“i’ve been a loyal mixed plate reader since the beginning and can always count on liana to find the coolest things. her features and advertisers are always top notch, i don’t know how she finds this stuff! i’d been looking for some ‘bling’ for my eerily-empty walls for some time now, but could never find the perfect pieces. until liana came along…because of her i’ve found some fabulous prints and artwork for my place! thanks liana!!”

naked walls no more

“i always get great results from your blog and plus i love supporting blogs that i love to read myself.”
