Mother’s Day Throwback – Vintage Decoupaged Plates

plate3
Since Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite gift ideas for this special day. When I worked in the craft industry, I had the pleasure of working with so many talented artists and crafters. One of my favorites of all time is  Cathie Fillian. A few years ago, I was inspired to do a series of plates honoring my favorite women after I saw a set of plates that Cathie created using Mod Podge.  I presented my parents and in-laws with these decoupaged plates honoring my two grandmothers and my husband’s grandmothers. I was lucky to find romantic, vintage pictures of each of the four women, that were then photocopied and paired with pretty scrapbook papers and cut out phrases that fit their personalities.

The first photo is of Eunice: My dad’s mom. She was the quintessential modern woman. Avid fisher, homemaker and an all-around lovely person. Erin’s antique re-do features her dressers.

Pauline: My husband’s paternal grandma. Smart as a whip. In her early 90s, she is still going strong

Edith: A fun-loving and vibrant woman. We are lucky to still have her.

Cenora: As sweet as they are made. My fondest memories of childhood are eating breakfast and hanging out with her.
These were so fun and easy to make. You can follow the general directions from the Mod Podge Sheroes post to create your own.
