At book club we are reading a series of novels based around collections. It got me thinking, what do I collect? I started looking around the house, how could I miss my collection of plates (Granny Plates as Emma from Silverpebble once called them back in 2005, the name stuck...)
I've collected these Granny Plates for over fifteen years now. There are only three rules for my collection; each plate must cost no more than £3 (preferably much less), it must not be new & it must be beautiful (beautiful to me that is...).
Before I hung them, we agreed that I would put only twenty up. I have sneaked a few extras in, there are now twenty-three plates.
I tell myself that not only are they beautiful but if we're short of a plate or two or twenty-three we could always take some off the wall...
