Vintage Pink Plate Plaque

I sometimes find the sweetest treasures
 while out and about thrifting and hitting antique shoppes.

This sweet plate is no exception.

I love its patches of dark pink with its fancy scalloped
holed edges with gilding.

I'm not one to ever really hang plates on a wall
 so she has been used on occassion along with a paper doily
 to serve petite fours and mini cupcakes in the past
 when having a friend or two over for a little tea social visit.

(But right now she is making a really pretty candle holder!)

I love this silk floral candle ring,
even the roses look "spent," which makes it so realistic!

And with a little bit of Pic Monkey imagination
it also makes a mighty fine framed piece of artwork!

Don't forget my giveaway this month!

As always, thank you for visiting!

  14. Lovely little plate and it looks so pretty with your candle arrangement. You certainly have found a multitude of uses for it.
    I haven't been thrifting much as I need absolutely nothing. I do miss it though. Too busy and too cold to do yard sales yet.

  15. Such a darling plate with a cute saying. I go to more Estate sales these days than thrift stores.Always fun.

  16. That's one pretty plate. I'm always on the lookout for plates like that when i'm out thrifting.

  17. I love it when we use china for a multitude of purposes, as you so clearly do! And I can see I need to become acquainted with Picmonkey. You really do some fun things with your photos on here, Michele. Thanks for the inspiration!
