~a lot on my plate~

Hello friends, and happy almost Thanksgiving!
I had a long post planned for today, but seeing as how we are hosting Thanksgiving tomorrow, and I still have a ton to do, this post will be short and sweet!
{I'm gonna try and come back with photos of my table...} Do you ever see something and think, "why didn't I think of that?"
That's how I felt when I saw this silver tray turned magnetic display board!
Now this is one thing I am definitely going to copy!
And speaking of unique things, does anyone know when Target is going to get another shipment of John Derian? I missed out on his first round of things and don't want to miss out again!
Have a great holiday and stay safe!
xoxo

I think that a lot! But I guess I could make some pretty good money if I would only think of some of these simple things first ;)

Happy Almost Thanksgiving to you too!

Happiest of days to you, Lovely Lady!

(That tray rocks, by the way. I've seen it before, but forgot about it. And I was JUST at a thrift store yesterday with stacks of trays! I guess I know where I'm headed later this week...) :)

The magnet idea is great! We've also done chalkboard paint on the middle of silver trays for the shop, they've sold well!
Have a super fantastic Thanksgiving!!!

I bought a big tray that was the John Derian line , I didn't even realize it was that until I saw this post :) The Target store here in Fort Worth, Texas had quite abit of it. I enjoy your blog and wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration!

I saw those silver trays in a magazine or blog and bought some great silver trays and made magnets from jewelry. My problem is trying to hang them on the wall. I tried these discs but some stick and some don't. Any ideas? Thanks! And I really love your blog! Great Thanksgiving post too!

Okay,

I loved the silver tray idea for a magnet board, sooooo, I marched on over to the thrift store and bought one. I brought it home and spent some time putting fancy ribbon on the sides of the handels to hang it to the wall..... to my suprise......... Not magnetic at all! I took a biger magnet and rubbed it all over the tray, but still, nothin! I even went online and did some reasearch and came up with nothing. How do you think they got these ones in your pictures magnetic? Do you think they might have glued heavy duity magnets to the back side of it? Im totally stumped!

I love all the birds. I think I'm going to steal that idea and do all my owls. Great ideas and photos.

Thanks for posting.
