RETICULATED???!!!! I BEG YOUR PARDON!

Sounds like a naughty word or at least an
insult, huh?? :)

The actual definition is as follows:
Etymology:back-formation from reticulated,
adjective, reticulate
Date:circa 1728
transitive verb : to divide, mark, or construct
so as to form a network
The translation of that is :
cute little cut outs along the rim of a plate
that make you say "aaahhh" and then need
to buy it! So, I thought I'd show you a few
of my reticulated plates....



Sober little squares on sea foam green....





These look like little smiles!



Hearts!!! Too cute!



YUM! I love this plate!!!





Loopy loops on blue....



Even Christmas can be reticulated!!!!!

for this fabulous award!



She recently moved in to the cutest place and
is sharing her decorating progress, step by step!
