On this past Sunday during her barn sale, I leafed through the pages, looked at the article on antique and vintage turkey platters and with such confidence I told her "Oh I have this one and I have this one". Later that day I actually read how much these platters were going for...over $400.
By now I'm so excited I wanted to go home and dig out my platters from their safe hiding spots. I'm thinking about how I have such good taste and I really know my stuff. By the time I pack up after the sale and go home and put things away and clean up the house, I have to tell my husband about this article and how I have such good taste and I really know my stuff. Hubby is not one to take that at face value so as he is holding the magazine he says "SHOW ME".
I dig through one dresser and amongst piles of linens I pull out platter #1 - no match. I dig through dresser #2 and again - no match.
He even turns the platters over to check to see if it is marked - I've created a monster. I then have to pull up a chair to stand on to get the other 4 platters that are on top of the cabinet over the stove - remember I have the smallest kitchen in the world
- again no matches.
So it turns out that I don't have platters that are worth much more than the few dollars that I paid for them, but I still think I know some stuff. Wait until I show you my vintage turkey salt & pepper shakers and turkey planter. I'll leave those until later.
You know...I just might write to Country Living to tell them all about it.
