Memory Plates and off to Canton, TX

This is one of my Memory Plates.  You've seen my Memory Pillows hopefully.  This is another take on using things from your past to display daily for your enjoyment.
This is an antique cream platter.  I Mod Podged the vintage doily onto it and let it dry. Then I added a photocopy of a vintage photo and a vintage postcard.  When I applied them, I used a small square of foamcore so that it would stand out from the plate. The last thing I did was add a cluster of hand-dyed crinkled seam binding.
This is another version.  Each piece calls for something different.  This one has a smaller doily glued on the center and a picture added along with a cluster of small vintage buttons.  I added the cluster of crinkled seam binding from which hangs an old key.
I do have some of these for sale in my Etsy shop, but they really are easy to make.  I make them so that you can take the picture and/or postcard off and put on your own special memories.
As you read this, if I can download it from my I Pad (remember, I'm not real computer savy), I will be at Canton, TX at the First Monday Trade Days flea market with my dear friend, Diann from Baird, TX. 
So, just think about what Saturday Treasures will be this week!!!!!!
Have a great weekend!
Till next time, Judy
