffly cake plate for christmas, please.

Oh, it's so lovely! And so funny that you mention mine because as soon as I saw that picture I gasped a little and thought "want it, want it, want it". I have an addiction.

about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
