Blue Ridge Pottery and Springtime

I have been collecting vintage Blue Ridge Pottery for a number of years.  Before our kitchen redo,  I had a large display of Blue Ridge platters and plates on the wall in the breakfast nook.  After our redo, that wall is covered with my Chestnut and Vine quilt.  I still wanted to display some of the dishes in my kitchen.  I found this plate rack at the thrift store.  The holder in the center had a candle holder.  I removed the candle holder and spray painted the rack blue.  It now hangs on the wall near the kitchen sink.  I selected floral plates for this display and a lovely creamer on what remains of the candle holder.  I haveBlue Ridge platters displayed on other racks in the kitchen (pics at a later date).  

 I placed a Welcome Spring display on the raised ledge below this plate rack.

These flowers and little signs were purchased at the 99 Cent Store.   My sister gave me the vintage pitcher.  I am anxiously awaiting Spring (however, it has been Spring Like here in Arizona for the past month).   Hoping for orange blossoms soon.

So cheery and colorful. Love those pretty painted plates. I have a collection of plates hanging above our dining table. Our weather is warming up here, too with 75 as the high though it sure seems warmer than that at times. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy
