Gold Rimmed Plates for St. Patty's Day


St. Patrick's day will be here soon so I thought I would do a little decorating for it.  After all, my favorite color is green. And gold!
Recently I volunteered at a Church rummage sale and went away with a few treasures that are perfect for this post.
I bought a set of 6 Limoges dinner plates for $5! 2 have small chips but pretend that you don't know that.


The tatted green striped towel belonged to my Great Auntie, as did the white fringe piece. If you look closely, it has 4 leaf clovers made into it. On top of the plates is a small handpainted something or another, not sure if it is just a wall hanging piece or a coaster? But anyway I liked it just the same, especially for 10 cents!


Here is a closer view of it, along with the green art glass enameled water tumblers that I have shown before.


I added some glitter shamrocks to St. Pattify it a bit. Not sure if that is a word! lol



I also got this cute little leprechaun baby felt ornament for 10 cents at the Church sale. I thought he, or she, would be perfect in this little boullion cup filled with gold, to represent the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!




It's not very fancy, but here is the table set with the plates. It looks a little boring so that is why I saved this photo til the end! :)



Recently I purchased this tea cup at a resale shop for $3. I thought it would be nice for the occasion. It is made in Staffordshire, England By Royal Kendal. I don't believe it is anything too spectacular but I like Lily of the Valley. I have a bed of these that bloom in early Summer and they are so fragrant!



There's even a little sprig on the inside of the cup! How cute, right?

  1. Dear Gina:
    Looks like some really fun treasures. Those plates are lovely. I think your Lily of the Valley Cup and Saucer is real sweet too! Time is clicking down for us and we are so ready for Missouri. My husband is so tired of working here painting and staining. Our carpet was done on Monday and next Monday the granite counters. Time fly - please!

  8. Gina, I don't think your table is boring at all. I do love green as it's a favourite colour of mine as well. Your plates are so pretty and the little wall hanging is very sweet. Love the teacup! Love lily-of-the valley too. It's May's flower and I would like to find one because my hubby's birthday is in May. You did well with your finds and thank you for sharing them with us. Hope your day is lovely!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  12. Dear Gina:
    What a beautiful table and I love having fun decorating for the seasons and holidays Gina. Your my kinda girl. We had the carpet done last week and the granite counters installed today. We have worked very hard cleaning up many messes over and over. Appreciate prayer for Keith as he is limping around after staining all the woodwork on his knees. We getting closer - planning to leave on the 17th!
