filling in

So there’s this wall that is in my dining room that I wanted to do something with.  I couldn’t find a ‘before’ picture…I guess I never took one because I never liked how that wall looked, mainly because before it had the 2 big not-very-attractive filing cabinets.  In my effort to change things up without buying a whole mess of stuff, I decided to make a plate wall using different plates and platters that I have around the house.

I had a nice start, but lo and behold, I don’t have that many plates and platters!  I have everyday ware, but it’s not really wall-worthy.   So I got the idea to use something else as a fill in.  And then maybe some day when I’m out and about (like a sweet little flea market in Paris…you know, that sort of thing…sigh), I’ll see some plates that will fit in and are not too expensive.

What these are are crocheted coasters, doubled and joined with a single crochet border.  I saw the idea somewhere on the internet….but no idea where I saw it.  There are just too many links to links to links!

Anyway, I used stash yarn…again, no idea what, it’s just leftovers from something.  Hah, this post should be about what I don’t know rather than saying what I do know.  Is it the known unknowns or unknown unknowns?  I’m afraid too soon I won’t know where the heck I am and I’ll be heading in the direction of the latter.

but that’s a whole other can of worms.  Anyway, I am kind of liking this.

    I like!! Yes, I think to venture back to Paris for some flea market plate finds would be lovely. When do we leave?
    I believe I’m thinking it is the known unknowns that I don’t know about…or do I? And now when I look at the word ‘unknowns’ it doesn’t even look like a word anymore…so does that make it unknown?

    You have such a knack for quickly making a room look both finished and homey. This looks great! (Which is known, not unknown.) There’s one word that looks wrong to me every time I see it, and that’s “misled”. My brain always wants to pronounce it “mizzled”. What that has to do with anything, I don’t know. So that’s would be a known unknown, right?
