Little Vintage Pedestal Cake Plate I Made.

Okay, okay, so I went out junkin' again today! Ya can't keep a good chick down, ya know!! Now, for those of you who don't know my "story" (and I'm always good for a "story" for the women in my ebay group) we moved from 5,000 sq. ft. 12 room house on an acre to an 1800 sq. ft. house on a postage stamp yard about 3 years ago. When we moved here from California 15 years ago I shopped for an entire year buying things I thought we'd never see in Idaho. I was pretty much right with that one but we go back home to Calif. on a regular basis to see the kids.

Anyway, we were overwhelmed with "stuff"! I have sold or given enough away to furnish 3 houses, truly! I have "stuff" up in our "garage attic" that I have forgotten about. I have "stuff" in my cabinets I have forgotten about. Thus, I'm presenting a pedestal cake plate I made yesterday out of one of several plates of this lovely old vintage plate. Go over to my other blog, La Maison Rose, to see it if interested in buying it for a "great price"!!

And just you wait till I show you tomorrow what I got today! Whooooooohooooooo!!
