SPRING TIME PLATES

March 1st and I am ready to bring a little springtime to my dining room.  I have a large plate rack on the wall and I change the plates for holidays and the seasons.

All of these plates were found at thrift shops or yard sales and were singles
and all under $1
I love this plate from Johnson Bros
I don't think it's vintage at all and wish I could find more of this pattern

This plate is vintage and is a Homer Laughlin Eggshell Nautilus plate in the Apple Blossom Pattern 
(and is listed in my ETSY shop)

 This plate is hand painted with no makers mark, but so cute!

I love the pattern on this Poppytrail Metlox plate
Vintage Pink

So there you have my favorite way to display those charming plates that are a onesy in your collection.
I'm joining Linda at Coastal Charm for
 
She is having a Birthday party for her party! 

Happy Junkin,
Linda

Very pretty - just ready for Easter. Or indeed St David's day, as it is here today! Supposed to herald the start of Spring, but it feels pretty Arctic.

Oh my goodness! That Homer Laughlin Eggshell Nautilus plate is my favorite of the four - - - SOOOOOOO delicate!

Do you remember my post that told the story of my mom's "Indian Tree" china? That was Johnson Bros too!

Diann said...

Oooh, all four plates are just so pretty!!

Susan said...

That's great display idea, Linda. Of course, two racks would be even better than one! ha! Of your plates, the apple blossom one is my fave. All are pretty, though! Great job. susan

Oh, I am SO right there with you on being ready for spring! I love that all your plates were such thrifty buys and they look great!

I wanted to let you know that I finally motivated myself to clean out my basement (I was the one who commented about throwing the grenade down there and closing the door!) I blogged about it if you have time for a visit:

A very pretty collection and it spells Spring. I was out and about today and could not believe how many trees were already in bloom. Hope we don't have a major freeze again and lose them.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Linda, you have some spring beauties there. I love the vintage pink one.

Marigene said...

They do speak of spring, Linda!

Donnie said...

That's a great plate rack. You plates look good there.

I think that's a great way to display onesies. Linda can I ask where you found your plate display? I've never seen on like that. And you always score such great deals! My GW charges 99 cents for little poopy plates. Vanna

I like the Poppytrail one, it is so lovely and reminds me of spring time and Easter. It was really pretty here today but after our storms yesterday, we needed the sunshine.

Becky said...

Linda ~ These plates are beautiful!! I think I need a plate rack, now! ;)

Betsy said...

Pink and flowers, what a great combination. Each one is unique, but they look so good grouped together. I'm in a spring mood:)

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Hey Linda...thanks for visiting my blog and your nice comment. I've never met a plate I didn't like...I love them! I love your rack...I have plate rails in 2 of my rooms that are pretty much full. Nice to meet you! ~Ann

You are ready for spring there - and so am I - great weather we are having.

I like all your spring plates and can't decide which one is my favorite.

They are all pretty and delicate.

Hi Linda Sweetie...
Love the share this evening. Just beautiful. Spring is truly displayed over here, and it's just around the corner. I don't think it can come fast enough for us though. So tired of the cold.

Love your plate rack. That is just wonderful and how fun it can be seasonal. Thanks for sharing sweetie. I so love it when you do.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Isn't it fun to change out things (especially dishes) for the season? You have some great single plates and I love how you show them off. Yes a little bit of spring right now is exciting.

Great idea to change the plates for each season, Linda, and those pretty pastels look beautiful for your Spring decor. laurie
