Pretty plates...

I snapped these photos last summer of some pretty plates I bought at a great little store that sells vintage goodies, towels, furniture, shabby chic stuff and vintage tablecloths. I LOVE collecting these plates to use every day and can't resist buying them...I have more vintage china and used to have a set (not complete) of the blue and white Italian Spode (I miss it!) and the beautiful Portmeirion Botanical Collection, both of which belonged to Lady Somerset in southern England.  Herewith, some photos -

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this china...

For more information about Italian Spode, go here and for the Portmeirion collection go here -
