I too have fallen for plates on the wall. I've spent a lot of time looking for the right size, the right shape, the right embellishment on the plate. I finally found them, found the quote I wanted and hung them up on my living room wall. I've had a blank space for a while and now it's filled. The only other thing I've done is add a ribbon to the red and white plate,, the polka dot black ribbon that is on my door as well. I really love how it turned out and the quote if you are unable to read it is from Herman Melville.." Life is a voyage that's homeward bound".. love that.. love home!
