Vintage Thingie Thursday - Vintage China Plates

It's Vintage Thingie Thursday today hosted by Suzanne at Colorado Lady.

I love to collect vintage plates and display them. Some might say I am a plateaholic! I have bought most of my plates on ebay. I hate paying the postage so a lot of times I buy multiply ones from one seller and combine shipping.

Not only do I like to display them, I also break them and let's just say, rearrange them before I displaying them again? Like in this picture!

Here's a table and birdhouse I broke the vintage china plates and I mosaic them back on

Don't forget to visit Suzanne at ColoradoLady Blog and check out other Vintage Thingie Thursday posts!

I have a serious plate addiction too. Sad but true! Love all yours. Your garden is beautiful. I miss California in the winter. Everything is green and even blooming. Here in Utah not. Mimi

Very nice displays...I tried to enlarge the picture of the mosiac one but it wouldn't enlarge. I love what you've done with that one!

Plates are so great to decorate with as they add splashes of color in small places and they are inexpensive. I've thought about collecting them, but my husband would shoot me if I collected one more thing! Love the mosaics.

Susan said...

So Anne Fannie: how did you do that picture with the broken dishes? And the little plant stand too? Inquiring minds want to know. I LOVE YOUR DISHES, and your display technique is very creative. Thanks for sharing. Jeanne

Hi Mrs. Annie Fannie-
Thanks for leaving me a comment. I just love your Victorian home...sooo beautiful! And that mosaic tray table is just adorable...and your blog, anything that has gardening ideas is tops in my book, especially springtime is coming. Plus you're a fellow Southern Californian, so I'll definitely be one of your follower, and will add you to my favorites!

Lovely plates and display...great that you "redecorate" with any broken ones!

farmlady said...

I love the mosaics but how can you break the plates. I would find that really difficult.
All the plates are just beautiful! I love the way you've displayed them.
Very nice post.

You do beautiful mosiac work. I like everything I have seen so far.
