The Patisserie Stand

One of my favorite things in my home is the Patisserie stand on my kitchen island. I love re-doing it for every season.  It gives me the chance to rotate some of my treasures and enjoy them  for a little while.  This week, I took the time to polish the silver and clean the crystal and set the stand up for the holidays. 
I get to re-live some memories as I place the objects on the stand.
The excitement of finding a complete set of crown embellished dinnerware.

Finding this "Friendship" glass at the Paris flea market.

Spotting this silver wine chalice in Cashiers, NC with my friend Jill.

Finding these crown embellished spoons on Victoria Island, Canada.

The vase was a gift from my friend, Marlene, in Tennessee.

The black swan salt cellar, a gift from Mariterese
and the pretty crystal glass, a gift from the Romancing the Home girls.

 These pretty mint julep spoons from the "Antiques in the Field" show here at home.

Old Paris Porcelain from my favorite haunt in Wisconsin.

a find on Ebay

This past weekend with Laurell at an antiques show.
To add a few finishing touches, a bit of Christmas sparkle. Just a bit for now- more after Thanksgiving!

It just makes me smile remembering all these times!

That is the most amazing Pastry display ever! I LOVE it! I have a secret desire to open a small Pastry Cafe and if I did, it would have beautiful displays as yours.

Hello Susan,
I have just discovered your blog and can not stop coming back to it!!! Can you please tell me where you found your Patisserie stand. I have told my husband I would love one for Christmas and even I am having a tough time finding a good source.
