That one odd plate....

Did you ever have an odd plate that you just can't get rid of? 

A plate that you have moved from one cupboard to another?

One that is so pretty, but you have no use for?

A plate that you have no idea where it came from?

This is mine:

Maybe it's the delicate trim around the center of the plate...
...or the soft colors...
...or the gold trim...
...but whatever it is, I can't seem to trash it!

I came across an odd little stemmed glass and decided to adhere it to the plate to see if I could find some use for it:

Now I have a little stemmed dessert plate - that I still have no use for!

But it's pretty, isn't it?

  1. It is very pretty, Patty! I think this is a good solution for that one lonely plate. : )

  2. Yes! We have such a plate and for what ever reason, I just can't part with it. LOL! Clever use for yours!


  3. It is pretty. ;-)
    You know I can't go thrifting now without picking things up and thinking, "what could Patti do with this piece to make it useful again?"
    You are always thinking of clever ideas. This is darling!

  4. Great idea, Patti! It looks really pretty all together....Christine

  5. We all seem to have a soft soft por those pieces. I do. Even with my don't-want-what-I-don't-use policy there are some pieces that I have difficulty in getting rid of... thank you for the inspiration!
    Turned out lovely!
