Plate Friday


I read about this idea on Weaver of Grass! Elizabeth from About New York originally came up with the idea of sharing our favourite plates. This is my favourite plate! We have dinner plates, side plates, mugs and cereal bowls all with this design. I really like the design because it is simple and contemporary and includes the natural world in the form of the leaf. I also love this crockery set because I bought it from the second hand shop across the road from where I live! Most second hand crockery tends not to be this appealing, so I think we were very lucky!

Yes, a perfect blend of all that is good.
Wonderful color.
Simplicity
natural motif.
I'm envious.
Came to you via Weaver.
Have added you to my list.
Hope that is OK?

That is a find! The plates we bought new aren't as interesting as that…

I love the simplicity and the shade of blue. This is a fun mini-carnival, isn't it?

Love the color of this plate and it's simple leaf design. Glad you were able to find something you liked so well. Have a nice day.

I like the simplicity of it Juliet - and the lovely blue. How do you fancy joining in "Mug Monday" (acornmoon's suggestion) the date I suggest is Monday June 22nd - I think it would be nice if we could show the mugs in a table setting too.

Oh, it's beautiful! Just the kind I would want for myself, too.

What a find. I often wonder what it would be like to have a matching crockery set....

Gorgeous blue! I can see why you snapped it up. I'm a fiend for second hand.

Being a guy, it's what's on the plate that helps me decide if it is a favorite or not!

Gorgeous shade of blue! And there's something so satisfying about buying second hand

This reminds me of Cornish Ware, I like the simplicity of the design. I can imagine using this plate every day.

Thank you for visiting and seeing my plates.

I do like that blue and its clear design. Elizabeth had a fine idea to call upon all the china fans.

Best wishes.

Hello Crafty,

Thanks for visiting. Not so very far to come, was it?!

As I like all things blue, your plate is immediately attractive; great that you found it secondhand.

Lovely plate. I like the leaf imprint on the side.

I love your banner with the flowers and the butterfly.
