Break Bread with Friends

I spotted something similar to this bread plate at my friend's home
 and commented on how much I liked it.
Thus, my sweet friend began a search to find one for me. 
When she was unsuccessful in finding one, she made one!
Such a kind and thoughtful gesture.
It means so much.
It has been placed on top of our refrigerator.
Yes, I had to clean the top of it before I could take the photos. 
Oh my goodness, what goes on on the top of the fridge? 
It's a good thing we are not tall.
 She really captured my style and my colors. 
She even included a heart in the middle and the "i's" are dotted with hearts.
 I like the way it looks with the heart crochet project from this post,
and this post, too.

Thank you my sweet friend and
Happy Spring to you as well!

  1. It's beautiful Astri what a lovely thoughtful gift, I would treasure it forever, it looks good with all your colourful projects. I know what you mean about the top of the fridge, I have trays on the top of mine. Have you seen this Astri http://springcleaning365.com/about/
    The thought of it made me feel quite faint haha

  6. Au début j'ai cru que c'était une carte, mais non, c'est un plateau. Drôlement bien réalisé, bravo à celle qui l'a fait !! Et comme tu le dis bien réfléchis avec la couleur de bleu que tu aimes particulièrement. C'est un jolie cadeau.
    Bonne soirée :)

  7. (bien réfléchi et c'est un joli ...) Hmmm, les fautes d'orthographe sont de sortie !!!

    Sinon, juste pour donner mon avis : c'est très bien le dessus du frigo est désormais bien propre et la présentation bien agréable.

    Mais .....

    Comment faites vous maintenant pour accéder aux portes du placard derrière ????

    1. Haha - the cabinet holds spice refills so I do not need to access it often. :-)

  8. It's lovely and such a bright cheerful blue. How nice to have a tray custom-made for you!

    The top of the fridge ... sigh. I think there's a little grease-and-dirt factory on top of mine that sprays out an everlasting stream of gunk.
