I went to TJMaxx the day before yesterday and found some dishes (yeah me! :-)) LOL I was/am excited because for those of you that read my blog last year (before I deleted everything) you will remember that I was inspired by one of my favorite blogs - Cherry Hill Cottage to turn dishes and cups and glass cheese tops into treasures.
I made one for my dear friend Patti:
One for my Mom:
And one for me:
Mine ended up getting broken a few days later by the boston terrier - Olive that stayed with us for 3 months. I didn't even get mad at her because dogs will be dogs and things happen. I was sad however because the plate I used was a retired Mary Engelbreit plate that is very, very, very hard to replace. Once I saw one on ebay months back and I tried buying it but when it went over $30, I backed off and let the other bidder have it. I do have my limits. :-O
So my cup and my glass lid have sat gathering dust for many months now. Until yesterday! I found my replacement plate for $2.99 plus 2 more dishes to play with. Now Ted (my partner in crime and my glue man) says we should find a square glass lid. What do you think?
(This is the one that Ted thinks needs a square lid, I kind of like it just plain. It will look darling with some goodies on it during the holidays. And I just adore polka dots! :-))
