I finally got around to rehanging an ironstone plate in my window frame. The first one fell and broke. The new dish was a little plain so I added a fern to it today.
If I had glorious fall leaves I would have used one of them. But I love ferns and it sort of looks like a little Christmas tree. Don't get excited. I am not ready to decorate for Christmas yet. I know a lot of you are but I have to get through one holiday at a time.
So here's what I did. I took a fern frond. Frond? Not sure, anyway, part of a fern from outside. I ironed it between two pieces of wax paper. No steam. I learned later that I should have dried it in the microwave first so we'll see how long it lasts. I cleaned the plate with rubbing alcohol so there would be no residue.
Then I used some spray glue. I gave it a coat and let it sit for a minute while I ate a fudge mint oreo and a glass of milk. I didn't want it super sticky and it said to let it sit if you wanted it removable. What better way to pass the time then with chocolate and mint? They're only out for a limited time people.
