I have this friend,Terri, who is a Decorating Diva.....and she has taught me to decorate with dishes. I have them all over the house, in every room. Needless to say, when I need to use a particular dish I have to look all over the house and wash it before I can use it. The price you pay for decorating with dishes. I love it! Give it a try, scatter your dishes throughout the house.......I think you'll like it!
