Oh! And did I ever show you these blossoming beauties?
I picked these up on a visit to my favorite antique mall a few weeks ago… they cost more than I normally like to pay for plates, but they were soooo pretty… and I only bought four of the 8, and when I got home immediately wished I’d bought all eight of them.
Aren’t they beautiful? They would be dessert plates, I think – too small for luncheon plates…
I was NOT going to buy them, at $4 each… but my enabler husband said, “Do they make you happy to look at them?” Of course they do! And he bought them for me… so, maybe I can ease my guilt by saying they were a gift!
