Plate Love: Hanging Plates on the Wall

G'Day friends! Welcome to Natasha in Oz! Thanks so much for stopping by and spending time in my little corner of the world Down Under.

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.

As I said, I only have a tiny collection but I had to start somewhere, right!

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.

You just wet one side of the hanger, wait for it to get tacky,

stick it on, wait for 24 hours and then voila-instant plate hanger!

Here are some close-ups of my plates.
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!

I am linking to a few Monday linky parties today:
