Wanted to Show 'er What I Bought....

Okay...so there was just no way to tie the "shower" theme into this one....I do the best I can.

On Wednesday I went to work, drove around for a half hour looking for parking (yes, it is that bad at Boeing right now!) and then determined that I should just go home and work from there. Well...on the way home (to work), I stopped in at Value Villiage to browse.
I don't get to do this very often, but I really love treasure hunting.

I bought the serving dish below because it called out to me - you really don't need a better reason than that sometimes. I thought it would be a fabulous dish to serve a seafood appetizer on and it is really unique. The smaller dish has a metal holder that allows it to sit at a slight angle. The bottom of the platter is stamped Calif. USA AM-10 and the small dish says AM-11. Not sure which California Pottery company that would be from...do you?

Simon is not crazy about it, but he said he would reserve his final opinion until after he sees what I serve on it (that was a hint...that he wants seafood appetizers)

What do you think?

Well I have seen prettier Pieces but I can see fresh crab & shrimp on that it for sure ...with dipping sauce in the smaller one..
I will expect to taste those when i come up there and I am sure the Pottery will make anything taste good.
