Wild Roses and Bluebirds

It's been one of those days where you run around all day and feel like you get nothing accomplished so my White Wednesday post is a quick and easy one today.

I like heavy plates with pretty designs. I found this at a flea market for $2.00. I like it because it's a little rough, crazed and aged. I think the flowers are beautiful.

I found this at a sale and again it's pretty well worn but I just love Bluebirds and decided it needed a home.

This plate sits on the bathroom vanity holding a couple of ring holders and odd things.

Thanks for stopping!

I'm linking to Faded Charm for White Wednesday.

Love your finds and I would have brought them home, too. The bluebirds are a very old pattern and hard to find.
Lucky you!

Lovely finds. I agree, the flowers on the first plate are exquisite.

I like the first one with flowers and esp the edge on it. Flea market is always a good place to hunt for goodies, how i hope we have it here. Happy Wednesday! :)

Don't you just love picking up something for a couple of dollars? Who cares if it is not perfect, we seem to see the beauty in them!

I can never resist these either -I have a whole pile of them but never have a use for them-yours are very pretty and I love the old look!

Those are such nice plates. I love the floral ones shape and crazing and the bluebird one is a hard pattern to find..I have a small bowl from that pattern.
