An early Birthday present!

My birthday isn't until August 23rd, but I decided to order a present for myself early.
I didn't think it would take only 3 days to get here.
I got this huge box.


Inside of it was another box. 


eeeeek!


I have had my eye on this baby for some time.




It is HUGE, I love it!!!
I've still got to play with accesorizing it LOL but I was so excited to take a picture and show yall!!
I was jumping up and down squealing.
Good thing my husband left before I opened it, he would have thought I lost it.
I wanted the butter one instead of cheese, cause I love baking and butter LOL

You can find the cheese/butter slabs here:

Hope yall have a great day!!!!

I'll be attending Sherry's party:

We haven't had butter or margarine of any kind in the house sooo long (hubby heart) It's all olive oil here!

Fun!! It looks like it was made for the big chunks of butter, not little sticks like we have in the grocery store. Butter makes everything taste better. (And yes, I do love Paula.)

Happy birthday a little early! I would really like one of those, too. My birthday is August 24! I have my grandmother's wooden butter mold. Wouldn't it look great on top of that slab?

Sarah said...

Michelle, an early happy birthday to you. What a great piece. I've admired these myself and would love to add one our kitchen. I think I may surprise my husband (aka, the chef) with one of these for his August birthday.
Thanks for visiting HFTS. I'm thrilled to find your blog and have signed on to follow along. Always glad to find a fellow MacKenzie-Childs fan. Look forward to seeing your new pieces.

What a great gift to yourself, Michele! I love butter, too, so I would probably have gone with that one also! I think it looks great as a base to holding your necessities close by the stove.

Oh Michelle, it's so pretty. I love it and I get why you were so excited about getting this awesome display stand. I guess you could actually use it for butter too, but I love the way you used it.
