Old plates for show and tell Friday

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage

I love old dishes and plates but never really new how or where to display them

so I found this rack and put my pretty plates on it to display. In the back ground the is a Shabby Chic book opened up to a dishwasher full of beautiful old dishes.

Thank-you for stopping by

Hi Ginger,
How pretty. You know I like pretty plates. We met the kids at Carlos-O'Brien's for dinner tonight and they were going to the Barrett Jackson car show afterwards. We came home to watch the Suns game.

Oh, my gosh, what a FABULOUS idea, Ginger, girl. I am ALWAYS looking for ways to display my old plates, too. And...I have a dish drainer almost, if not JUST, like this one. Where is my head? Why didn't I think of this idea? GOOD GRIEF...let me get around and find that rack and when I get it all fixed, I'll post so you can see!!
Thanks for all your prayers and sweet thoughts....I am doing sooo good.
hugs, bj

Love old plates too--those are so sweet. Nice display--different way to do it. Hey, I think I called you ginnie when talking on Charlotte's blog!!--I woke up in the middle of the night and thought--"Did I write Ginnie instead of Ginger?!" What a thing for me to worry about in the middle of the night--I didn't go back to check either!

Those are such beautiful plates, and the way you displays things is lovely. I really like the rack idea, because you can easily change "plate decor" as you would like to.
