...And the Dish Ran Away With the Spoon.

...the cow jumped ooooover the I was trying to think of a fun title for my thoughts on decorating with plates and this favorite nursery rhyme popped into my ol' noggin. Don't know just did. Having said that, do you want to add great detail to your decor....hang a plate or in my case...hang a dozen. You can find plate hangers at the dollar store for...well....a dollar! Then come home and go to your cupboard and choose a plate or two or twelve and hang ' em.

Even your everyday dishes will look great hung around your home. I also love to display them on little easels. Craft stores sell those in all sizes. TJ Maxx, Marshall's and The Home Store are great sources for picking up a cute plate or two. Also....check the sale table at larger department can buy one plate from an incomplete set....bring that home and hang it up and ENJOY!

Now I have talked about the unexpected this should come as no surprise to you...I love to hang plates in the bathroom, a group of three on the outside of the house along the deck...I have even taken broken plates and stuck them halfway down in a planter...just cuz. Instant Unexpectedness Realized!

Get used to it folks ~ plates are not just for eating ~ Anymore! Cha~cha~cha!

Have a wonderful rest of the is actually going to snow here in Beaverton, Oregon this weekend in April......gotta love it...good thing that I love socks....they keep my toes warm while I go around hanging plates all over town. Smile.
