{aedriel originals} + giveaway


I don't really know what it is with me and ceramic plates - but we have a bond. I have always loved the look of a bunch of antique, white plates all grouped together - hung on a wall. Simple. Timeless. but - adds character.

When I first saw the hand-painted, personalized plates that Aedriel has in her etsy shop...I was smitten. aah!! Can you imagine having one of these hung in your baby's nursery? or even hung with a wide ribbon in front of a mirror? or propped-up amongst framed black & white family photos? or added to a "plate grouping" like I mentioned?! [can you tell that these plates make me happy?]

gorgeous. absolute gorgeousness.

these make fabulous heirlooms - personalize with a birth date, anniversary, graduation, family reunion....any special day. (or even just something pretty to have!)

Each plate is specially made - for you. (size, words, names, colors, silhouette, etc.) - all customized.

Aedriel Originals
is the absolute best shop I have found that offers customized, ceramic plates.

**

You are beyond lucky. Aedriel would like to gift one of you with a personalized plate.
This one to be exact.

Monogram plate.
Your choice of color for the outer-rim.
Rim design - solid color? dots? something else?
Size of your choice: large (11.25" across) or small (8.75" across)
Style of writing of your choice
Personalize how you'd like! ... just the letter? have it be an Anniversary gift? a plate for a nursery with baby's name and birth date? graduation gift?
Even add personalization to the back! (example)
{can you imagine this plate hung on a wall surrounded by silhouette plates - 1 for each member of the family?! aah!}

AND! along with the plate - the winner will receive an Invisible Plate Hanger! no more metal hangers that are distracting and can nick your plate!

[ so pretty much - instead of build-a-bear ... this is build-a-plate! ]
-
Total prize value: $54.50
