My oldest daughter just graduated from high school.
It's a crazy thing to have your children reach a huge milestone. Very exciting and scary at the same time. I wanted to make something for her that she could take with her to college and have when she got homesick (which I'm sure she will :). It took many hours but they were fun-filled hours.
I've used them before in my home as you can see here and here. And anytime I see some pretty plates I have a difficult time turning them down. So when I saw this beautiful arrangement from my favorite store, Anthropologie, I immediately wanted to share.
