Please tell me that's not another plate wall

Please tell me that you've missed my plate wall posts as much as I have! Ok, ok, I understand if you're not excited, but I held out as long ask I could and now I just have to share...
This circular set up works well with smaller plates surrounding a bigger oval one. The off set place is a nice, quirky touch.
Plates added to an art wall make for an eclectic, interesting mix. Even better when situated over the bed.

Dainty little plates adds to the country charm of this space.

Quite possibly my new favorite plate wall provided by one of my favorite bloggers.

My weekend included non stop work and what feels like a re-injury to my already gimp foot. My Monday will consist of a date with an orthopedist. Let's hope he's more savvy than my last doctor (which wouldn't take much really).
Did you have have a good weekend?
{Don't forget to enter this weekend's giveaway! Winner will be chosen tomorrow night.}

I do like this look--especially when using really brightly colored plates similar to the last image--it adds the perfect touch of fun :-) I had a very relaxing weekend...a little TOO relaxing...Monday is already giving me a headache :-( boo.

I love the last wall! Those bird plates are too fabulous!

Ah, my mum has the most fabulous plate wall - it's perfectly round, and each plate is one my parents have collected from their travels - so there's morrocco, turkey, italy, spain... so many, and all so so beautiful.
I'll have to take a pic one day to show you what I mean! x

Hope the orthopedist will take good care of you darling...

I saw that first room and totally thought of you! It's awesome. I also love the last one. It's so crazy in a really good way. I hope your foot is okay. That sounds painful.

Bluebell said...

Loving this post! Those bird plates are so pretty!

Kristen Sara said...

NOt a fun weekend for me... lots of studying, but I almost through with all of that (for a few weeks at least). I hope you're foot isn't too badly reinjured... hope your appointment goes well!

christina said...

I HAVE missed your plate wall posts! I especially love the one with pictures interspersed. Good luck with the orthopedist. Doesn't sound like much fun. My weekend consisted of lots of work and a sick child. Hopefully the week gets better as it goes along.

OceanDreams said...

I'm currently in the process of collecting plates (it's taking me a bit too long....). But, either way, these give me some more great ideas! Merci!

Kotori said...

So glad you're bringing back the plate wall posts! When are we going to see one at your place?

pranksygang said...

The last photo is amazing! Hope that you will get some great advice from the doctor!

Gabbi said...

Before this I would turn my nose up to decorative plates, but now I must have. You've got vintage visionary style... does that make sense?

Callie Grayson said...

Good luck with the new foot doc! You are wearing good shoes at work, yet? (don't I sound like a mother...)

My mom always decorated with plates when I was little. Maybe I should dig up those old plates and use them inmy studio!

drollgirl said...

i am so sorry about your foot problemas. lordy, injuries like that are awful!!!

i think my stupid ankle is on week six of healing (heeling -- ha!). it is somewhat better, but methinks it will most likely annoy me for the rest of my life. STOOOOOOOOOOPID.

Kristin said...

My Mom has a dining room plate display, but I never would have thought of putting them over the bed. What a fab idea!

Yansy said...

I like plate walls but always when added to a gallery wall. I feel it creates more interest.
