Monogrammed Dish

One of the cute things I found at John Derian's shop
are these initial plates:

They're made of glass.

The plates are also available in symbols
like the ampersand, exclamation point
and question mark.

I'm using this as a peg to turn this blah
into a TADA!:

A dessert plate I purchased at a thrift shop.

Punch a few letters from a magazine.

Attach the letter on the underside of the plate
with white glue and TADA!, a cheap and cheerful
version of the John Derian initial plate!

Add any letter you want and keep it for yourself
or turn it into a hostess present:

Just throw in a few bars of hand-milled soaps or
a chunky candle.


  1. Yes, these are fun to give away :) Thanks for visiting Jazzy!

  2. ,,,love the "tada" idea, and with the holidays right around the corner (cheers for that) your idea would make a sweet gift indeed,,,

  3. Oh Rebecca...I've got to work on my gift list for the holidays...yikes! Thanks for visiting today!

  4. This is a great idea! I have some clear vintage bubble plates from my grandma...this would be the perfect accent to them!
