FOR THE LOVE OF PLATES #1


Over my kitchen cupboards I have a display of plates and teapots. I find that soup bowls work well to raise the teapots up a bit and I cover the tops of the cupboards with foil or wax paper to make dusting easier.  (just remove once in a while and redo the paper) The soup bowls do NOT show from down below!

                                          

I have plates in different areas but also....many hanging on the walls........decals, transferware and hand painted.

                                                   


More to come this week....

Hi Bernideen,
I thought I would pop by today and try to leave a comment. Yesterday, I tried several times to leave a comment but I couldn't get it to go. It wasn't just yours, I had trouble with several. Anyway, I'm back and so far, so good! Your linens are lovely and I do appreciate all the care and effort the older generation put into making these lovely heirlooms! Thank you for joining me for Tea Time again. I do appreciate it so much!
I love to see plates and tea pots above the cupboards! I have had birdhouses above mine for several years now. I wished I had thought to line the tops with waxed paper or tin foil as you suggested; makes a cleaning job so much easier! Anyway, I'll know this time around; thank you! Have a beautiful day and thank you for all your lovely photos and tips.

Blessings,
Sandi

HI BERNIDEEN,
YOUR PLATES ARE SO LOVELY. HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY WOULD LOOK AT A TEA PARTY WITH DELICIOUS TEA SANDWICHES, AND SWEETS.
HAVE A NICE DAY, RIZZI

Hello Bernideen
That is a handy tip about lining the top of the cupboard. I enjoyed your plates, nice to see some hanging on the wall too!
