Decorating with old Plates

Years ago, I saw this photo in a popular home magazine and loved it! The plate  lined flower bed created a cottage feel that was very inviting. I blogged about it here 7 years ago...



Sadly I forgot about it until recently when Penny over at Penny's Vintage Home posted these photos. She made a collection of flowers and plates in an old enameled wash basin!



Here she added a cup and some small figurines...


So this is my version:



And I've been a cup and plate collector for a long time so I don't know why I didn't do this years ago!!

Here's where I'll be sharing:

  4. I also saw photos of old plates in gardens some years ago and wanted to do something similar. I never did. You have now inspired me to rethink my garden. Thanks!
