Serving Trays Are Addictive For Me!

I was fortunate enough to find this purchase for $2.99 at a Goodwill in Charlotte, NC. It's what appears to be solid Mahogany and hand made. There are no dates or markings on it anywhere. Silver is somehow latticed in the front and rear of the tray very delicately and it is quite solid in it's installation of the tray. The center has a silver circle inset. What I love about this tray is that it's very large and I have room for two cups, creamer & sugar, and a small dessert plate.









Now this, I will "not" dare attempt to "Shabby Chic-it". 8=) Seriously...it's perfect just the way it is. I love to also have a Serving Tray on my guest room beds when my guests arrive for a visit. I always put a special prayer written by a missionary friend, a gift, a flower vase with fresh flowers, and I typically will also include a small book for reading on the tray.

Hi Catherine,
Thanks for stopping by to visit - nice to meet a new Georgia friend! I found you over at Susan's blog. She has your link displayed in her post about the Georgia Friend group. It is located at the bottom of her post in the "update" that she added. You will find a link that will take you to a LARGE list of participants. What fun - I had now idea there were so many bloggers that live so close to me!
Nice to meet you! I look forward to getting to know you better
Blessings,
Kymber
