Ahhh. Mr. Darcy. Swoon. Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books and movies (both the long and the regular length versions). What a romantic idea by the good people at Pottery Barn. I have seen a some versions of this inspiring dish on a few blogs now and I had to try my hand at it. I didn’t realize what a pain it would be for me! I haven’t used adhesive vinyl much and for some reason those little letters were getting the best of me. Despite it all I prevailed and adhered them to the plate. I had also cut out the citation in smaller letters but after the “bigger” ones gave me such a hassle I decided that it was good enough.
Here is the plain plate. I picked it up at D.I. for $.50. Not bad. The inside of the plate is 3 1/2 inches wide so it is a little plate – perfect for trinkets and such.
And of course the beautiful inspiration dish from Pottery Barn.
