Love Me Tender Monday: Elvis Presley Collector's Plate

I hope I am not the only one who watches shows like Hoarders or Clean House and wonder how people can have such squicky taste in decor. Why the heck would anyone collect crazy-eyed dolls and then display them? Did it cost a ton of money to add mildewy lace to every piece of furniture in the house? How could a person justify the purchase of umpteen kitty plates, hang them in the living room, and be proud of them in a non-ironic way?

And that, my friends, is why I am hiding this Elvis Presley plate in the middle of this Love Me Tender series.

But, I secretly love it.

I am hoping to half ironically, half lovingly hang it in the perfect place in my house someday. And I say someday if only because we are moving about a half an hour north on Saturday--and I haven't even seen the inside of the place yet! Decorating will be uber-fun, and you know I will be searching for a nook or cranny that will do this plate justice.

  1. I will still be your friend, even if you collect Elvis plates. Also, if I ask nicely, will you guys not move?
