Many years ago we bought a plate for my mum and dad for Christmas.
Since then we bought two plates of our own. When mum and dad passed away the plate came back to us and we now have three plates above our kitchen doorway.
In our family room we have a wall of plates that each have some significance to us.
The little square plate is one of a set of five given to me as a gift from a parent of a Japanese student I taught.
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.
Each plate is a link to a memory of someone or somewhere we have visited.
Do you have any plates that bring back memories to you?
