Side plates.

Years ago I hardly had any side plates with three teenagers and all their friends it was difficult to keep hold of them!!! They were smashed and disappeared under beds etc.....

But now I have lots (surprise, surprise).......
I do have some everyday, modern ,red patterned ones in my cupboard for everyday use or for when I serve men....they sometimes balk at a rosie plate!!!LOL!!
But I now find it impossible not to eat off of a dainty side plate.....
Sandwiches or a slice of cake or an almond macaroon do not taste the same if they are not eaten off of a rose or some goldeness!!!!! x x x x
Hope you like my new banner......my beautiful daughter Poppy(13) created it for me....I must admit i wouldn't have a clue!! Isn't she clever!!!!!!!!


  1. I LOVE your plates! I just posted on my other blog that I share with my sisters that I need some new plates! Yours are divine!!!

    I love your new header too-when did you do that? It is gorgeous.

    Best wishes for a lovely day,
    PS Thanks for your sweet comment :)

  2. thanks you for the comments natasha....i am going to open an etsy shop soon, so you will have to keep ur eyes open if you see any plates you likex
    my daughter did the header...it was the first one she's ever done, she has been playing about today and has already got alot better, she is only 13...i wouldn't have a bloomin clue!!!!

  3. The header is great, you have a very clever daughter with some very handy talents ! Your plates are so pretty, I love using vintage china too and it is cheaper to buy in charity shops and boot sales than buying boring new stuff.
