I wasn't going to blog today.  I have been thinking of blogging every couple of days to give my life a little more balance (I do work full time).

But then, tonight I heard a crash.  I thought it was Jason taking out the recyclables.   Then, I heard him call upstairs and ask me what shattered.

"I have no idea; I thought it was you," I called downstairs.

And then I heard him, "Oh no . . . Steph it was your platter."

You know, this one that I blogged about just two days ago.

Note to anyone who is planning to monogram a platter: 
Use a plate stand or secure the platter somehow to your shelf.

I'm devastated.


  1. Oh you poor possum. That sucks big time. So sorry..will you make another one? I do hope so x

  2. No wait, you could break it a bit more and then use it to create a mosaic somehow and recreate the monogram, you know how they use broken china and grout to create a mosaic on a table or something. That could be cool!
    Sorry it broke. I know how that feels.

  3. Gina3- You think like me! I kept trying to figure out a way to save it!

  4. Nooooooooooooooo!
    Craaaap! I hate when stuff happens like this!


  5. Oh no. I hate when that happens and believe me it's happened to everyone! Wipe those tears. You know where to get the monogram, you can locate another inexpensive platter and just do it again. This time use an easel, velcro or plate hanger. Consider it a lesson learned.


  6. so sad. r.i.p. beautiful monogrammed platter.

  7. Ack, what a good lesson learned. I'm thinking of all the things just leaning on the walls behind my shelves right now.

    I would take that big piece, with the A on it, and plant it in a huge pot with a favorite plant... kind of like Manuela @ The Pleasures of Homemaking does with her plate garden... (link:

  8. So sorry! I do know how it feels, my GMILs antique platter slid out of a cabinet in my dinning room and shattered last month, and a project I did in my laundry room fell off the wall last week. What can you do but try again.

  9. Thanks for linking up to my blog roll!! Sorry it's taken me so long to stop by and say thanks. Busy busy!

    I'm devastated for you!! :( I loved that plate!!! I've been reading your blog for a while now. I don't comment much but I really do love it.

    Get a palte holder and place that Big A out near the bottom of a tree...Why waste the A or the could use it on the deck out back, maybe line the edged with gold foil.

    Then go back to HUbs and see if they have another platter to rescue and buy another A and this time when you are ready get a plate holder that sits on the shelf and put it on it to display.

    Somethings that look brokern can be redone. Think about the gold foil around the edge and use that platter some where.

    Just don't give up on the thought of a new monogrammed platter.

  11. Oh no! That's awful! I'm so sorry.

  12. AW, Stephanie, that is too bad. But at least it didn't cost a lot and maybe you'll find another one soon. Can't you us the Vinyl over again? I have lost so many things from when my kids were little. A really nice plate from London, some little figurines. I would put them up high, so that the kids couldn't get to them. But somehow, my four sons who were wrestling banged up against the wall and it came down! So I know your pain!!

  13. Sorry that happened to you....

  15. OH NO. I am very sad too! What a lovely, lovely plate!

    Can you re-use the monogram decal? Maybe all of your family and friends can look out for a similar platter at Goodwill, Craig's List, flea market or antique shop.

    SO sorry!! What a bummer!

  16. Well you know I feel your pain!! I'm so sorry, I hope you feel better today.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment! I truly appreciate your feedback.
