I so wish I could see your face when you first lay eyes on this.
When I first saw it I squealed with delight.
My husband brought this home from work and before I even registered what it was or that it might possibly be for me,
I felt this utter excitement wash over me.
It’s just SO CUTE.
So, here’s the story:
My adorable “Target” friend Melissa Kaiserman made it for me. Melissa lives in Spokane and we have run into each other at Target, so she is my Target friend. She has also taken some classes from me. She is a wonderful mother, scrapbooker and all around creative woman currently contributing to the collective inspiration at Write. Click. Scrapbook.
Melissa started with bright, happy plates from Target, and then added light weight candlesticks from the dollar store (crazy huh?)
Here’s what they looked like before she primed and painted them.
No way! I know, there’s going to be this sudden and unexplainable rush on dollar-store candlesticks now.
Here’s how it all breaks down:
big plate + painted candlestick + small plate + drawer pull + button + brad = SUPER adorable catch all!
Melissa says: I made myself one using the blue polka dot plate and the multi-colored one that reminds me of a piece of candy. I’ve got it in the middle of my scrap island, figuring I can use it for the little odds & ends that accumulate during a project and tend to get buried or knocked on the floor!
Oh, by the way the “+” is E6000 Glue
The funny thing is I had just bought these exact plates for Addie’s little kitchen upstairs.
Melissa — I LOVE you.
Thank you so much for thinking of me. I’m so inviting you over, so we can make MORE together!
