Vintage Plates - from The Heart




Lately I have been drawn to vintage plates that have been monogrammed or messaged in some way. I picked up the ones shown today at various thrift stores {for a few dollars each}.
In a world where sometimes it feels like no-one has time to think about or thank their loved ones, I adore the thought of these beautiful plates which would have been given to such important people in our lives. Let's hope this inspires us all to remember the special people who surround us.

  14. I keep saying this but you are so lucky with your thrift stores. All the op-shops in our area charge a fortune! That's why I tend to shop on Etsy. xx

  17. These are so sweet Simone:) I love the fact that they were given to someone who was very much loved as a Mother...I have a couple that were my Grandmother's and I know that she loved them.
