You’ve seen multiple blog articles on making plate stands over the last months…
I have a new twist to the plate/dessert stand and I am making a memory with it. Here’s what I am using; 2 like plates, 1 crystal vase and on 1 crystal little bobble. All items were my moms and I remember them in our house growing up. My mom passed away almost 5 years ago at age 94.
Here’s the additional memory part. I’m not using this for dessert. I put this in my bedroom and I am using it to show off my Dresden ballerinas which were handed down to me from my mom. She was given them from my Great Auntie Bella who came from Scotland. The plate stand also holds a necklace of glass beads that also came from my Great Aunt Bella. She bought them on a trip to Venice many many years ago.
I placed the stand next to my bride doll. My Grandma Anne gave this to me when I was a little girl. I had the dress restored. My Grandma had the doll when she was a little girl and she died at age 101 in 1981.
This corner of my dresser has become a wonderful way to honor and remember so many beautiful people in my life.
How do you keep memories?
