We recently found this idea over at the Hallmark Magazine Web site, and immediately did a double-take. The idea was intriguing -- what better use of old mismatched plates than to make your garden look good -- but still, we were scratching our head a bit.
Described as a way to liven up a lackluster area in your yard, Hallmark Magazine tells you how to achieve the look in three steps: use a half-moon edger to create the space for the plates; buy a pile of plates from a thrift store (although, we think just about every household has some unused old plates they're hiding) and position the plates and plants.
We like this idea in theory, but go back to scratching our head again. What do you think?
