simple is beautiful

She's Growing

Thursday, January 7, 2010


The holiday decor is gone, but the plate wall continues to grow.  My apologies if looking at one more picture of this wall makes you want to barf.  I feel like it needs some platters sort of in the middle, but the thrift stores aren't co-operating.  Mom and I found one last weekend, but it had several brown stains that would probably stare me down over dinner.  For now, this is how it looks.  By the way, Finding Fabulous featured this wall yesterday.  She is getting ready to do a plate wall in her dining room.   
The evolution continues....

The paperwhites are still going strong and won't be around forever so now is the time to plant spring wheat grass, something I always do to remind myself that yes in fact grass is green, now that the grey has set in.  Go to your local feed and seed store and purchase some.  At this price, we can probably all afford it.

    4. I think it looks beautiful. Love it.

      I'd like to include it in a post I'm doing at www.TheDesignFile.net about rooms that are inspiring me for 2010. Would that be OK with you?

    5. I like how you've arranged the plates but I agree with you about one big platter in the middle. What about a black plate or something? Bring the same colour of your buffet up more? I dunno....

    10. What was used to hang these plates? Were they these adhesive plate hangers seen at http://www.allplatehangers.com, or were they wire plate hangers.

    11. To hang the smallest plates, I hot glued ribbon to the back. All the other plates are hung by wire hangers.

    13. That's so funny, I just flipped through a magazine today and earmarked a page because I liked the wheat grass. Yes, I'm a magazine hoarder too. Thanks for sharing this. Have a great weekend! ~Lisa
