Eric and I hit up a local thrift store where I found and carried about 20 heavy plates before deciding I have no idea how to start a collection. To pacify my craving, I bought this tiny white bowl with little flowers inside to hold my rings.
In keeping with Joy's advice, I'll continue to scour second-hand stores and Anthropologie sales. The plates below ring in at $7.95 a piece. At that price, I may get one of each!
I'm also perusing pinterest for inspiration, as seen below.
I apologize white apartment walls. This collection will be stacked.
They're not for looking at, they're for eating.*
*As opposed to a rock candy reference in a western movie. Can you name the movie and/or the line? I blame my trivial knowledge of this on my husband's admiration for the leading actor and his incessant need to quote the line often and in a goofy voice. He he.
