Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day . . . again . . . from Petals!
Petals first wished some lucky mom happy mother's day in 1957 (according to the inscription on the back of this cutting board).

I am so glad that I was able to rescue her from the thrift store and give her a new beginning just in time for mother's day 2011!




I just finished placing the last mosaic piece. Hopefully I will be able to add the grout soon and Petals will be complete! (My daughter named her Petals since it starts with a P and the plate pieces are floral.)

I have been planning Petals for a while and had the lavender and green plates since last year, my mom just found the berry colored one at a yard sale last weekend so I couldn't wait to get started!


She is handmade and about 14" by 9". The lavender and berry colors are both reproduction Spode; the green was unmarked and vintage.

Great job, Petals will look fabulous, nice tight grout lines, love to see her grouted. Don't forget to seal it....

So cute! She looks lovely.

I actually have a cutting board just like petals - minus the tiles. That my dad made for my grandma! Although my grandma actually used it, I have it hanging in my kitchen.

Happy Mother's Day!
