What's black and white and red all over?

I am ashamed to say that these plates have been sitting on my kitchen counter since their acquisition back in April.  I linked 'em up to some parties this week, which served as a reminder to put them away already!

Very timely, b/c the destructicator (destroyer/investigator) accomplished her goal of ruining the three tall vases on the dining room table.  That picture only shows two...she had already broken the other by then.  Sigh, fine, i'll have to buy something else now because the Ikea vases weren't enough of an impact on their own.

 I stopped in my tracks to try this out since the plates were on their way to the dining room closet, and voila!  Don't they look like they were made for this, especially since i cut down the flowers! 

I am excited to link up to Shop The House Sunday this week, because it means i was extra savey and not extra spendy!  woot!  How have you been extra savey this week?
