Pass The Plate

Or better yet, don't pass that plate or saucer you might find that is a single, lonely piece.  One very quick and easy idea is to glue the plate to a plaque, board, window, cupboard door, etc.  Add some hooks and you have a great way to enjoy that piece.  Hooks are so versatile--great for keys, towels, aprons, utensils, leashes, coats, purses, hats, etc.
I  loved the spring yellow and blue in this plate and painted the plaque (from a garage sale) to match:
Here is a one I made last year--loved these saucers!
And here is a dessert stand, nothing new, but again, I adored this plate and the blue candlestick.
Getting those under $100 projects ready to link up Thursday?  I can't wait!
