My mom is leaving tomorrow and I hate to even talk about it. I'm just way to far away from my family. It feels like it gets harder not easier every year.
I still found the time to spend on a small project (even with my mom around) which I'm so excited about. If you follow me on Pinterest then you might have noticed already my Piero Fornasetti obsession.
I really love Piero Fornasetti's designs. So much inspiration.

I'm sure you have seen the theme and variations (Terma e Variazion) plates by Piero Fornasetti. You can see some of them in the image above.
I'm infatuated with those plates and Lina Cavalieri's face. Her classic beauty inspired Fornasetti and she reminds me of my grandmother.
|Aren't they fun? You know that I love silly things around the house here and there.|
You can buy the plates at Unica Home for $195. I don't have to tell you that it's just not within my budget to buy plates for $195 each, right?
I was thrilled when I found and purchased these Fornasetti inspired tile stickers from the German version of Etsy for 10.50 Euros. Since I don't have tiles in the kitchen or bathroom walls, I wanted to use them for something else.
I thought about putting them in a frame and hanging them, but I changed my mind when I found some plain white plates at Target for $3.99 each. I cut out the circle images and pasted them on the inside diameter of each plate.
To hang them I bought plate hanger discs (I actually paid $2.50 at AC Moore not $3.73) which you can see on the picture below. I can't stand the look of the metal contraptions that go around a plate to hang them.

I know that there are many people who despise people like me who make cheap imitations from expensive designer pieces. But you know what? I don't care. It's not in my budget, I love the original and wish I could have it but it's not going to happen. Bottom line!
|How do you like the gold sea urchin? It's from the Nate Berkus line at Target.|
I like my plates with the white border. The originals are completely filled with the image.
So what do you think? Cheesy or Cool? And I won't be mad if you tell me the truth... I can handle it, but I will still like them no matter what you say, haha! (Y'all know I love your comments!)
Talk to you on Wednesday und guten Tag.
