I have been admiring these vintage plates since many years ago. It was started out from my first time visit to the US. I think it was in 1983. During each trip, I used to stop when driving through a small town at a rural area of the US; bought a view plates and wrapped the plates in my clothing and placed them in the suitcase so I can take them home.
These plates are my very reason purchases during our last trip to Delray, Florida. I love the soft beautiful colors and flowers printed on the plates in the middle or on the side. It is very feminine, soft and elegance.
I also developed the love of photography. And with my new Nikon D3100 my husband 'Steven' gave me last Christmas; I am now learning on how to be creative when taking pictures with this wonderful camera. Although I am still learning; I am very happy with the simple "Auto" mode result from this camera. I am planning to learn more on how to use the camera 'manually' so I can be artistic with the result. Right now I am reading this wonderful book "Plate to Pixel - Digital Food Photography & Styling" by Helene Dujardin (available here). After reading it a few pages I already love the content of the book very much!
Here are the pictures of those lovely plates, a tea cup and the macarons I made recently.
I hope you like the pictures and the story above ! Thank you for reading......
