Show & Tell Friday ~ Mother Child Plate

Before I was even expecting our first child, I fell in love with this beautiful porcelain plate depicting a mother reading to her child. It is the prettiest shade of green with a Wedgewood style cameo, a border of flowers, birds and a dainty butterfly.

Imagine my delight when my thoughtful BIL ordered this as a gift for me!
A Mother's Love 1977 Mother's Day Plate by Adelaid Sundin for Franklin Porcelain

For you created my inmost being
you knit me together in my mother's womb

It's beautiful. I must say I'm impressed that your BIL was the one that purchased it for you. That is also one of my favorite Bible verses you shared.

Oh this is wonderful and to think that your BIL thought of you is soo very special.

Your background reminds me of our dining room wallpaper (minus the glitter).
