All Set!




I CANNOT resist a "set"...of plates, that is.
Let me rephrase that...a cheap set of plates!
Sure, they aren't perfect, but perfection is highly
over-rated! I mean, just look at those edge
details! A-dorable!





And this set! Sure, the decals could have been cut out
a little better, but HELLO! Just look at the cute shape!





I have never used a butter pat in my life...but that will
never deter me from buying them, especially when they
are as darling as this set!

Remember: "Pretty" doesn't have to be perfect...it just
has to make you purr! {meow ;}


Be sure to stop by Cindy's for more SHOW AND TELL FRIDAY

  1. I agree, there's something about a "set" especially if they are roses, (and cheap) that makes me have to buy them! Really pretty photos!

  2. your dishes are sweet and you're right about the shapes and edges. I sometimes use those tiny ones for teabags...you know, when they come out of a hot cuppa.

  8. Oh.....beautiful!!!! I wouldn't be able to resist, either! I collect butter pats, and use them for lots of things. My favorite is to use them on top of my glass of iced tea outside to keep the buggies away!

  9. I can't get enough of china. Roses on anything make me swoon and, like you, I never have used a butter pat. But who cares?

  20. Happy Weekend!! I love all your cute plates. I love anything shabby, or with pink roses though. I am a big fan of lots of mismatched dishes, even if my hubby can't understand it...but he can't figure out why I like to paint everything either. Oh well

  22. Love those rose plates ~ I've got a lot with less than perfect decals, too, but it doesn't bother me at all. And I so love little butter pats. Have you seen the RA framed ones? I've got them hanging in my bedroom.
