How SWEET It IS!!!!

Does this look familiar? Well, I am sure it does as it is the design from my blog. My son's girlfriend, sweet Miss Krystal, made this for me!
Sweet Miss K. flew out for a visit in March (she is from the East Coast) and even carried this sweet platter in her carry-on luggage. Ohhhh....I am so happy it arrived safe and sound!
She hand painted each perfect detail onto the platter and had it fired in a kiln.
It must have taken her hours and hours to do this.
Krystal, my sweet girl, thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a lovely and personal gift. I will cherish it forever and ever. You are so SWEET!!!!!!

It is no wonder that Spen loves you so much!

So do I!!!!!



((hugs)) and XXXXXX
