Finally, I went to an old standby website, and there they were, or so I thought. Plates. Anthropologie had bright, vibrant, beautiful plates. If you know me, you know that I don't have any patience to wait for a package by mail and I am too cheap to pay for shipping. So, after a 2 year well appointment for Gil, we trudged over to the mall that is so not on the way home, with me in heels, him with a new flu shot prick and an empty stomach. Good combo.
I knew what I wanted. This mission would be brief. They WERE there! But there were more there, one more striking than the other. Oh my God, pay dirt. Pay dirt, but no money in my wallet. No mind though. I bought four, then had to scurry out of there, feet throbbing and a new package of about 12 lbs in tow, in addition to the 25.8 lb person who insisted on being carried, but he'll remain nameless.
That night, I carefully laid my plates out on our kitchen table and one by one, took them into the bathroom to compose on the wall. I didn't have any plate holders, but alas, I had
I then thought about it. Almost every room has a plate donning the wall. Damn it. I have a collection. I am not against them necessarily, but now there is so much more pressure to add to this collection. I like my collection. I am now committed. I will now add to my group of glazed porcelain spheres on my walls and we'll all like it. Yes, I will and I can't wait!
