Spates of Plates

For my birthday, Rami got me the sweetest vintage plate.  Some of you may not think that a plate is the most romantic birthday gift, but let me tell you, I am over the moon about my plate.  It is lovely, black and white, and I happen to know it cost a pretty penny at one of the swanky antique stores on South Congress here in Austin.

I had seen it when we were out shopping with friends about a month before my birthday.  I fawned all over it in the store. But I didn’t want to splurge on a plate– it just wasn’t practical, no matter how lovely the plate.  Luckily, Rami made a mental note and went back the next day and bought it for me.  Here’s another picture:

So ever since my birthday I’ve been a little obsessed with plates.  I have a big blank wall in my dining room, just begging for a slew of chic vintage plates to swank it up a bit.  Here are some wonderful treasures I’ve found on the internet.
