Mr. Darcy's Plate- PB Knockoff

I love Pride and Prejudice.  I love Mr. Darcy (well, the later, humbled by love Mr. Darcy).  I DIE for the BBC adaptation and all its glory.  (Keira Knightly?  Not so much.  Not bad, but in comparison.....)

So when I saw this Pottery Barn Knock-off, I had to make one for myself.

I kept mine more true to the original, found here, but since I never saw the original until I found Lisa's blog, Grey Luster Girl, I am sending a huge thank you her way.  This might be my new favorite decoration.

BTW- I made this on a dollar store plate, and cut the vinyl with my Silhouette (on hand).  I used a full size plate for impact.  I think PB's was a small one, used to hold jewelry or keys.

I think it's time for a Pride and Prejudice rewatch.


  1. I love it! I might just have to make me one of those. Thanks for sharing!

  2. oh i want one!!!!! and swoon at colin firth as mr darcy!!!! that is my all time favourite book and one of my favourite films/programmes.. Check out the bollywood version called bride and prejudice i love it too.

    I've heard that is good, but never have seen it yet. I'll have to check it out. Glad you like the plate!

  4. Which Dollar Store ? I have been hunting for a white plate, to no avail.

  5. @xocheeta
    I got mine at the Dollar Tree. I've also seen cheap white plates displayed at Walmart or TJ Maxx. Cost Plus World Market also has them, but they cost more- 4 or 5 dollars each.

  6. Valerie, I love this quote and your plate! P & P is my all time fav! However Persuasion runs a close second! BBC rocks!

  7. I love Pride & Prejudice too! And your plate is too cute - isn't the Silhouette awesome!?

  8. OMG I LOVE THIS. And yes I just yelled that. FAVORITE MOVIE EVER. can't stop yelling!!!
