The Start of Hanging Plates


SNS at Funky Junk Interiors is having a theme party called ~Decorating with Plates~ and since I’ve started to decorate with plates around my bookcase yesterday I thought I’d join in the fun!
The first plate I found was at a church sale and the 2nd is from TJMaxx on clearance for $2.00, I loved the black and white of it. The third one is an old platter that I think I found at the fleamarket a while ago.

I found the one below at the antique store for $1.99 in N.C. I loved the green pattern and the maker is Homer Laughlin and the name of the pattern is Pastoral.

I finally feel like decorating again, the tests came back negative thank God and you for yours prayers and good thoughts, they were the longest 7 days!

I almost forgot to show you the other treasure I found at the antique store, isn’t it neat? I’m thinking on painting it, I have saved a picture of one on Pinterest and plan on doing it soon.

Now for my first find at a yardsale this year, of course it was in N.C. but that’s okay the day was sunny but a little chilly but was so much fun to get out of the car and see “stuff”! I only paid a $1.00 but I just thought it was neat with the little lip on the rim to pour with.

Love the antique plate, it is so pretty. I love the look of plates on the wall, but I don't have a place to do that:( I will have to enjoy all the other bloggers!

Be careful, decorating with plates is addictive. LOL! I love the one with the scene. I will have to go check out his party. I bet it will be filled with all sorts of wonderful inspiration like yours. Have a great day!

Still loving the turquoise suitcase-I am so thrilled for you for your negative results. One of the few times a negative is a positive! Congrats
