One of the things that I've been wanting to do and finally got it done in 2013 was to get a backsplash in our kitchen. I hunted for the best deal around and found something I liked at a great price at Menards. It only cost $24 for the tile! It was a small space but still... I thought it was a good deal!
And I DO love my ironstone platter as a catch-all. It makes things look less messy on the counter, in my humble opinion. I have another one just like this that will be for sale at our next event...along with a few more ironstone pieces! Oh, wait I might keep the gravy boat for myself! ; )
If you live in the North...stay warm!!!
