around the house-

I found these gorgeous blue + white saucers in my sisters 'garage sale ' box at my mom and dad's. I brought them home. I was thinking a little plate wall, or leave them stacked right where they are-


And I have my house filled with my favorite thing, lily of the valley-





I'm back to work today after a lovely weekend filled with friends and family. I'm feeling pretty blessed :)

Gorgeous plates! I like them just as they are and then when you need a change you could hang them up. xx

Cute plates! My Mum and Dad had a blue and white plate wall and it was tremendous. They've only recently pulled it all down because they renovated. I want to start a plate wall at my place.

I love those little blue and white saucers. They look cute just piled the way you have them but would also look cute on the wall. Or used as a soap dish or catch-all at the entrance for keys. Or even one as a spoon-rest near your cooktop! They're definitely too pretty to hide in a cupboard : )
