A customer ordered this platter to give to her parents for Christmas. It is their former home. The present owners have changed the yard and house displeasing them. Now her family will have a permanent image of their home as they remember it, always spring with their garden in bloom.
I have a Ruth Cox painting of my childhood home, it was a gift from my mother one Christmas and it does the EXACT same thing for me. I can let the real house go, because I have this beautiful reminder, and the memories that go with it.
