"A Darling Idea".....

Saturday, March 20, 2010

O.K....not that I need to move to want to decorate my house, but a "new space" definitely spurs on my "re-decorating tendencies"!....Through the years, I have always favored a " country farmhouse feel",... with a bit of elegance thrown in for good measure. And in amongst all the worn wood finishes & antique toolboxes, this girl definitely needs a bit of glitz in the mix,....usually in the way of a drippy chandelier or a few mercury glass candlesticks!

So with decorating on my mind, I was thumbing through a few old magazines & came across this "darling idea"!...An idea I am so going to try!.....Making "drapery tie-backs" from "butter-pat plates"!....I already have a huge addiction to china, especially plates, so this project is perfect for me!

All you need is a large flat head screw, a washer & a butter-pat plate. You take the washer & put the screw through it, then super-glue the plate to the screw/washer & you have it!...The most charming drapery tieback ever!...

So this week, I will be looking through my stash of tiny plates & deciding which ones will accessorize my drapery panels!....So easy & so pretty!

Enjoy your Sunday!......Your friend, Heidi XO

Hello Heidi...what a great idea!!! I love china to and I need tiebacks so this would be right up my alley. Hm...I'll have to go through my 'stuff' and see what I can find and if I can't find anything I like then I'll hit the thrift shop or the flea market. Thanks for the great inspiration! Have a wonderful day (Tuesday) Maura
