What's A Girl to Do...?

...when she has some really pretty plates, that are mismatched orphans? I love old dishes of all kinds and I have random bits and pieces of sets. I love any kind of transferware, especially brown and green. When I find a plate that catches my eye, I usually buy it, then not know what to do with it.
I found these two Austrian gold rimmed plates several years ago and they have been in a drawer of my china cabinet. They are just so sweet and feminine.
I have wanted to try this little, and I do mean "little", project for a long time and just never got around to it until last week when I saw a couple of other blog posts showing their beautiful plate pedestals. So I dug around to find some glass candlesticks that I had and voila! Look what I have!

This little salad plate pattern is called "Coronet".
Something plain now can take center stage, or center "table".

I'm sure that many of you have created these,
but there are a few of us late bloomers out there that either didn't have the time
or the motivation to try it.

And if you don't have any fabulous cakes, cupcakes or desserts,
why not try something else just as sweet, with no calories.

I have found a wonderful blog that I'm sure many of you know about,
French-Kissed. Jermaine was my motivation to get busy on these.
Her blog and photos are beautiful, and you can get lost for a few minutes
in her lovely home and French-Kissed philosophy.
Her entry of July 10 highlights her masterpieces. She is a real inspiration.

I used E6000 adhesive to bond the plate and candlestick.
Many of you craft gals are very familiar with this brand.

Have a fun and creative weekend.
