My take on decorating with plates…

Lately I’ve found so many lovely English ironstone pieces when I’ve been out thrifting, and all of them have been incredibly inexpensive.  YaY!

Recently,  I had a creative idea using some of my thrift store find ironstone saucers.  When these creative ideas randomly come to me  I just have to make. it. happen. right. now. (Anyone else like out there like that?)  Thankfully, I had every thing I needed already…some ironstone saucers, a large empty frame, some burlap, and a glue gun.

I simply removed the picture, mat, and glass from the frame and attached burlap to the cardboard backing using the hot glue gun.  I then decided how I wanted the saucers to be arranged and hot glued them onto the burlap.  It was that easy, but I absolutely love how it turned out.

  1. Beautiful blog...so fresh and unique! Lovely post.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  2. Really liking this idea....such a fresh looking vignette:-) Thanks for sharing with us.


  3. COMPLETELY nuts about it, and oh how I wish I were like you. I'm the exact opposite in that the idea just sits incomplete in my head until I talk myself out of it.

    I'm sincerely trying to be more like you.

  4. I love how such a simple design has such a great impact. Great idea!

  5. What a lovely idea, thanks for sharing! Beautiful blog!

  6. Your vignette is so lovely Elizabeth and the frame you created is so perfectly simple and elegant. I'm an ironstone fan myself.


  7. I loved your creativity with the plates. It is a lovely idea. I was left with all of my mother's collections of tea cups and this stimulated some ideas.
