Greenery!

I have loved these green leaf plates forever! They never date, I know this personally because I have loved them since childhood! However, I am yet to collect some of my own.


After seeing this gorgeous spread by Carolyn Roehm in Veranda Magazine I think it's time to start my collection! Tracey xx

I do have a few antique majolica plates that are hanging up in the cabin, they add so much color to the space and you are right...they are timeless.

My Nanna had some in a glass front display unit, I was always so interested in them with their vibrant green and unusual shape! I never saw them being used, but they look so lovely set on a table, that I am thinking I should find them and put them to use!

I agree, they look amazing and so tropical and fresh. Dust them of Tracey and starting using!

I love them too! Everytime I go into Pigott's Store I'm tempted to buy some but then commonsense takes over and I stick with all white - I wonder why? Leigh

The plates are so beautiful! They remind me of the stores of Vallauris in France where I saw so many of these beauties!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I remember my mother had a set like these. I wonder if she still has them? I may need to "borrow" them . . . ;)

I LOVE this!! What fantastic plates. I love a little quirk and personality on a table, and you have illustrated this with perfection!
