Diane made these plates for her grandmother when she was in Brownies.

As Brownie troop leader, I ordered a kit which included plates and special markers. Once my Brownies had drawn their pictures on the plates, the plates were sent back to the company and the image permanently set.

The "text" she added to each image still brings a smile!

Unlike so many of you reading my blog, my kids are all grown up! So I appreciate you allowing me to share a little of Diane's and Michael's past once and a while. xoxoxoxo

Oh my goodness! these are priceless!

And I think Diane should use the "tweet tweet" one as her twitter avatar for a while. ;)

Awesome plates - If you can eat off them, they would be fun dessert plates.

Actually you can eat off of them!  They are actually dinner size plates made of melmac or one of those "fabulous" 70"s dinnerware plastics.  But you are right!  Dessert size would have been great fun.

I haven't laid eyes on these in at least 30 years!  So when they appeared on my e-mail - well - I do consider them treasures!

Thank you for letting me share!

I haven't heard from Diane yet - don't know if she is going to kill me or love them!

These are a wonderful treat.

These are a wonderful treat. I think "tweet! tweet!" and "crunch! crunch!" are my favourites :)

They're so adorable Pam! So

They're so adorable Pam! So Diane's been rather creative all her life by the looks of it!!!.....with a sense of humour with it! :))))

Yes, Pam, I think she was

Yes, Pam, I think she was born with a crayon in her hands.  Not totally sure, because I was sleeping!

There was such a huge volume of art in the house, but, sadly,  I didn't keep much of it - most of what I kept was the three dimensional art and all the cards she made me. (NOT the best decision I ever made!)  So, receiving these from my mother the other day was a huge thrill.
