I really love those Brass Pineapples – but looking at them on Etsy, they are a little pricy, ranging from $90 – 189! But I found this cute trivet for $13

Pretty Little Thieves

I love how Pretty Little Thieves creator, Nancy transforms vintage plates into pieces of art! I had the chance to chat with Nancy about her amazing creations.

I have been drawing, painting and making things since childhood and never really stopped.

I have stacks of plates waiting to be used. I often choose the plate and then decide the illustration. I started painting on vintage plates because I kept seeing so many of them.Β  Most of the plates come from thirfting, garage sales, flea markets and some have been given to me.

In true artist fashion, Pretty Little Thieves pieces are spontaneous works, “I just start painting and will see where it goes. ” Check out the rest of Pretty Little Thieves (pictured above) Etsy shop here!
