What to Do With a Broken Plate

 Here's the herb garden which I redid this year.  I had to try to tame the oregano - right edge of the bed - and needed to replace some herbs that died out.  I have had a broken white plate in my herb garden for a couple of years. It's not visible but sat in the ground between the oregano and the savory.

One of my hobbies is Zentangle.  The act of doing it is Tangling.  I go to a club meeting once a month so grabbed the plain white plate and decided to decorate it with tangles.  I used permanent ink but don't know if the design will weather well.

Here's the plate in a new spot stuck in the ground in front of the basils and cilantro.

Too much of the bottom edge design was not visible this way so I got a stand.

Here it is on the stand.

I used 2 colors of pink, purple and black.  Dan gave it the stamp of approval!

Hmm ...  I have three more whole plates.  May just have to tangle them, too.

Oh, Marcia! Your tangled plate is just beautiful. What a perfect way to make a broken plate shine amongst the herbs! I just love your stone borders. Yesterday I found three shallow, stoneware bowls at a thrift store to create bee baths. One will have a happy home in our herb garden today. Keep tangling! ♡
