Passion for Plates Part One! :)

Today I thought I would share some of my favorite plates with you. I have a fetish for plates...... well dishes in general. I'm not sure how many actual sets of dishes I have, but I can assure you, it's more than a "normal" person should have. Then again, I have never been accused of being normal. :-) I just can't seem to turn my back on a beautiful set of dishes, especially if they're pink, floral or a lovely cottagey looking set. (as you can see in my pictures, pink florals are a must to have!) Hope you enjoy looking through my collection! :-) Oh, this is only a few...........I'll post some more later!

I found this marvelous old plate on Ebay!
I love how it's worn.......the older the better, I say!

I scored five of these beauties at a garage sale for $2.00!! Johnson Brothers plates for 2 bucks makes me a happy girl!

I can't remember if I got this one from ebay or my mom...........where did you think I got the passion for plates from?! LOL

This one definitely came from Ebay.. 9 bucks!

This one is just so cottagey (is that a word?!) :)

I got this beauty at my favorite local shop........Peddler's Mall. (all my local friends know what I'm talkin' about!)

That's it for do you share my love for old plates? What's your favorite things?

Hi, I'm from Colorado and saw your snow in an earlier post. It's snowing and blowing here tonight as I stop for a quick visit. I saw your comment on Cindy's blog. Your dishes are pretty and I love all the roses. Thanks for sharing.

My husband lived in Colorado for a short time when he was Longmont. :) We have definitely had our fair share of snow this year, but I actually like snow....just getting spring fever now. :) Thaks for stopping by!

That's the great thing about blogging because you find out you aren't the only one hoarding dishes! I never knew there were so many people out there that liked the same things I do! Your dishes are so beautiful!

I LOVE plates too! I have some brown transfer ware in my foyer on the walls and I currently have my favorite antiques guy "holding" some blue and white plates for my dining room. One of them is a cafeteria plate...they are divided, I especially love those (got one in the foyer!). Yours are GORGEOUS!
