A vintage plate holder ~!

Happy Tuesday everyone ~ We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving spent with family ~

Mr. Vintage and I were talking and he knew (he always knows) that I have wanted a vintage magazine holder to hold platters or plates or whatever ~ Well, he did it again ~

He made me one and I painted it and it looks marvelous~!

I had to put my little chicken plate in it ~ I absolutely LOVE IT !~

I know it's not vintage ~ but it's wonderful anyway ~ thank you Honey ;-)

What have you made recently, that isn't really vintage but looks like it ~ I would love to hear about it ~ I love to share ideas




  1. What a cute idea and such a clever hubby! I love the chicken platter and all your vintage jars! I'm afraid I don't have anything home made vintage things though. Have a great week! Blessings, Pamela

  2. What a Guy! It is perfect! It displays your chicken platter perfectly!

    Hope you have a great rest of week!

  3. I just found your blog and love it! Your lucky you have a husband that can make things. Your chicken plate looks great it it!

  5. Vintage or not, how wonderful that he built it for you!! He is a keeper :)


    P.S. Happy Thanksgiving :)

  6. I like something a husband makes even better than vintage, and I really love vintage :) Love your new "plate rack" it's beautiful, and love your chicken plate.

  7. Cute plate rack..WTG Mr. Vintage and Happy Thanksgiving to you both.

  8. That little rack your hubby made for you sure looks darling with your chicken plate displayed in it. What a great idea!


  9. That Mr. V is a sweetie, huh? Enjoy your new chicken pen!

  10. My husband is helpful like that too. Being a carpenter, he can make just about anything I want, and it's much less money!

  11. I see your clever hubby is at it again. Great job as always!!! Love the cute egg plate, too!!!

  12. Your hubby is a clever guy! A sweet gift from him is always better than vintage.

  13. It works and looks great!
    Love your tablesettings for Thanksgiving ~ mix and match that looks great.

  14. I love your plate holder, it looks marvelous there with your chicken plate in it.
    The last thing that I made new, but to look old was a sign. I love old looking signs.
    Hugs, Cindy

  15. This is sweet indeed! I love the look of it!

  17. Oh Marianne,
    I've been wanting one of those for a while too. I'm going to have my hubby read your post...See if he gets the hint ;-) Hee, hee, hee. Your hubby did an awesome job with your plate holder. Your little chicken plate looks adorable in it.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  18. Lucky you-
    I wish my husband was able to do thinkgs like that. Neither one of us has a creative gene in our body. I guess I’ll just have to enjoy yours.

    Love you blog-
    I’m a follower

  19. well, vintage or not...I think it looks Great.
    love all your fun vintage kitchen dishes etc.

    I haven't made anything........I really DO NOT make things, I am a buyer...cause I am just not that creative.
