Cupcakes and Muffins and Sandwiches, O My!
You've seen the antique and book stores we visited on our recent trip to the Oregon Coast but I haven't shown you what I found in an antique mall near the beach. Not long ago I shared a bit of my yellow depression glass collection with you. My mission that day at the beach was more to accompany my dear little mother and help her enjoy time antiquing. Way in the back of the big building, from a small vendor stall, I heard my dear mother say, "Oh, you're going to like this!" And she was right! The most wonderful big yellow cake plate. I couldn't leave it there. No, it just had to come home with me. And it did! Isn't it gorgeous? It looks great on a lace tablecloth. . .With the lace pattern showing through.And I just love the little pedestal. Until I decide where to display this new treasure it is at home on my corner hutch.Under the pedestal bowl of the same pattern. I can imagine my new plate filled with gorgeous cupcakes. Maybe some delectable muffins. Or sweet little finger sandwiches. Maybe for tea. Maybe for brunch. Perhaps lunch or a party. No matter what, it certainly will be part of special moments spent with family and friends.
