I found this old plate and for some reason I just fell in love. I wouldn't dare put food on it but something in my creative soul said that's cool! I can't image how something could have so many age cracks and still have such a nice shiny surface, the textures and the aging are second to none. I imagine I will make some PS stamps with the images of the textures and the plate itself is destined to be a piece of art, although I haven't figured out exactly what I will do with it yet. I'm still considering.
I adore the faded colorful flowers on it, and I imagine it was very beautiful all shiny, white and new with that splash of floral color. But it's age gives it some beauty as well and maybe that is why I love it. Who knows???
I also found some tin types to put into good artistic use.
Thanks for visiting, and please if you think I'm nuts for loving that old plate, feel free to comment. Goodness knows I've heard it already, LOL.
