My New Brown Transferware Cake Plate

Last weekend we visited Normandy to see the American Cemetery, Omaha Beach, Juno Beach, Sainte Mere Eglise and Carentan.  It was a great trip for all of the historical things we wanted to do and see.  I also got to visit 2 vide grenier, 2 brocante warehouses, and a thrift store.  I posted several photos on Instagram of my shopping adventures.  I had some amazing finds and here is just one that I would like to share.  This beautiful little cake stand was tucked away at a table at a vide grenier.  A vide grenier is like a french garage sale.  The town we went to had at least 100 families each with their own table set up.  There were a lot of baby clothes and gear, kitchen gear, and tools.  Hidden amongst the other stuff were treasures just waiting to be found.  I had stopped at this table to look at a silver tea pot.  After asking the price and deciding to pass on the tea pot I spotted this plate.

I love brown transfer ware, and this one was a no brainer for me.

I love the pattern, the color and this plate is in perfect condition.  I feel like I won the lottery.
