New uses of plates.

Among our favorite things are plates. They come in all shapes, sizes and designs. We often come across unusual saucers in flea markets, or even at home, from incomplete sets.

Some are souvenirs of places, which makes them even harder to part with. Here are some uses (or excuses!) we've found to keep them anyway.
