Blue Roses-Vintage China Plate

I got this gorgeous Made In Japan dinner sized china at a little church thrift store.  It was $1.00.  There was a bunch of these plates but you know how that goes.    I am running out of room and feel like a hoarder as it is.  But I will say, I am regretting not getting more.  The pattern is so pretty.  I don't usually come across blue roses.

It's just gorgeous.  So feminine and elegant.  Oh well.  My loss is someone else's gain, right?

Of course, I couldn't stop myself from adding the plate to a vintage candle stick holder (25 cents at the hospital thrift store)  to make a cake server.  I love this piece!

Linking up today with Between Naps On The Porch Metamorphis Monday
Southern Hospitality's Today's Thrifty Treasures
Smiling Sally's  Blue Monday.

Make it a good one!

It is a delicate, pretty pattern Roselle! I know I've regretted not purchasing a few things when I've had the chance over the years. I think you might enjoy it even more as a cake stand though! Good idea to use it that way.

I love your cake stand, I've seen them at craft shows everywhere, I wonder how they get glued together, is there a special glue for china and glass? Thank you for sharing your creations and have a wonderful Memorial weekend!

Could you possibly give me the pattern or manufacturers name? I believe that is my mother's pattern and I am desperately trying to get more information on it. My heart leaped when I saw the picture.
