Pink Saturday! Syracuse China

Happy Pink Saturday!
This is about the best Christmas gift I have ever received!
DH was with me when I saw it in a little dark antique shop
on a shopping trip 40 miles away early in December.  I
thought this was the most beautiful dish I had ever seen.

I didn't buy it because I was being practical that day.  DH,
after 38 years of marriage, knew I would never forget it.
So, one day before Christmas, he drove back to that shop
(80 miles round trip) to buy me this beautiful $3.00 dish!

What a sweetie!

  2. What a great buy for $3 but more important is that you have someone that loves you that much to make the effort to make you so happy. You are very fortunate!

  3. Ahhhhh! How romantic ... may I borrow him? The plate is gorgeous! I'd have gone back for it, too. Enjoy!

    Have a beautiful PS weekend.
