my search for irony is over
I have been busily gearing up for a couple craft fairs this winter. This summer I started selling pedestal dishes that I make at my friend Mar’s coffee shop. I find vintagey dishes or any fun/funky dishes that grab me that I think will make a great pedestal. Then I pair them with either a candle stick or an upside down goblet/glass. I have been quite pleased with how well they are selling. So I decided that this year I would take them to some craft fairs along with some other fun items I’ve been making. My table is covered and the guest room is overflowing from my efforts of the past few days. I have been putting together pedestal dishes like crazy! Today I was getting something out of a dish cupboard and I needed to move my own cake pedestal to get to it. It is a cutie white one with scallops that I love. As I picked it up to move it … it broke! I mean just the plate and the stand came apart. But in the process I almost dropped it which would have had more of a Humpty Dumpty effect on it. After composing myself from the “oh no!” instant reaction, I just had to laugh. Well, at least I know how to fix it.
(below is just a small sample of the pedestal dishes I have been making.)
