I Need Your Opinion…Please Vote for your Favorite

Hi everyone!  I need your help.  The following photos are groupings of decorative glass plates that will be hung on a wall.  They are quite large…approximately 6 feet wide by 4 feet high (the total grouping.)  I have moved these plates for a total of about 5 hours (and boy does my body know it!)

I have narrowed it down to the following four photos (down from the gazillion I looked at!) and would like to put it out there and see what grouping “talks” to you.  So…if you don’t mind…let me know which is your favorite.

And I can’t quite promise that I won’t put up the rest of the gazillion! πŸ™‚

  1. Fun stuff Lorrie; crowdsourcing your decorations. I would like to move them around in person to see & feel the best grouping. I like 1 or 2, and might arrange them slightly differently, but I definitely like the spiral plate as the focal point. πŸ™‚

    1. Brad!! I wish you were here to move them around!!! Hehe! The two largest ones sit flat on the ground…but the others have a 1.5″ diameter piece of glass sticking out (that is how you mount them) so I have to place 3 tennis balls underneath to balance the plates! So moving them has been an act of juggling, balancing, and working out!!

      Thanks for your input…when you say you would arrange them differently did you have something in mind? or just in general? Thanks!! <3

  2. Hi Lorrie. Nice glass pieces you have here. Are they going up in your place? I would have to say 1 or 2, because the biggest one seems to make sense in the middle, or as the focal point. Actually, looking at it again, I think 2 works best. It seems most harmonious as a cluster.
    Let us know which you chose ok.

    1. Hi Staci! Thank you so much!! Yes…they will go on a main wall (I am really praying it works…that it will not look too big!) A friend gave them to me as she couldn’t use them…she knows how much I adore them. So happens the colors will work in the room πŸ™‚ It will be quite the job getting them all up on the wall…as the placement is “tight” where I have them overlapping. But I will believe that it will work out beautifully and I will get to enjoy this most generous present!!! Thanks for your opinion….I will let you know! Hope you are super! <3

  3. Okay…wait!…No, wait!…I a m t h I n k I n g…number 4, no wait! Yep, yep, I have it now…it is absolutely number…1, no, 2, no, aw, shucks! LOL…#3, for sure!


      1. LOL…I’m just a screwball, what can I say…You know you are most welcome. You know I can see you struggling with that project as you said…that is so “Lorrie,” at least to my thinking.

        It just HAS to be right or else!

        Got your email, thanks a lot. One is on its way back…

  4. #3. The orange/red is my favourite, so the placement is important to me. Has to be central, and not too high or too low. So, #3 πŸ™‚

      1. She likes to be part of me blog. It is so sweet. She likes to be part of whatever I am doing. She writes healing notes and songs in a little journal. It is precious. She has her own private blog too. <3

    1. Oh, Laurie! It became so overwhelming! It is a major project to hang…and pretty “permanent!” But I am going to let go of the FEAR involved because this gift was meant to bring me JOY!! Thanks Laurie!! <3

      1. Yes, as some comments here — maybe it isn’t supposed to be so serious of a thing. I know I felt kind of overwhelmed with my book and once I got the proof all the worry seemed so silly πŸ™‚ I realized there is really no wrong way… <3

    1. I admit I’m kind of hungry…so I was thinking the big orange one would make a great pasta dish!! πŸ™‚ Just kidding! They will all be mounted (hopefully successfully) on the wall behind my sofa…a giant art piece! Send me good thoughts that the project goes well…and looks great!! Thanks Andy!

  5. #4 is my favorite. I like the way the large yellow plate is on the bottom and to the right. I also really like the aquamarine plate with the golden center being displayed above it. The other arrangements have bolder colored plates arranged in a way that seems to overpower that plate a little.

    1. Thank you for your detailed response
      …I really love the smaller aquamarine plate…it has so many aspects that are pleasing to the eye. I appreciate you taking the time to respond πŸ™‚ Have a super day!

    1. Thanks dear Me’lanie!! I had two favorites from the start…but then I would look again and see why the others made the cut! And then I would be confused all over again!! πŸ˜‰

    1. Yes! Thank you for voting πŸ™‚ I am in the process of “planning” the actual hanging. There are many factors to consider…I hope to have it completed this weekend…and I will write a post to show the finished project! Thanks for stopping by! πŸ™‚

        1. Yes…I agree! Thanks again!
          I read some of your earlier posts today. Then I went to my Mom’s and she had an article written by her brother that she wanted me to read. I felt like I was reading your posts again!! Something happened and I didn’t get to check the facts…but my Uncle was enlisted and went to NC for training…He jumped out of gliders….I will check the facts and get back to you. But it was kind of bizarre…I don’t usually read about war times…and then to read two stories today that were so similar. Maybe they knew each other…?

    1. Hi David…Thanks for voting! I had hoped to get to hanging them today…but it may not happen until tomorrow. I will post about the “winner” and hopefully a great photo of the finished project! I am happy you stopped by!

  6. I’m too late to vote but I did see where the plates came from which I was curious about. They are stunning! They look hand made which would be even better. They were beautiful any way you arranged them but #1 brought my mind to the look of a comet or shooting star with the bright orange at the front followed by the trail of light.

    1. Oh…I love your description!! You are not too late because I did not get to hang them this weekend as anticipated. Thank you…I love them also…I’m so grateful! ! πŸ™‚ Hope you had a great weekend.

  7. Not wanting to be swayed by any other opinion, I skipped the earlier comments just so I could cast my completely uninfluenced vote for #2. It has something to do with the large orange and yellow plate jumping off the screen at me. At any rate, I’m glad to see you able to occupy yourself with these beautiful dishes, and you have my hopes that your day has been a good one. I’ll read you later.

    1. Thank you so much! I love what you did also….I would have done the same thing! πŸ™‚ I have had a few crazy family health crisis’ that have prevented me from doing the actual hanging. I can’t wait to get them on the wall…but my time has been spent elsewhere. As soon as I get them up on the wall I will make a post with the “chosen” formation! Thanks again for stopping by πŸ™‚

  8. I like the fourth choice. Three plates with blue accents make a triangle around the rest and the ones with the least amount of design are centralized. This seems the most balanced arrangement to me. It forces one to look equally at the variety.

    1. Hi Daniel!! Welcome πŸ™‚ Thank you so much for expressing your opinion so wonderfully!! I really loved when people were able to tell me WHY they chose the pattern they did. Your ideas were very detailed and I see what you are saying. I am absolutely crazy because I was all set to install the plates and then my life exploded. It will be quite a while before I am able to get them on the wall…but as soon as I do I will write a post about it! Thanks for stopping by & for voting!! πŸ™‚
