Sweet Inspiration! ~ L@@K What you can do with a 6" Plate!

Hi Sweet Bloggers!

Wow, Monday...
A fresh new start to a brand new week!
We here in Michigan are living in lotsa White
right now..the sun came out this moring and
my oh my, is it BRIGHT!

Last week I shared a Tea Cup Idea and I
thought I'd share a few more ideas that
I have done recently with castoff plates?
You game?

So to start off I have another sweet Candle Holder.
Now I know this is
NOT a new idea, but I have added my own twist to it.
My Twist, well I have added my hand made clay roses
on the edging of the plate for a special touch!
I do have some larger sized plates that I have done
this with in listed in my etsy shop.
I just loved how this turned out and it sure
pretties up a simple plate, huh?

Next, I had had this small round mirror in my stash.  When
recently I came across this darling plate in my
thrifting adventures and KNEW they
were a match made in HEAVEN!
Again I added my roses to give it my special touch.

Still with me? Okay, one more idea.
This one just HIT me.  I had this rose hook in my
butlers pass through but when I redid that area last year it
went to my stash...well last week I saw this pretty
plate again in my stash and guessed it...
the rest is here for you to see!

Wouldn't this look pretty as a holder for your jewelry.
Or I even though a pretty tassel or ornie you might have
dangling from it? So many fun ideas I can see for this.

As you can see I have been having loads of fun coming
up with ways to repurpose castoff plates.  I'd so LOVE
to hear about your ideas too.
These were all just listed last night in my eBay.
You are invited to check them out if you wish!

I hope these will inspire you to create! Don't be afraid to
think *outside* the box.  You'll be amazed when you do
what you can come up with.
