I don't think I ever showed you the cake plate we purchased
when we were in the States picking up Blarney in January.
We stopped into this wee antique shop in Pennsylvania - at least it looked
wee from the outside, but when we entered, it was 3 stories of
awesomeness!  And the prices...well...don't go there!  It was another
disneyland of antiques adventure for us.

This cake plate is made of cast iron on the base and had a steel (I'm going to say
stainless steel, but not sure) disc that spins for cake decorating I'd assume.
I spraypainted to top of the disc an antique white to match the base and
on that same jaunt to the U.S., I had picked up a large cloche in
Hobby Lobby for 1/2 price!
Now, I've put together a wee spring-like vignette for display
under the cloche....something to make you think of spring in all it's glory!
The nest is authentic and the eggs are marble.  It's funny, but when I first lived with Dan,
I had an egg that I'd had since childhood which I'd dragged with me all over the place, and then Dan was unpacking some boxes and he had a marble egg as well!
Guess we were meant for each other!
Happy Spring!

Awww, Wendy, I love the story of the eggs. The vignette is lovely...I love all of the varying shades of white and how they work together. And a cloche just makes everything look good. The cake stand is the perfect stage for your Spring display. Thanks for sharing at Show & Tell.

The plants and the garden in general seem to be echoing the general mood; beautifully bejeweled with tiny droplets, gleaming in the crystal clear post rainfall Sun.
