On rainy days like today it's nice to stay in, if only possible, and think homy thoughts. For me that means doing something cozy like watch telly, prepare food, maybe bake a little, or handcrafts! Rarely there's enough time to really start a new project but every now and then it happens! I thought I'd introduce you to my plate project! I always keep my eyes on pretty old things, including plates, when I wander through fleamarkets! As a person I'm a hopeless nostalgia-lover, this might be a symptom of that! I love old Arabia tableware. They're perfectly designed and coloured, and they even match some of the newer stuff that comes to market. So I started collecting plates, really small ones, a little bigger ones, and something in between, and thought they looked so cute not only separately but together as well. I got the idea of putting them together from a magazine, once again, and the next thing was to get a bunch of eggcups and some superglue and look what happened!
I've given these as presents, and kept a few myself, they are really unique and lovely I think! There's something humorous about them, some are sophisticated and elegant even, so many thoughts come to mind when looking at them! And the way to use them is so versatile: petit fours, all other kinds of goodies, jewellery, earrings and such, even keys or whatever small things that easily gets lost! But oh boy did our dining room look like a little sweatshop when all this was going on! Luckily my sweet husband understands my very keen take on things when something like this happens!!
