Vintage Enamel Plate

Here's what I did to a vintage enamel plate. I love the blue edging. I left the little chippy showing.
I made little tubes for flower seeds out of copied vintage French music. I've had this little glass creamer for years, now I feel like I have put it to good use. How cute would it be to put a real bouquet of flowers in the creamer.
I drilled (with my new dremel)holes in the plate to attach an old key and also to make a hanger on the back
I made the charm to hang from the key adding glimmer mist colors to the paper.
I then painted the quote on the rim and painted the Hydrangea and rose...adding the cutest little bumble bee. I just put this on my Ebay.

Laurie,
Thanks for stopping by my blog! By the looks of all your wonderful, recent creations, when do you have time to sleep?!!

I keep going back and peeking at that little pink baby shoe. Too cute! I might need that one too. You know, a pincushion for girl pins and a pincushion for boy pins! Seems logical to me.

Wishing for sunny skies over on your side of the world!

xoxo Sue

Hey Laurie! My goodness! I saw the plate and thought, "now how does she find such pretty pieces?" Well, the answer is: it wasn't pretty until you altered it! The flowers and bumble bee are lovely. I love coming by to see what you've been up to!
Hugs,
Liv
