Thrifty Find: Dessert Plates.

March 24, 2010

Found these at my local Goodwill last week. Isn’t the design so delicate & lovely? Makes me want to bake a platter of cookies, or a tall round cake. Don’t ask me why there’s a hole in the middle though. I don’t know.

    Those are fantastic. I love the lattice work. (Regarding the hole, I think they were probably part of a tiered display stand.)

    there are treasures buried in goodwill! it takes some sifting but you can come out with some beautiful things. i agree with faith that they were probably part of a tiered dessert stand.

    thank you for stopping by my blog today. yours is lovely- i am so glad to have stopped by. your calligraphy is beautiful! i have been working on mine as well, thanks to wedding invitations.

    First, I LOVE your blog.

    Second, here is a link that could show you how to make those plates into a tiered stand:

    That’s prob. what those holes were for. I have one I found at a thrift store that I use for jewelry..

    Whoa, coincidence – I was just about to give you that same link for the tiered cake stand!

    Cathie, I found you via Oh, Hello Friend and am hooked! I don’t follow many blogs like this but I think ampersandity has found a place in my Google Reader. : ) Keep up the amazing photography and writing. Really enjoying them.

    And hope you have fun blogging!
