Just Crazy For Plates

As long as I can remember, I've had a love affair with dinnerware and especially plates.

Well....a few weeks ago I found out about this great Sunday Sale at a local church. This past Sunday I found these treasures!

These plates have a handmade quality to them and the most gorgeous shades of autumn that I love.

Get this.....a set of 6 of them was taped up and makred $3.00!

The best part?

I think they work really well as a mix and match with my square plates that I already have...

Check it out.

And now for these special plates...

There were 9 of these taped up for $5!

There were absolutely no chips or crazing on these at all.

What I love about these is that I can put them over my fun art placemats and the designs can show through. Like my chandeliers with the birds...

or this great teacup art I'm about to put on some placemats for my shop today...

So...for the price of a couple of non-fat lattes, I now have 15 new plates that will bring a smile to my face every time I use them.

Frugal, and oh so much fun!



  1. FAB design through glass plates!!! LOVE it!

  2. Hi Cori...

    Ohhh...I love your new plates and you got quite the deal on them as well! The pretty light green plates look fabulous with the square plates...don't you just love when that happens! Hehe! The clear plates are you said, to use your pretty placemats underneath! By the way, I love that pretty chandelier placemat...gorgeous!!! I'm with you, my friend...I love dishes! I'm sure that I have way too many...but whose counting! Hehe!

    Just wanted to thank you for stopping in for a visit and taking a peek at my "Springtime" table and for leaving me such a sweet note! Thank you, Darlin'!!!

    Warmest wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

  3. Cori...I am so jealous! I love those plates, I have one that I found years ago at a second hand store and have never been able to find more to go with it, needless to say if you ever want to part with them drop me a line!

  4. Such great plate bargains. I love your silver ware too!
    Have a great weekend.
