Ironstone Platter Wall Reveal


Howdy, howdy howdy!!! Geez Loooweez it's been awhile since I posted. 
I try to not make my blog a personal diary where I just ramble on and on about nothing that interests you, although I am tempted sometimes when I feel like my head is going to explode from watching Disney movies and washing out sippy cups, so I pretty much only post when I have new junk or projects to show you. 

     Hanging platters on a wall is much harder than it looks. My little "helpers", bless their hearts, they mean well. But honestly I had to scream "Out, out, OUT!" a bazillion times during this little project. My 7 year old had somehow harnessed herself with belts (like a horse) to a baby stroller (the carriage) which contained my 3 year old. So the game of "runaway horse and carriage" went on around my feet as I balanced on a step ladder with dishes and nails. I tried yelling the Pony Express's secret password, Dakota, to no avail.

     But I survived and I'm happy with my ironstone platter wall! I've been collecting the platters for a couple of years now, with the intention of hanging them all together. It's so neat to see a dream realized!















 






Don't forget to link up to Cowgirl up tonight, the party starts at 8:30 p.m. (Mondays)...


See ya'll there, and thanks to all of you who participate.♥

I can't think of anything better to decorate this wall space. They look perfect there and you did a great job, even though you had a few "distractions"!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

I love your wall of platters!! I've been buying smaller plates for a bedroom wall, but they're hard to find. Enjoy the commotion of little ones at your feet. :@

Love your platters. I want to put some plates in my family room, but have been unable to find the little plate hangers.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

You did an incredible job with the rodeo going on under your feet! How fun... you will have a great story to tell to go along with your beautiful ironstone wall!

Terry Moore said...

As far as I am concerned, you can never go wrong with this look!

Erika@BeBookBound said...

Perhaps the most scrumptious wall ever! The elegant simplicity of it all is stunning. And kudos for not only having the ingenuity to do it, but for nurturing children who are ingenious themselves. Horse and cart? Brilliant.
