Pretty Plate Wall

I have been collecting antique and vintage china for the last 25 years and I have amassed quite a collection. I use most of my pieces for everyday, the most special pieces are displayed in the china cabinet.

After reading my fabulous birthday gift “Absolutely Beautiful Things” by Anna Spiro, I was inspired to hang some of my collection on the kitchen wall!

I wanted to use the existing hooks as much as possible, so the placement has been a little tricky, and isn’t perfect, but who needs perfect? A home should have flaws…..after all, even the best people are flawed!

Choosing which plates to hang was probably the hardest part!

This is the before…..

I much prefer it now!
And in case you’re wondering, yes my shopping list is currently written in French. I do this occasionally, just so I don’t completely lose my second language! I’ve never been bilingual or fluent, but I have had very good conversational French, but the less I use it the less I remember, so I like to keep my hand in!
