Happy Valentine’s Day to Me

The running joke in my family is that mom buys what she really wants! No amount of online links or photos of my wish list work.  I even posted this on Instagram since my children are over Facebook!   I actually ordered this from Crate and Barrel the day after Christmas when it didn’t show up under the tree!  The good news is it was on sale!  It is part of my Valentine Décor for February!  And, it is my Merry Christmas, Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Birthday gifts to ME!

Seasonal Decor with Tape… All Year Round!

plate tape 4

At a tag sale last summer I snagged a 1/2 dozen small serving platters.   They are great “neutrals” in my addiction to plates! plate tape 2

The thing with neutrals is they can get a little bland. Or, in the case of my white serving dishes,  a little pasty! Like my thighs this time of year! So, if you are anything like me a little color makes a huge difference.  Spray tan anyone? But, in this case it wasn’t spray paint, it was masking  tape. I found these at Target in the dollar section.

So when I saw these fun patterns I thought I would store it in my crap cabinet- I mean craft cabinet and have it for when “inspiration strikes.” Well, it struck ladies! Seasonal tape meets white platters.  plate tape 4
So here are a few platters. Now I want to go back to Target and find more seasonal tape!
