My Mama's plates

My Mother and I are a lot a like. Change is a welcomed guest in our homes.  I tend to paint and move furniture. She often has new dishes, couches and comforter sets.  She past these dishes onto me awhile ago and I had completely forgotten about them. 
 Joe found them on his cleaning/organizing frenzy in the garage.  My kids were having a blast unwrapping them. They acted really excited even though each plate they unwrapped looked just like the one they had opened just a moment before.  I love how they find so much joy in the teensy tiny things in life. I really have enough plates at the moment so I thought I would use some of my chalkboard paint on a couple of them. 
 It just took a few minutes to spray them and I drew on them after the kidlets were all snug in their beds. 
 Which reminds me, I should really be snug in my bed right now as well. Have a wonderful Sunday! 

P.S. The larger plate really says "Fresh pie". I know it looks like "Fresh pic" in the picture, but I was too lazy to go and take another shot. 

P.P.S.  Don't you just love those cute little polka dotty bowls I found at Ross?


  1. That's a fun idea...I've never thought about doing chalkboard paint on plates! Cool...I'll have to try it!

  2. These turned out so nice. I really like your blog.
