Decorating with Plates

I love plates!  Vintage plates are my weakness!  I will buy one of a kind at the thrifts if they 'speak' to me.  But what to do with these...a plate rack is perfect!  You can show plates by color, theme or whatever is pleasing to your eye! 
In January I choose 4 plates of the same pattern
but for February I'm doing a month of Pink
So here is my plate rack now
I have chosen 4 plates with Pink in them
These top two are from a set of dishes by Vernon Ware called "Tickled Pink"
This is a restaurant ware plate from Syracuse USA
I have found a couple of other pieces in this pattern also

This restaurant ware plate is also made by Syracuse China.  I love the Pink on this plate!

I'm joining Suzanne for

Oh I love plates too! The pink ones are very pretty and I like the style of that plate rack. I need to keep my eyes peeled for one of those - thanks for sharing! Makes me feel better about my collection - LOL!

thank goodness for blogland...I finally found other women who adore plates the way I do. I have so many of just 2 or 3 and my daughter is always shaking her head at me...she obviously missed that gene. Love those pretty pinks!

I love to decorate with plates, especially my collection of blue and white ones. I like your plate holders and the fact that you can switch your plates around seasonally or just for fun.

Great Idea with the plate rack. I like all of them, it would be hard to put them away. Do you ever set your table with these?

Gina said...

A plate rack is a great idea! I love your pretty pink plates. It makes me giggle to see Syracuse China in places other than here. I always thought of it as being local only.

Jill said...

There are so many plates to pick from - it must be hard to decide what to bring home.... Your plate pics are always nice...

You have a great assortment of plates. I love the way you are displaying them.

Hi Linda! I love all you plates, but I am partial to those pine plates....

I love the idea of changing them out! Love the pink, and I thought for sure the top rt one was vintage! Vera Wang?

Bliss said...

Great idea to change them up. That way you get to look at them all not just 4 all year. (Of course I want to smash them.....)

Suzanne said...

...and such beautiful plates you own, dear Linda! As always, thanks for sharing your pretties!

Chatty Crone said...

I love those plates too - you really can decorate with them. Where in the world do you get plate racks? sandie

Sue said...

Those plates are perfect for February!

Ann said...

I only have 2 sets of plates that I put in the rack I have. I think I need to get some new ones :)
I have a friend who would love those plates in the first picture.

Nani said...

I love the idea of a plate display that changes every month! The February plates are just beautiful!

I love the idea of changing styles every month! I'm the same way about only getting things that "speak" to me. It's enjoyable for me to find that ONE thing that seems to just grab your heart and holds on!

I have many plates on the wall. Love the rack too.
