Plate It Up!

Last week, Mr. Bluebird and I went to Branson, MO to celebrate our 30th anniversary.  Neither of us had been there before, but we had such a fabulous time.  They have a beautiful riverfront area filled with shops, restaurants, and an hourly water show.  We also saw several shows, the very, very best being a family group called The Haygoods.  Any of you seen them?  They are a-m-a-z-i-n-g! Check them out on YouTube.  I highly recommend the song Shenandoah. Beautiful.


Now, you all know I couldn't leave that beautiful state without some kind of nifty remembrance to show off in our home.  Coffe mug? Um, noooo. Collector spoon?  Really, um, noooo. I decided upon a vintage Missouri license plate from 1982 (the year we were married).  It's black and white, and is perfect.  Did I think of this idea on my own?  Also, um, noooo.  I picked up this idea few weeks ago from Kelly atThe Essence of Home.  She has the most amazing blog and her cute Frenchy license plate was my inspiration!

Did I mention how much I love this plate? (Only $3.99!)
Well, that's my ode to our wonderful, fun, amazing trip!  Have a great rest of the week!

Wishing you happiness,

  5. Jane, This looks super cute! Found you via Debbiedoo's Newbie party. Looking forward to seeing more of your creative ideas!

  6. I love the vignette you created...the license plate is fun and unexpected. The wire basket really compliments it too. I'm a sucker for sentimental mixing it with home decor is always welcome in my book. Happy 30th Anniversary.
