I love that quote and I love the simplicity of the display!!
I’m very pleased with the plates I found:
The embossed white plate in the bottom right-hand corner was $1.00 at Marshall’s in their clearance section. I bought all three plates that they had left, but decided to only hang one in this display. The two small embossed plates on the left-hand side I purchased this past weekend at a garage sale. They are Adam Antique by Steubenville bread plates produced in the 1930s to the early 1950s. I purchased both plates for $4.00, but they could easily fetch $10.00 each online. Look at their detail:
The platter in the center was purchased at the antique mall for $5.00. It doesn’t have any stamping on it at all, so I am clueless as to its value. The purchase I’m most proud of is the H. Burgess Burslem Ironstone China Lilly of the Valley platter. That was a mouthful. It was my most expensive purchase at $28, but after doing some research online, I’ve discovered it could sell for anywhere between $50 and $100. I’m getting really good at this treasure hunting thing!
Again, I asked my husband if he’d help me and kindly hold up a plate above the kitchen sink. Then above the windows in the dining room. Above the dining room window they went!
I’m really happy with how they look. I’d really love to fill a whole wall with a grand display, but this looks great for now. Well, except for those wood blinds. Cafe curtains are in order. Time to get out the sewing machine!
Thrifty Suds Update:
I received an email the other day from Patty, a lovely nest follower, asking how I liked the suds so I thought I’d share this update with you. I love them! I won’t ever go back to ready made detergent. I will make it again and again. I love the way it smells fresh and clean, and to give it a little extra scent I add Downy to each load. Our clothes look great coming out of the wash. If you want to add your own scent, however, you can add 2 Tablespoons of your favorite essential oil to the large batch recipe before mixing, like lavender perhaps. As for dissolving, it does quite well. I put it in at the start of the load with the water before I add the clothes, and it dissolves almost immediately. And at $11.15 to make a batch that will last us over half a year, it just makes monetary sense to make it ourselves!
