Decorating the Soffit

I am not a fan of soffits.  Unless they're enclosing duct work, I don't get it! Why not either A) make the cabinets go all the way to the ceiling, or B) have the space between the cabinets and ceiling open?  

First world problem, I know.

On the soffit by the fridge, I made this "Grocery" sign from a $6 clearance "Dream" sign from Hobby Lobby with a little acrylic paint...


There's another awkward soffit above the cabinets separating the kitchen area from the breakfast nook, and I have been looking for something to fill the emptiness.

While antiquing with my sister-in-law, Abby, in Chattanooga at The Knitting Mill, I found three coordinating Spode dishes that were stamped with handpainted designs. The pricetag was palatable at $6 each.  





They're not old, but that's ok with me because the designs and colors are so nice. They also have a lovely, slightly scalloped edge. Plus, sometimes truly old dishes are stained (not so pleasing while hanging on the wall) and pricey

Now to hang these pretty things.

Happy hunting!
