Pink Roses on China Delight the Eyes for Show and Tell Friday



If a dream of owning an upscale actual or online what-not shop ever came true, there'd be an entire wall filled with rose-covered china.

There's just something so appealing about roses on china.  No matter how many platters and cups one acquires, there always seems to be room for just one more.

It seems that roses are synonymous with a romantic look.  Even if one's taste in decorating a home  is modern, a vase filled with roses still has great appeal.

The attractive plate shown today is a new  purchase.  It looks old-fashioned, like something someone's grandmother would have on the dining room table at dinnertime. 

There are no markings on it so it might not be worth much, in terms of value, but it's very nice to look at.

When asked the price and was told, "One dollar,"  it became irresistable.  It was actually found in the dollar section of an antiques and used furniture store.

(Be sure to go to Cindy's blog, My Romantic Home to see other Show and Tell Friday offerings.  Her grab button is in the sidebar. Just click it and you will be transported to Cindy's very appealing blog!)
Now, back to dreaming about that shop....

DO YOU ENJOY GOING INTO USED TRINKET SHOPS DESPITE THE BAD ECONOMY?

That is a gorgeous plate. And it was a great deal. And I agree it is romantic. Do you set up your table every night for dinner? sandie

I love used trinket shops and can't imagine paying full price for things right now.

I'm a dishaholic. They are indeed romantic and so beautiful. My mom has Old Country Roses. They're total perfection.

Oh, Susan! The colors are fantastic!
I love roses plates, too!
I have put a few in my guest room--I have found all mine at thrift stores or garage sales.
You and I don't mind if they don't have a pedigree, do we?
We think they look like a million bucks!
Hugs, sweet lady!

Such a pretty plate - I'd have bought it, too! Our booth is in The Antique Gallery (there's a link on my blog). It's a large beautiful antique mall with over 100 dealers - hard to have a booth there and not shop too! :) Nancy

The $1 price does make the plate irresistable but the plate is irresistable all on it's own.

Thank YOU for your visit, sweetpea!

That plate is gorgeous. I collect plates but I may have to get rid of some of them. I have waaaaay too many for this house and I doubt I'll get anymore since I'm trying my best to scale down.

xoxo,
Connie

Dear Susan,
Thanks for stopping by, and for your kind message.

I found your blog thanks to our dear friend Terri. She is truly an inspiration.

I love your plate, and I was so amazed when you said it was just a buck! I feel that visiting antique shops and flea markets is like going treasure hunting. Wouldn't be interesting to have a post about "treasures" people have found at these shops? :-))

Blessings.
Doris

Your plate is lovely. I search for vintage romantic plates like yours and am using them as a border edege around the garden in my front yard - it gives a nice romantic look.
