Friday Favorites

Love love love me some plates!!! I think you should have them in every room of the house. I think I do. Oh, I don't have any in my husband's office so maybe I should sneak a few in there to "pretty it up"! 'Cause let me tell you, it ain't pretty - sorry honey! Hope y'all have a fun and safe Halloween and a great weekend!

Ooohhh...I love your plates each one of them....all of them. I'm a dishaholic and can't pass up a pretty plate even if I tried.
Problem is I'm running out of space where to put them all. Any ideas? LOL
Have a great weekend,
Tam

I love the plates! I hung some once in my kitchen-and my friend brushed against it and broke it...no more hanging now...but I might give it another try after seeing your-beautiful. I love the red and white ones.(Now, I do hang tins everywhere-even in a bathroom...)

I feel so at home in your home. Plates are right up my alley. I especially like the red and white one. Thanks for coming by my blog the other day. I can't wait to see more of your talents, it looks like you have a lot of them. Take care.

I have a lot of plates...but not too many on the walls...I really need up my game. It looks so pretty.

I am so laughing at your thoughts about the office. My husband says his is off limits to me. But it is so not pretty!!!

Plates are fabulous! I love what you have done with yours. Putting those stickers on the white ones is genius! Do you buy those at Hobby Lobby? I guess I should just try it some day.

Thank you for your kindness and your thoughts and prayers. I think that women that have been through similar situations are so undertanding of one another and what stress/happiness you feel during your pregnancy. Every day is a miracle, and every day comes with it's own concerns. So I am trying to make it one day at a time! What a blessing your sweet boy must be to you!

What is it about plates that is so appealing?? Maybe it's an inherited trait. My mom has it too!
Oh well, as genetic traits go, it could be worse.

Christy said...

Plates are one of the best and least expensive ways to add something decorative and fun. I love them too!

Okay, I have to ask... did you add the decals on the plates? If so, how did you do it? Love those!

Thanks for visiting me!

Christy said...

Thanks for letting me know about the stickers. I know what I am going to be doing as my next project!

I really enjoy coming to your blog and seeing all of your creative decorating ideas. I'm adding you to my blog list.

Darlene said...

I LOVE all of your plates they are just gorgeous!!! Also, your laundry room make-over is FABULOUS!!

Tausha said...

I am a plate lover as well. We use them all the time when we decorate our clients houses. They are great cause they are cheap, and add the little punch of color you are looking for~ I am loving your rooster plate! I love roosters. I really try not too, I really do, but I just can't stop! Whenever I see a super cure little chickie-I must get her. My hubby is now to the point where he doesn't even notice anymore. It's kind of the same concept as my closet! :)
THanks so much for the sweet words and kindness! I feel very blessed!!

Tausha said...

ps-have you ever used the plate hangers that they have at hobby lobby? They are little discs that stick on the back of plate. They are great cause you can't see any wire, plus they lay flat. Just wondering. Us girls must share our secrets!!

I am a plate fanatic as well! So funny it never crosses my mind what they were originally intended for - I just automatically see them as wall art! Our home office is sort of done in a masculine theme but I snuck in some of those Johnson Brothers - Happy Village plates - have some rustic scenes on them so I figured the hubby wouldn't mind them too much! Maybe you could try that in your husbands? You have a plate of a rooster that I have the same picture on a tray next to my husband's side of the bed. His water glass was always leaving white marks on the darn table. He didn't care for the rooster part too much and blocked his face with the alarm clock but at least I don't yell about the furniture anymore! :) And yes I've got plates in the bedroom too! They are art and I will continue to buy them as I am sure you will too. Take care. ~ Laurie
