For weeks now I have been cultivating my obsession with pewter plates. I think it started when I saw this photo from Better Home and Gardens...
I know some of these are vintage pie tins, but how pretty are those pewter plates? The truly worn down and well loved pewter plates are harder to find and usually start at $45 dollars a plate which I would truly never be able to afford.
Mr.Major and I were going for a drive yesterday when we came across an old barn that had been converted into a little antique store. As soon as I walked through the door I was in heaven! Big antique doors with chippy paint, old ornate ceiling tiles, and oh the furniture! (More on that tomorrow) but-- imagine my excitement when I came across a small stack of pewter plates for sale.
Needless to say I snatched them up and for less than $20 dollars I have my very own small set of pewter plates. I am one happy girl.
