Bold and Free Thursday 3

Its time to choose three things to showcase. I want to share my ceramic lamb which is an antique that my Mom had. He claims a corner on the living room carpet and is a great conversation piece. His length is about 30".


This plate was painted on porcelain in 1928 by a great uncle. Mother displayed it in the china hutch, as I do today. The handles are gold, but seem not to show up properly.


This is a hobnail cake plate from the early 1900's. It was often used at Mom's dinner parties at dessert time. Always beautiful! I remember a cake on it once that was decorated all around the edge at the bottom with fresh summer flowers.

Hope you enjoyed this little bit from my history!

beautiful...thanks for sharing. I can vision the cake with the flowers. My granny used to put her christmas cake on a cake stand like yours...my uncles used to fight over who'd get the first piece.
I love lambs...and yours is so pretty. I collect them to use when I work Emmaus Walks in our community...they bring peace whenever they're in any room...love it!

Thanks for always stopping by my blog :) Now I've stopped by yours to say hello!

And I wish I was more organized. I think I keep track of most things except my house which I ignore so I can write :) I just put up another chapter - getting so close to being done!!

My heart aches for you over the situation with your daughter!! I will keep you and the phone call in my prayers... it's so hard sometimes, but we can never give up on our children!!
In Christ!!

I love the cake plate! What a special heirloom! I hope you're doing great! I haven't been on blogger as much lately as I was starting a couple of classes this week...I was constantly planning pretty much, but now I know my students and have my materials organized for the semester so it will be a breeze.
I can't believe Peru is just a month away!!!
I will be continuing the story soon!
Blessings,
Amy
