Fitz and Floyd Soup Tureen

I have had this fabulous Fitz and Floyd Soup Tureen for several years.  I think it is such a stunning piece.  Now don't ask me why, but it has spent most of it's time on top of the fridge.  It's pretty there, but you really can't see all the detail, so it came down to play.

It has different unbelievable detail with fruit and flowers on both sides.  

 See how pretty this side is too.

When I've used it before, I always used it in the dinig room, but I think it is perfect here in the breakfast room.

 Since I am using one of the plaid pillows in the familyroom, the plaid runner carries the colors over to the table.

I am so happy to see it up close, why didn't I do this sooner?

Do you have things that you think only belong in one place and then find that they look wonderful in other places?  (did you follow all of that?)

Don't forget you can still link up to Inspire Me Tuesday, and be sure to check back for my Saturday post, I have an amazing Frenchy/Farmhouse giveaway.

  27. Marty,
    Your tureen is gorgeous, dear friend!!!
    The delicate tulip handle and strawberries make a perfect Spring centerpiece!
    I have pots atop the hutch in the dining room, which I've brought down a time or two. . .
    but I miss how they fill the space, so I always put them back...and smile!!!
    Have a marvelous weekend!!!
