I made the suggestion to Shawn that we might consider doing Meatless Monday every so often. With a wry smile on his face, he agreed.
I knew as well as he did that if I made, say a big green salad absent of meat, that he'd ask where's the meat? I know he knows that I know his idea of Meatless Monday really means Meat Less the vegetables Monday. mmhh, hhh.
That's my carnivorous husband.
But, if you can forego the meat and you like to re-purpose things in unexpected ways like I do, then I've come up with a perfect, and beautiful, match.
This stunning teal transferware Well & Tree Platter needs nothing altered to convert it into an instant vanity tray or soap dish!
As I admired this piece today while photographing it to list to my shop I thought that the well (which is where the juices from a roast or meat would pool in) would be a perfect spot to hold coins, rings, small bath items like q-tips or what-nots.
In a guest bathroom, wouldn't it be gorgeous with a bar of soap in the well and the fancy, thick, disposable hand towels (or regular ones rolled up) laid at an angle on the platter? Perhaps a small bud vase filled with a single rose would be nice on it as well? I think it would be lovely.
I like this idea a lot. The teal sure looks pretty paired with some of my purple transferware, but I'm holding out to find one that is purple.
As I played around with this today I wondered what the original owner (back in 1830 or so) would have thought about me using it as a vanity tray!
