Past Due Tuesday ~ Oval Ceramic Platters

Welcome to Past Due Tuesday, where all things "vintage" get their due by sharing them with others!
Thanks to you that joined us last time, especially the new bloggers from 4 Bushel Farm and J Nichelle Holiday! ! If you are new and would like to participate in “PDT”, please follow the instructions below. We would love to have you join us!
If we are figuring correctly, the average size family consists of 3 -14 people. That can be quite a lot of turkey on Thanksgiving! Anyway you slice it, you're going to need someplace to delicately put your juicy butterball. Hence, we present THE PLATTER! Oval or oblong in shape to hold that delicious bird, they come in different sizes with handpainted or decal designs and textures.

All of these platters are vintage, and although only one was marked "made in USA", we suspect some

came from England and Japan.

No shelf space to store them when you aren't serving your relatives during the holidays? No problem! Some people amass plates and platters and display them on the wall. Check out the wall from the Viceroy in Santa Monica--it's a work of art!

Or follow Martha's lead. You only need 3 of a kind to call it a "collection"!
Now it's your turn! Please share your passion for vintage items by following these simple guidelines:
1) Post a picture of something vintage that you love, on your blog and tell us all about it! What’s the story behind it? Do you have an entire collection of them? Where’d you get it? Who did it belong to? What do you use it for, etc?
2) Add a link to your blog (in the MckLinky area at the bottom of this post).
3) Feel free to add the "Past Due Tuesday" button to your post or your blog’s sidebar.
(To add the button & image to your sidebar, follow these steps:
A. Save the image on this post to your computer.
B. Go to your add page layout page and click on the sidebar Add Gadget.
C. Scroll down to where you see add picture, click on that. Now select the image from your computer to download.
D. Now add the ROOMIES blog link in the link window and click save.)(Please be sure to have your post up before linking in.)
4) Test your links and make sure they’re working! If your link gets deleted, it's because you missed one of the guidelines, so just reread them and repost again!
5) Visit and comment on as many of the other bloggers who are participating in “giving vintage it’s due” as you can, and have fun reading & learning about vintage items every Tuesday!

  1. That's a lot of nice platters. They are beautiful and useful serving plates for any dinner but especially the "big bird" day coming up.

    Love the wall art idea for plates. Gotta try that.
