decorative wood serving platters.
i always head to the bakeware section of the thrift store to see if i can find a treasure or two.
but lately i find myself drawn to the kitchen section that has "all things 1970's wooden" --salad bowls, serving utensils, platters.
these pieces remind me of my parent's in their younger years, wood panelling and basement rec rooms. not normally where my vintage affections are directed.
when i saw this oval shaped serving platter i had to do a quick self-check. really? are you sure? i was definitely second guessing my attraction.
when i see too many of these wood pieces grouped together i go "agghh". but when paired with a mirrored surface, some fresh flowers, an inlaid shell picture frame--all of those textures together make me very happy. and those swervy sections? well, the collector in me gets instant butterflies.
when i had a "guess the price i paid" game among friends recently they were only over by $39.50.
