Gratitude...Shooner Redware

If you follow this blog, you know that I am a big fan of Shooner Redware. I have a nice little collection that I have gathered from here and there, and it still makes my pulse race when I dust and rearrange my pieces. I simply love the look of is so authentic. 
My latest issue of Early American Life arrived last month and the page shown above advertised a limited offer of this wonderful Shooner platter.
The lone word Gratitude caught my eye and I was on the phone to order in a flash.

Today it arrived and I wanted to share this beauty with you. It is large...measuring fifteen inches across.

It is a limited edition of twenty...mine is #14.

It came straight from Greg and Mary's studio, complete with a certificate of authenticity with Greg's signature and a little bird drawing.

I love this beautiful redware...but I ordered this piece for the single word that appears on it. 

Gratitude is such a splendid gift...I love that it appears on this splendid plate. 
What a beautiful combination!

Enjoy the day,
