Great price for a great plate flower! I often feel sorry for the single plates at thrift stores. Isn't it wonderful to be able to give odd plates a chance to shine again?

Thanks all for the nice comments and encouragement. The best part is that DH wasn't quite sure at first about junking up the yard, but really likes this plate flower and is now on board.

LOL at Luna. That is SO true. I was at a flea market last weekend and bought some sugar bowl lids and several saucers. The cashier thanked me for buying these mis-matched odds and ends, that are hard to sell. I thought, "Are you KIDDING me?!" These are GOLD!!

LOL, sprout. Those are the best, just the thing to add to the top of a project or finish it off somehow.

I bought a stack of broken Blue Willow bread plates super cheap. The lady commented that I was buying only the broken ones. Yep, I do this on purpose!

That's a lovely flower, you did a super job. I'm glad your DH is on board with junking up the yard now. Mine even brings me home things for projects now. Thanks for the pic.

Thanks all, I really appreciate your enablement, errr... encouragement!

Mary Engelbreit! Of course, I love her cheery designs. No wonder I grabbed this at the SA store.

I looked her up just now and found the cutest thing that's so appropriate on this forum...

I love her designs too! That is a very cute saying for a chair holding a bunch of bowls with plants/flowers in them.

Beautiful! Love the price!! That plate is perfect for garden junk flower!! My GF loves sunflowers so will have to find 1 of those, I have the center plate already think it will be her little gift from me next Christmas. We always make each other something! Thanks for the idea! Jan

With all these great comments, I got curious about the plate and looked up more info.

The pattern is "Sunny" by Tabletops Unlimited. I got a good deal for 99 cents as it is currently $9.99 on Replacements. The candle holder was only 25 cents because it was "green tags are 50% off" day at the SA store.

Thanks for all your positive comments. I have attached the link for you.

I like that plate it is so pretty. Bright colors for the yard.
Would like to find one like that for that price.

RE: Another first, this time a plate flower

Thanks doedoe2, I've looked all over the internet and can't find them much cheaper than $9.00 anywhere. Shipping is a killer on these.
