Plate Walls (you asked for it)

Some of you have commented about that fact that there are still plate walls to be posted, "how do you keep finding them..." Well, if there's a plate wall out here in cyberspace, I'm going to find it, ok? Worry not, my obsessions don't die easily AND because you all have given me the unanimous 'go ahead' I will keeping searching for plate walls until this trend dies out (I don't foresee that happening).

If you'd like to see the ongoing collection of plate walls, please click here. Thank you to The Cottage Cheese for giving me the heads up on one of these walls. If you run across a plate wall that isn't already on the list (and you don't want to keep it all to yourself) please e-mail it to me and I'll be sure to link to you - downandoutchic@gmail.com
Oh, I've also received a couple of requests to show you MY plate wall. Well, if one existed, I'd be happy to do that, but currently our house is sans plate walls. Sometimes obsessions are best left at a distance, you know?

I love plate walls.
I was going to put a favorite plate on a wall, but well let's just say that things didn't work out.
So disappointed.

Seriously, you do have a knack for finding fabulous plate walls!

I don't think plate walls can be a trend. My mom has been hanging plates for a million years...

Rene said...

I LOVE your plate walls and yes, please continue to share them. The different arrangements & color combos are an inspiration!

Laura Trevey said...

I keep debating a plate wall for our home. I have the plates, and the wall space (ha) but not sure if I am ready to commit, yet. I do love them though!

Jaime said...

Just got your email- no problem! :) Thanks for letting me know!

The picture from Cottage Cheese was so great--not only the plates, but those awesome suitcases...and the deep red cabinet with the numbers. *deep sigh*

Love those big yellow plates!

Caitlin said...

Wow, a post about plate walls? I never saw that coming, hehe

Diana said...

LOL- always on the lookout.

Sam said...

I love your love of plate walls! I love your love more than the plate walls themselves!!! Although that first and third one is pretty snazzy!

Iva said...

the big yellow ones are so great!! So cheery and bright! so much fun! {great little basket by the couch too!}

these are really fab finds. my grandma in AK used to have plates displayed all the way around her GIGANTIC kitchen. she was mad for blue and white china. actually, she was mad for dishes in general and had over 30 sets! i ended up getting some of the blue and white after she died.

i am rambling.

anywhoo, plates are good on walls and on tables! :)

Gabby said...

This post made me smile! I wholeheartedly support your obsession, lady.

The 2nd one is my favorite... I want to copy that room now and put it in my own place!
I found a great plate wall a few weeks back and posted it during my Halloween posts... made me think of you!

Hanako66 said...

please don't stop!

Gabbi said...

haha... seriously, I was just thinking when I saw the orange post the other day that you hadn't done a plate one!! And damn it, I want some plates on my wall... must find and figure out how to put them up. :)

Echoing here, but yeah, please don't stop with the plates.

Courtney said...

I adore these posts - keep them coming! Once you find the right plate {in person}, I'm sure it will spark your very own plate wall.

I love the butter yellow plates and the pretty ones over the kitchen table.

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Woah, those giant white plates? AMAZING.

The Cottage Cheese said...

Yay, more plate walls! I love the kitchen plate wall from design is mine. I'm such a pusher, feeding the obsession, tee-hee :)
