I received 3 perfect, old Blue Willow plates as an heirloom gift.
Sadly, by the time I unpacked them after a particularly bumpy journey home, they had all broken.
I sat and cried.
I had planned to hang them in my country kitchen as a feature above my window.
As I pondered over my shattered plates and broken dreams, I realized that I could use the pieces and create mosaic kitchen items.
So, with the help of my friend who came to visit for a week, we selected my galvanized metal watering can, vase and little metal basket, and had fun making mosaic.

And here are the results ~
My marvelous plates are on daily view and in use.
