I've been collecting enamelware for awhile now. We hunt for these for our shop (you can view what's available for sale here), and we sometimes end up purchasing some for our own collection. There's just something charming about these metal plates, dented and dinged up they may be.
We've already been displaying some of these plate in the kitchen. Some grace the top of the doorway, while, some brighten up our kitchen counter. But I still had many sitting in cold storage, so I dug them out some time ago and sorted through them.
I particularly wanted to display my three favourite plates, which all had birds in them. Two of these were scored from the thieves market overseas (didn't come cheap though!). After trying out many combinations, we finally settled for this, and hubby helped me to stick them up (while grumbling that I was just crazy to collect these plates). Now these brighten up our entryway, and I love the colours that greet us when we enter the home!
