I only meant to tell my friend about them, and that I saw them for sale at a local shop for $9.95 each. After we talked about them, and she told me they sell on Ebay for $45.00 each I felt compelled to go back and buy them. Yes, I did look on Ebay first to see if they did sell for that amount, and at the time (about a month ago) there were some listings more than $9.95. I thought about it for a few days and then decided it would be a good 'investment' and went back and bought the plates.
My friend has these exact plates, but that isn't why I bought them. For now, they are on the wall in the blue bedroom. Jill will probably tell me I need to 'merch' them. Hey, at least I got them up! Well, technically, Jim did.
These pictures don't really do justice to to the beautiful blue color of the plates. What do you think? Do you like them? (Oh, and yes, we do have "popcorn" ceilings. Our whole house has them, except for the kitchen and bathroom. I know, so last century!)
