Never Enough Plates!

A sweet graphic for you to make a Valentine with or
add to your sidebar!
Love, Me! xo
Just a little idea for a centerpiece. I set a little
flower arrangement on a cake plate and added a
vintage crochet doilie underneath! I am a plate addict! I just love dinner place settings! I have many and will be sharing some now & then. I used the bowl to this setting in my last post with the yummy chicken pot pie. It sure made it taste better!
Do you collect them to? Oh, please say yes!!! Have a wonderful day!

Hi Maryjane! I love plates! Plus, my husband loves plates as well. We are always on the huntdown for beautiful decorative plates.

The doily is so lovely in that star patter.

Thank you for the Valentine Graphic!

finally! Some one as obsessed about plates as me!! :) I must have 8 different sets of plates and I am always buying more. My husband is a bit less enthusiastic, but I know he loves having a nicely set dinner. :)

And, THANK YOU for the pretty Valentine. I will take it home and add it to my sidebar....

Oooooooh, I love plates so much they are falling out of my cupboards. I have 7 fulls sets of china (thanks to my MIL) and tons of singles all over the place that I have collected over the years.
Love yours! so beautiful.
Hope all is well at your home. Janis
PS the security word I need to type is... plated funny huh?

Lavender Dreamer said...

I am trying not to collect right now and get ready to retire! lol But I love the pink plates! If I found one I would be thrilled! Love your centerpiece, too. I get so many great ideas on your blog! Thank you!

Just A Gal... said...

I share your addiction... I always wonder why it isn't enough that I have three sets to have a fourth... and then how in the world am I going to explain it to Hubby... but after 23 years of marriage he just excepts it. LOL
Good to know I am not alone!

Maryjane~
I NEVER have enough plates either. They even cover my walls. I have the great pleasure of being the daughter~in~law to a very generous & very talented china painting artist! Your pictures are just lovely and I look forward to seeing more of your dishes.
How do I add the sweet little graphic to my side bar?

Lady Katherine said...

I love these dishes! Just love them. Your centerpiece is pretty too. But I love those dishes! lol

Sandra~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

I love plates.... The one you have posted is gorgeous. I probably would have to get the pink one as well with my collection. My husand likes plates too, I don't think he cares what they look like, just as long as there filled with food!

Lisa B. said...

That is a beautiful bowl and plate! It's so unique. I'm wondering who made it?

Cathy said...

Maryjane,

Wow, I'm loving those plates! So pretty in pink.

I also LOVE all the beautiful treasures a few posts down. The quilt, and all those beautiful pillows. Just lovely. Great job by the way. Everything looks so snuggly.

Mildred said...

Yes, I am a plate addict too! I love your centerpiece creation. You have a lovely blog.

Jean Tuthill said...

Yes, I do love plates, but I don't have room for a lot of them. I have two sets of dishes and many other separate pieces that I have collected over the years. I love your centerpiece. Thanks for the Valentine, it's so cute.

Shirl said...

Hello Maryjane, Thank you so much for the pretty vintage valentine. I love it and will use it! Your centerpiece is so pretty! What a clever idea. Your dishes are adorable and yes I collect them too. I just got started on collecting vintage jadeite and gave alot of my dishes to my daughter Jen. Your chicken pot pie looks yummy and I did print that out from Cherry Hill COttage too. I can't wait to try it. I love her blog!
Thanks for sharing! Shirl

Lorilee said...

Hi Maryjane,
I adore dishes of all sorts! I just wish I had more room. I think a "butlers pantry" would be a dream come true! I would love a small closet just for hanging tablecloths!
Blessings,
Lorile

Deb said...

Maryjane,

I love the pink with pearls! I love bowls and plates. I actually saw a vintage set today that I would love to have, but was out of my price range, they were white with red polka dots. Love your sight.

TattingChic said...

What a lovely plate! Just beautiful! I love the pink with the little "dots". I'd LOVE a set of plates like that. I get cookie plates...at least that is what I call them to justify my mismatched plate purchases, LOL! :)

Marilyn said...

Oh Maryjane you would not believe how many dinner sets I have...lol..I dare not count them... and a lovely friend of my daughter gave me a new one for my birthday..its so pretty.. mint green with tiny pink roses... can't wait to use it.. hmm... that means another dinner party..YES!! Marilyn

Kathleen from Yesteryear Embroideries and Eggs In My Pocket said...

Just love the lovely card and plates and centerpiece. I also love plates! I like to mix and match sometimes. I have a household of all men/boys...no one notices, but I stil love dishes anyway! blessings,Kathleen

C. C. said...

I do love plates and bowls, too! I have gotten just a few sets just because I feel guilty, but I would have more if I would only allow myself! I also have my grandmothers china and that is all in the china hutch so I can look at it all the time!

I am glad you have those pink one's with the pearls! What a lucky girl you are!

Claudia said...

Maryjane,

I love your blog! The plates are beautiful. I feel the same way. My grandmother always had plates hanging on her walls and that is such a wonderful memory.

Stop by my blog and pick up your award.

Lee Laurie said...

Oh My goodness! Those plates are beautiful! I'm addicted to collecting dishes! I've neer seen these before. Who makes them!? I love to change dishes with the foods that I serve. It makes it feel more special! I'm glad to see that there are other ladies out there like me!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh My Goodness! Those plates are SO pretty! I love them, and yes, I also collect plates (even though I am out of room to store plates)--I just can't seem to stop myself. Maybe we should start a "Plates Anonymous" group. laurie

Joy said...

Oh I love the centerpiece and the pretty pink plate too.

Patti Cakes said...

What beautiful plates those are. Love the pearls.
