The Blessing Plate - An African-American Family Heirloom Plate
Terré Holmes, the Founder of Lillie & Eve wrote the Blessing Plate poem as she sat at her late grandmother's dining room table in the wee hours of the morning. She was recently divorced, completely broke and broken and wanted to create a product to inspire others and support herself as she began her healing journey financially, emotionally, and spiritually.
At 2AM she began penning the poem, The Blessing Plate and by 2:30AM it was complete. She shouted for joy, knowing that without the divine guidance of God and her late grandmother, Lillie, she could not have done it.
HOW IT WORKS
The plate is a beautiful historical piece, in which the giver signs and dates the plate upon giving it to the receiver. After the plate has been passed down from person to person and signed by each receiver over the years, what is left, is a beautiful piece of hand signed art work.
The plate is passed down as a birthday, house warming, Easter, Christmas, Kwanzaa, or just because gift, as each person signs and dates it upon receipt, until the entire plate is filled with the beautiful handwritten signatures of each family member or friend who has come before them.
Every 6 months, a new plate will be designed and released, with original art work done by an African-American artist. Be sure to get each new design and add it to your collection.
The plate ships from Maryland within 7-10 business days.
