Memories and plates on the wall

Many years ago we bought a plate for my mum and dad for Christmas.

In our family room we have a wall of plates that each have some significance to us.

The Hills Clothes Hoist plate is from our younger daughter.  The cockerel plate with the clock mechanism was converted to a clock by our son and the dark blue plate on the left-hand side is from our elder daughter.

Do you have any plates that bring back memories to you?

    What a lovely collection of plates. I do have a few plates that have memories but they’re not nicely displayed on a wall like yours.

      We visited a restaurant recently where each meal was served on a different patterned plate. It made for a pleasant change from the usual white offering.
