I thought I'd share a particular collection that I've been accumulating for several years now. It has starred in a white beaded board bathroom, an apple green playroom and now a soft golden laundry room. It's my blue and white state plate collection. And by *state plate* I don't mean vehicle license plates that are blue and white, as one friend thought when I told her about them:) They are souvenir plates that are relatively inexpensive (usually $3 to $8 or so, although I have paid a little less or a little more) as most have no markings on the backs. I have plates from sixteen different states with several more plates that are from specific American historic sites. I've also mixed in a few other patriotic prints that I love, just for fun. I have so much fun when I score one at an antique shop or mall. They're getting harder for me to find, it seems, but that makes the victory of finding one even more enjoyable!
