Hanging Plates and Mirrors

My mother in law...or as the kids refer to her...Pie always says I am easy to please, just give me a plate and I am happy.  There has probably never been a more true statement, I adore plates and I especially like them hanging on a wall.  For sometime I've had an assortment of blue and white dishes hung over a side table in the dining room.  When I would take a step back it looked as if they "needed" something else hung with them. This week I decided to shop the house for a few unrelated items and then I saw a mirror I had picked up in the Fall. It occurred to me that this mirror might be just what I needed.   I am delighted with the outcome.

 This side table has been with us since the Oklahoma house and is a fav piece.  My collection of decanters along with a piece of Staffordshire, lamp and lion's head pot completes this vignette.

  1. I want to see a close up of that mirror! It looks gorgeous and so interesting. I love blue and white dishes too. I have a set that were my grandmothers and I love them. Kathy

  2. Your table is so pretty, and I am a sucker for dishes, too. My mom's blue and white are my fave. I didn't realize (or maybe I just forgot) that you had lived in Oklahoma. We were there for about 7 years, both our kids are Okies.

  3. Oh, this is just lovely and I see your pretty Staffy piece!
    Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,

  4. What a lovely picture you have created. I love your plate and mirror arrangement, as well as the vignette on your table. And , by the way, what is the history for that exquisite table? I've never seen anything like it before. Just beautiful...thank you for sharing. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
