UP !

This morning I hung up my Royal Albert saucers. 

I bought this set in Canada while on our Alaska RV trip in 2010. 

You can read all about the teacups (here). 

 I do love to hang stuff on my walls. 

 Hubby wishes I didn't... but me lets me anyways (thanks Sweetie!)

I used plate hangers in two sizes.

I like Bard's because they have little tiny plastic sheeves on their ends to protect the dishes.

Even though these saucers are small the 5 inch to 8 inch hangers worked better then the 3.5 to 5 inch ones.

Unfortunately, I had to use what I had on hand.

I traced around the plates (using paper towels) and with tape positioned them where I thought the saucers would look smashing.  

Then I marked through the paper on the wall where to put the hooks.  

I measured and eyeballed the placement.  

Now if Hubby hung them for me they would have been perfect because he measures everything!

I like them here.

This was an area without any decoration and the saucers bring color and interest to this corner of the room.

Ta daaa!

Slowly I'm getting closer to the end of my Rainbow Scrap Afghan. 

 One more color row after the white here and I'm caught up to where I was before having to frog.

I'm glad now I frogged it because my edges are completely even now.

  1. love the plates! They fit in perfectly in there in the corner.

  2. Good for you, I always need help hanging anything. xo

  3. The plates look perfect in that corner!

  4. The saucers look PERFECT to me! I do the "eyeball" thing too! I did the same thing last night in my new office that I am just about ready to post some blog pictures on :) And the hubby of this house would be a measuring fool if I let him at it too. So I hammer away while he's at work! ;)

  5. I love the plates. So pretty. Your afghan is beautiful.

  6. I love that little corner now! What a perfect spot for your treasures! I have my grandmother's collection of Royal Crown Imari...she had a large collection of various and assorted teacups and saucers from the pattern...I just love them. Wonderful treasures! Have a great weekend. Hugs, Annette

  7. Hi Sandy....
    your plates look pretty straight to me!
    Your rainbow scrap afghan took my breath away...
    LOVE the colors...goodness!
    Have a great weekend.

  8. Your plates look great on that wall space! I laughed when I read how you "eyeballed" it when hanging them. I always eyeball pictures and things when I hang them. Hubby measures and marks and measures and takes him FOREVER! Don't tell him, but everything I eyeball and hang in one minute looks just as good as his perfectly measured 15-minute jobs. Ha-ha. I shouldn't complain. He does pretty much whatever I want without complaining.

  9. Good job hanging those! I have that set too and love it. They look great up. That little space was crying out for them.
