    LOVE that pie server – so unusual and yet so classic.
    I got “Celebrate”, the British version from I really like it. I think it only cost me $5 more, even with shipping.

      We had no idea there was a UK version of Amazon with different products, but it makes perfect sense. Must check that out, pronto!
