The other day I needed the plate stand behind my oval platter so I put the platter down on the dining room table. Then I realized, "OMG! The oval platter fits perfectly on my tablecloth!" And then I spied my fish soup tureen sitting on top of the buffet and I got chills down my spine. It dawned on me that my chubby fish friend with his beautiful ceramic curves would fit perfectly on the oval platter! I just love it when you are not even trying and things fall in to place.
