For those of you who are not aware of this phenomenon, when Dovi has medical issues going on, I get seized by a burning desire to be crafty/redecorate my home.
My friend Aliza says it's called transference-transferring the inability to control Dovi's medical issues into the controlled environment of craftiness.
Whatever the whole psychobabble explanation is, when Dovi is sick, I paint. Or decoupage. Or hot glue.
So, without further ado.
I read this tutorial. And had to do it.
And I hung it up on the wall in my kitchen.
But it looked sad.
It needed friends.
So I went to the scary thrift store on half price Monday.
$3.60 for the entire display.
Well, if you include the mounting hardware, $6.60.
Plate 1 (the monogrammed one) cost $.50
Napkin pack cost $1.99
All other plates? $1.11 together
Mounting hardware cost $3
