taking the good with the bad.

The good thing... So the other day I stopped by Marshall's after dropping my oldest off at pre K, and look what I found! Ralph Lauren plates on clearance! I saw them a couple months ago but didn't want to pay the price on them... they only had 4 so I'll be on the look out for more at other Marshall's in the area.
The bad thing... I took the stickers off of them and put them into the dishwasher to wash... they are too tall! The spinning thing on the bottom of the top rack won't spin because these guys are in the way! They are huge... and really deep which my hubby likes... he would eat every meal out of a bowl if he could! I guess I will be handwashing dishes now!

Marshall's also had another plate from the collection but it was a bit bigger and wasn't as deep, so I bought it as well and decided to make a sweet stand out of it...

If you want one of your own unique and vintage inspired sweet stands you can find some here.

Have a wonderful weekend, and happy game day... GO GATORS!!!

Hi there, Megan!! I am LOVING these's a bummer they won't fit in the dishwasher. But they'll be worth it to use and handwash :D They're just darling!! I wanted to thank you for your sweet words and wish you all the luck at your upcoming show!! Off the top of my head my tips would be for sure use a tent if it's outdoors. I didn't and seemed to be one of the only ones, ha! I also would just keep your head high and have a great time!! You'll have so much fun chatting with people oohing and awwwing over your creations! Be sure to take lots of cards with your email or phone number if you don't have an actual shop..I handed out that's good for exposure! I think you'll do just great! :D Big hugs to you, sweets! Keep me posted too!!
Your friend,
