I have a plain old plate stand... flat gold paint with rings for 3 plates. Some of you know that I'm setting Pieces of D up at a wine festival this coming weekend. I'm trying to be creative, but frugal, with my displays, since I splurged on an 8 foot table and am trying to save for a tent. Anyway... I've been going crazy making ornaments from wine corks and beads to have something wine themed to sell (besides my grape paintings). No I didn't drink all the wine... I have friends that save corks for me... but I did drink some of it! So... I saw my plain little plate stand sitting there and thought... Why not hang the ornaments from it? I'll even make a price sign and clip it to the handle with a clothespin! Ta Da!
Not a bad idea huh?
And they are so pretty and sparklie!
And some are even elegant...
What do you think?
