Nostalgia at its best...Plates and Hammocks
I like old plates and platters and when I get them from an estate for The Green Awning Gallery, they are not always perfect. Some are cracked or chipped and it is hard for me to dispose of them as I think they are still lovely. One way I have found to use them is to hang them on my fence. I grouped some on an outer panel and I hope those passing by are enjoying my display.
I remember walking up the hill to my Aunt Annie's and Uncle Ray's and playing in their hammock, a novelty for my siblings and me. How we loved climbing in and out of it. There were frequent tumbles but that was all part of the fun. To be honest, I still have not mastered the art of mounting a hammock. I am thankful that mine is hung in a secluded corner so no one can see me when I take a tumble. Due to the fact there is more "meat" on my bones than there was when I was young, all that is hurt is my pride!
The Green Awning Gallery has a lot of pretty plates, bowls and platters among all our merchandise, so come in and get 25% off any that you buy the week of July 17th - July 21st. Just mention that you read my blog. Until then....
