Ever fawn over something lovely and then be shocked at the price tag? Im a big believer in getting what you pay for so I'm not suggesting they lower their prices for the likes of lowly people like me. It just shakes me out of my cheapified stupor sometimes.
So what am I talking about? Plates! Specifically the beautiful specimens by Fornasetti and John Derian. I drool.
How amazing would a set of these look on a table or wall?
At $183 a pop, this will have to remain something that lives on in my mind alone.

Fornasetti images seem to be on all kinds of other things too - wallapaper, pillows, umbrella stands, etsy jewelry, etc. So his work must be licensed, right? Anyone know if and where I can download his images for personal use?
Slightly different but no less dreamy is John Derians work. (I loved his Target line but its lone gone now.) He makes a line of mesmorizingly beautiful decoupaged glass trays and plates. While his prices are a tiny bit closer to the ground, they are still quite expensive at $90 each from the picket fence.
I heart so many of his designs. And they look amazing on a table or a wall.
