For those who commented on where I bought my "PURE BUTTER" platter~ I bought it several years ago at The Beautiful Life. The last time I checked they could no longer get them. Here is a site where you can purchase a "CHEESE" platter. EmmaBridgewater Pottery. My sister Kathy bought it. It looks just like my PURE BUTTER platter. Kathy put a large cloche/dome on it.
My HUGE thanks to Cathy of Cobblestone Farms and her Mother, Brenda for sending me the most precious gifts ever!
This lil' bowl of cherries was from Brenda's collection. Cathy wrote in the note that her Mother suffers from diabetes and she has nearly lost all her vision. Cathy wrote that she shares in detail pictures of my Cherry Hill Cottage. She also wrote they decided together that I should have this lil' bowl of cherries, that they thought I would enjoy it mingled in with all the things I treasure. She said, I hope it makes you smile the way you have helped make my mom smile....
Tears...tears....tears....I was so touched.
I wished Cathy and Brenda had been here, I needed to
give them a
To let you know Cathy and Brenda, it's one of my most "favorite things" I have it on my kitchen island, that is where it will stay. And... it makes me ((smile)) every time I look at it!!
Cathy also sent me this adorable ornament. She handpainted the Cherry Hill Cottage
and the cherries on it.
I have it hanging in my kitchen, off my pot rack, so I can enjoy it!
Cathy wrote that it's for my red and white Christmas tree. It will go front and center. After Christmas, back to the kitchen!
This lil' cute ornament is from my sweetsweetsweet friend Elsie.

Love the cupcake with the "cherry" on top! I love that it's a lil' red cake stand w/ a cloche.
