My Dog Plate Is Here!

This is reallllllly embarrassing, but I say when ya screw up MAJORLY, you have to own up to it and apologize...so PLEASE accept my sincerest apologies Dakota's Den and Three Sisters Plates for not posting this until now! I really mean that - I am horrible sometimes with "meaning to do, but don't, in a timely manner", I really am sorry!!!  
Back in mid-March, Dakota's Den had a super cool post that you should read if you haven't already (click on Dakota's Den in this paragraph), about a synchronicity event she experienced and told this fascinating story of how she ended up receiving this pawsome gift from her Niece..now,I don't want to ruin the story so go read it and enjoy. Anyway, she then had this great contest and I won!!! It's a really creative, cool plate from Three Sisters Plates!! I have to tell you that both Dakota's Mom and Three Sisters Plates emailed me immediately and Three Sister's asked me for some photo's of Max for the plate. I totally forgot until Three Sisters thankfully and kindly, reminded me as she couldn't do it without the photos! Anyway, so then who knows when it arrived at my postal box but I know it has been there a looong time so I know they do FAST delivery too...the problem was ME...I am kinda (ok, I am being overly kind to myself!), BAD about checking my Postal Box. I have to tell you guys when I unwrapped the layers of bubble wrap (it was VERY well wrapped to avoid damages!!!), I was really shocked! It was WAY beyond what I had envisioned and I almost hate to post the crappy photo I took of it because it sooooo doesn't do it adequate justice!!! This is the PERFECT gift for those people that a hard to buy for! It's really great! You can see Max's little face throughout the plate and it's very well made! There is some depth  to the plate too that unfortunately doesn't show in my poor photography so you'll just have to trust me that it's a great deal!  I WILL be Christmas shopping at Three Sisters Plates for sure!!! And no, not saying that cuz I feel bad about taking FOREVER to post this, I mean it's ya'lls money to buy if you do and I wouldn't want my recommendation to give ya'll a bum steer but this is REALLY cool!! They have all sorts of other really unique stuff there too...I have my eye on a bracelet...anyway go check out her site and see for yourself but trust that even her photos don't do the plates justice (sorry but true :) ). 
Max's Mini-Me likes it too! The background is black and I'm trying (unsuccessfully here), to show you a little of the slight depth in the plate too. Shiny stuff is hard to photograph! BZ Dogs I sure could have used your great photography skills here!!!

This is a close-up view but again, don't go by my bad photo's - this plate is beautiful in real life :) 
Here are some photos that I copied and pasted from Three Sisters Plates Shop to give you some other ideas...



Have a beautiful today and 
remember to apologize when ya screw up :) !
