When you are practicing different arrangements of your beautiful plates on the wall, don't trip over your baby's bouncer and drop them.

*sniff*

Don't forget the shabby strap giveaway...and have a wonderful Easter weekend. I'll put a little Good Friday message up tonight when I'm done mourning my broken plates...

  1. Oh, wow! What a beautiful collection you can always use them in a mosaic piece and put that on the wall.

    Have a great day!

  3. I am so sorry about your beautiful plates. I have tripped over a baby gate and broke my elbow. I don't think your really a Mom till you have tripped over something of your kids!
    Hope you have a Great rest of the Day!

  5. I am so, sorry! They were so beautiful! I know you will be making more soon though! I ran to get the napkins at TJ Max as soon as I could. They just happened to have a package left with H, the last initial to our name. I spray painted my goodwill plate cream and stayed up till midnight having fun with my project. My plate looks beautiful thanks to you and I even monogrammed a couple more things around my home. I know you will find more plates soon! Good luck with your bathroom remodel. It will be fabulous as you have such great taste. Thank you so much for your great idea!

    Please show us the new and improved plates you do to replace them.

  11. Oh so sad! Good thing they were inexpensive. This is something that would totally happen to me. I'm a kultz.

  12. Oh...I'm heartsick for you my friend! I think, no I know I would have cried! Ever since reading your original post earlier in the week, I've been anxious for the chance to try this out. I have the plates. I'm heading to Tuesday Morning immediately after work today for the napkins. They apparently have some in stock (and on sale beginning today!) Our TJ Maxx was out of our initial! No doubt your next set will be even more beautiful...can't wait to see them. = )

    Happy Easter!

  17. Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry! Your plate collection looked beautiful!

    I went to Tuesday Morning the other day for the first day of their sale. They had tons of monogrammed things, including your napkins. I picked up a few for myself and for gift but they were a little more expensive than TJMaxx. Maybe I'll head on over to TJMaxx today and check out their loot!

  21. Oh no! I'm sorry about your beautiful plates.

    Hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend.

  22. OH NO! So sorry about your beautiful plates. I am a total klutz and can trip over my own two feet, so I totally empathize with you.

    On a brighter note, you are such a crafting genius, you will probably come up with some amazing craft project using broken plate pieces. I can just see all of us in a few months breaking our plates on purpose. ;)

  23. Ohhhh no! That's so sad, I'm sorry! I hope you can find some more plates you love!

    You are so creative and talented I'm sure you'll be able to find something really quick!

  24. Awwwww . . . I'm so sad for you! I actually tripped over my baby's exersaucer today too. But luckily I was only holding some fabric for a mistreament. Your plates were so beautiful too! ((HUGS))

  25. Melissa...I need help! I have been following your blog and have been successfully thrift store shopping for item make overs. So I put the first coat of paint on my ceramic item, fine, beautiful. I wait overnight, so its totally dry. Second coat and it immediately bubbles in some spots! my ceramic bunny did this too! What is going on. How do I prevent this. I am very frustrated. I hope you can help me.

  26. Ooooh nooooo! Your plates were so beautiful too. I hope you're able to rescue them somehow.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Since they'll be up high, maybe you can salvage them by gluing them back together. I don't think anyone would be able to see a crack from far away. Sorry that happened...sounds like something I would do!

    ReplyDelete
  28. cutting to the chase... I like the red toile one :) and I *heart* your tunes.
    Sorry about your beauties, I loved the tutorial you did to show how to do those. I'll take your advice and clear my path when I do them.

  29. I am so sorry! Hopefully you can recreate these lovelies. A blessed Easter to you.

  31. Oh man! this is horrible. I'm so sorry.

  32. I know I shouldn't, but this made me laugh! It sounds like something I would do! So sorry your beautiful plates are broken, but thank you for the smile!

  33. I know the feeling.... I loved those plates too!

    Found your blog this week and LOVE IT!!!! Seriously, one of the best blogs I've come across in a long time!!! :) Given me a new vision and a fresh perspective of my home!

  34. Bummer...They looked so pretty too :( Hopefully you can use them in a project.

    ReplyDelete
  35. That really stinks, but happens to me all.the.time. I am so clumsy. Always tripping and dropping stuff, so know you are not alone! I just bet you will be able to come up with some other genius way to use those plates though! I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  36. oh! hate that for you. but, a little glad to know these things happen to other people too...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ohhhh Noooo! So sorry!! I love someone's mosiac idea!

    ReplyDelete
  38. A moment of silence is required for your beautiful, beautiful plates. So sorry. We can all relate...I'm sure each and everyone of us has a similar story to tell. I know I do.
    Have a blessed Easter with your family.

  39. Oh dear! I'm sniffing with you.

  40. I can totally relate. Back in Feb I was decorating for Valentine's Day when I was trying to put up a banner on my hutch. I didn't want to tape it so I put a pitcher on top of the ribbon on each end. I accidentally pulled on the banner & knocked off one of my pitchers which of course had to fall on top of my teapot. My pitcher was in a gazillion pieces (luckily for me it was the pitcher I liked the least) & it broke the lid to my teapot. So now I use my teapot as a vase (which works for me as I don't drink tea). And I now had an excuse for a new pitcher. So it worked out in the end. But your plates were beautiful. I would be in mourning too.

  41. I love those plates with the monograms. I really want to try that. Too bad yours broke! Maybe you can do another entry about how to mend broken plates?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh no! Maybe you can super glue them back together without anybody noticing. (At least that's what I do with everything!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  43. No! What a bummer! Darn it! Oh well... only things! Right?!

    Smiles,
    Jen

  44. Oh, the horror, the horror....i feel your pain. I hope you are able to find some more pretty plates to hang. Or maybe try to salvage those with glue?

  45. I was going to make a floor mirror out of an old bathroom mirror... and I layed it on the floor to apply glue (to stick to plywood) and tripped.

    My big fat body landed on the mirror and now I can't make a floor mirror...probably ever.

    ::sniff::

    here's a link to said mirror (before) http://cannwin.blogspot.com/2010/04/craft-5.html
