I am seriously in love with plates at the moment and I have been slowly trying to find some pretty plates to display in our home. I have finally found enough to hang on a wall and I can't wait to show you my collection!
But, before I show you my teeny tiny collection I would love to show you some of the pictures I have found over the last few months that inspired me to start collecting plates....
Aren't these collections so beautifully displayed!
Now, I only have a small little patch of wall to hang my plates so I originally thought that I should simply hang them in a row like this.
But then I decided that I like this display a little more as it seemed to be more fluid and would allow me the freedom to add more plates as I found them.
So here is my before picture.
And here is my after picture.
I have seen a few bloggers have used these before so I also used these great adhesive plate hangers for the two little bitty plates.
stick it on, wait for 24 hours and then voila-instant plate hanger!
The Scottish inspired plate is a J &G Meakin Prince Charlie Cake Plate. It used to belong to Mr Attorney's grandmother. The little tiny floral plate was found at a garage sale and cost me 20 cents!
My favourite plate is the chintzy Royal Winton Welbeck pattern. Mr Attorney gave this to me for my birthday last year. It is a vintage piece and was about $50 from an Antique market. The Royal Grafton Malvern Eared Cake Plate is also beautiful and came with a cute cake server.
I am so happy with my plate display and I can't wait to add a few more to my collection!
Thank you to my Dad for helping me put them up! Big Al is obviously in deep admiration of your plate-hanging skills!
Best wishes for a beautiful week,
Please join me each weekend for the Say G'day Saturday Linky Party!
