crazy plate lady.
As a kid, I remember one of my friends had a huge porcelain doll collection. So I started collecting them. Until my grandparents caught on and that’s all I started getting for every Christmas and birthday. Another friend had the ENTIRE beanie baby collection. So I got some, actually played with them, and damaged the tags. Which is a big no-no apparently. There was also Polly Pocket, Pogs, and Pokemon somewhere in there. I jumped from trend to trend a lot back then. And as a result, none of those collections were really my own.
But now, I am in real danger of becoming a crazy plate lady. I’ll say it loud and proud: I LOVE PLATES!!!! The past few years or so, I’ve been slowly collecting all different kinds. Small, big, colorful, heart-shaped…anything that catches my attention. Admittedly, most of this impulse-plate-buying occurs at Target. Or thrift shops. But mostly Target. And I love my plate collection so dearly. Then I had the brilliant idea of creating a plate board on Pinterest. And the addiction grew. Here are some of my favorites:
found here (this is actually a set, but i am in love with this singular plate).

irregular shaped plates make my heart skip a beat. found here.
anthro never disappoints. found here.

Is there anything you like to collect? What are some trendy or unique collections you had as a child?
