I wondered today about these little plates.
I got them all out to make sure I had enough for our fundraising afternoon tea on the 4th December
Then I got to wondering what other people call them
When I was growing up, we called them tea plates.
I have heard them called so many different things over the years,
including,side plates,bread and butter plates and cake plates
I love them all,and like all my china, I can't seem to stop buying them.
When I see them in the op shops or at markets or in second hand shops, I just can't leave them there, if the price is right. Usually they cost only a few dollars
Even my daughter picks them up for me whenever she sees them.
Sometimes I get really lucky and have found cups and saucers to match to make a trio
Have you an obsession about something like this,and what do you call them. I would really like to know.
Now I think I have plenty for the afternoon tea, as I just opened another cupboard and found another pile after I photographed the above group.
Well never mind next time. xxx
