The Mystery Platter "

In my last post I told you about ordering a 15' Oval Platter to match my China and receiving a round one that did not match. I sent an e-mail to the seller through EBay and gave her 72 hours to respond. She did not. After I did my blog post , I sent another e-mail directly to her which she responded to immediately. She wanted a picture of the platter I received so I sent her one. She then claimed that the platter I received, was never in her inventory and was not sent from her!
So now I'm thinking I have brain fog and have ordered this platter from someone else. I check my EBay orders and NO, she was the only platter I bid on! I also told her I remembered seeing P& G on the return label. Hubby in cleaning up had burned the box by mistake! She in the beginning claimed an assistant had mailed it on the 11th . So we argued back and forth through e-mails for awhile. Then I said; FORGET IT, I'll put it in the display shelf. I went on EBay and put a bid on another platter like the one I should have gotten. So yesterday here comes a Priority Mail package containing the correct platter! Mailed on the 11th ! It too had a P&G Antiques label on it! I e-mailed her explaining that I'm really confused now!! So it is a mystery where the first platter came from ,with a P&G label, that contained a platter that was NEVER in P&G inventory! What is your theory? I have mine! The right platter is in the China Cabinet!






Looks good too!


Here's the shelves that Hubby built...........

On the bottom shelf, third to the right sits the " Mystery Platter! HA!



I'm going to bore you with more work pictures from my dining room!


We hung this picture yesterday...............





Added this piece that belonged to my Mother as well as the lamp I bought years ago in a Antique store in Hot Springs, Arkansas..................





I added this figurine and put some roses and greenery in it...............






Today we are taking the day off and heading to the French Quarter in the Big Easy !!







November 10 th my Great-Gran Amy turned ONE Year Old! Yes Sir , That's My Baby !!!!









HAVE A GREAT DAY YOU ALL.............................. :)

That certainly is a mystery platter. At least you received the correct one this time. I love going to the french quarter. Enjoy some good creole cooking and beignets. What a precious baby. Happy birthday.

What an interesting mystery! I sure love eating a holiday meal in your beautiful dining room, although I think I'd be too distracted by all your great things to eat.

Darling baby!

Hope you solve the Mystery of the Round Platter. Do you sell on ebay? (If so, email me your info, wontcha?)

Have a great time in the Big Easy! Wish I could take an hour drive and meet you at Cafe' du Monde.

Your dining room is looking very elegant. I have some pretty rose-patterned china which belonged to my grandmother. I have to be very careful about displays as we have Siamese cats and no high shelf or ledge is beyond their leap!

A wonderful sojourn in New Orleans, I am looking forward to read about it! :-)

Don't you love mysteries? They keep you going round and round! But I love your platter. Your dining room looks very nice Carol - I can tell you're happy with it!
Have fun in the French Quarter!

Nezzy said...

Happy, happy birthday precious Amy. She is an absolute sweetheart!

Have a great trip, we're expecting some great pics!

Your dining room is fab. The platter???? Let us know if you solve the platter mystery.

Have a great day, are you hosting Thanksgiving in your new dining room this year?

Elizabeth Bradley said...

Aw, dang, wish I was going to New Orleans!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hmmmmmmmm Carol... Sounds like 'they' made a mistake and sent you the wrong platter first... BUT--since people don't seem to be honest these days, they never would admit their mistake. However, they went ahead and sent you the correct one. At least, they did THAT. That was the only thing they should have done---after that mistake. Glad it all worked out but it's too bad you had to hastle about it....

Have fun in Nawlins.... Congrats to Amy --who is now Age 1...

Hugs,
Betsy

Love the white against the dusty rose. The plate racks that hubby built look great! Your dining room is really looking good, cher! And that precious little grand baby is so adorable. Hope you had a bon ton in N'awlins!

Arkansas Patti said...

Such a mystery and one reason I dread eBay. Glad it turned out OK.
Belated Happy Birthday Amy. With that smile, you could turn the world upside down.

NCmountainwoman said...

I agree with Betsy. I think they sent the wrong platter and knew they sent the wrong one. They sent the correct one to keep you from putting negative comments about their services on eBay.

Have a great time in New Orleans...one of my favorite cities.

Jen Chandler said...

Mystery platter!!! I'm sorry you had to go through such a mess but it's really funny that it's sitting on your shelf now. At least you have a story to tell :)

Have fun in New Orleans! I would love to visit there sometime and eat...listen to blues...eat some more.

Enjoy yourself!
Jen

PS: Adorable baby :) Love the happy face!
