Since becoming more of a domesticated housewife in the last few years, one of the things I've been looking forward to is taking baked goodies and homemade yummies to our holiday events on really cute plates and platters. If I'm going to spend the time to cook then I want it to look cute when I'm serving it too! This year I am so very excited to bring desserts to the family table on a new plate I recently got from Pottery and Pillows.

The handmade, personalized Christmas wreath plate that is on display in my kitchen was created by Tracy, the wonderfully talented woman behind Pottery and Pillows. Her designs and products are all fantastic. You'll find all kinds of pottery from chip/dip trays, plates and mugs to wall hangings and angels.

I love all the personalized plates and bowls. My kids always eat better when using something that makes them want to hurry up and clear the food to see the design. These plates, bowls and cups would make perfect gifts for any child.

The hanging crosses from Pottery and Pillows come in so many different possible styles and with the option to personalize or customize, they would absolutely make the perfect Christening gift, baby shower gift or first Christmas gift.

The Snow Santa ornament is so very cute. Remember, Tracy would love to create your custom order for more ornaments or anything else you see!

The wreath plate that Tracy made for us is absolutely beautiful. It is festive and because it has our last name on it, I know that it will get passed down to my children and I love thinking of it going through the generations. One of the reasons I love things like this is the sentimental value that will get attached to something because it was made with love, given with love and used with love for ages.

Pottery and Pillows is such a wonderful little shop to find something you love and give it to someone you love.
