Small Town Living at Its Best

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.

Vintage Thingie Thursday

When my Mom and Dad were married in 1954

my Grandma Alley painted a wedding plate for them.

I just love the lady and gentleman on this plate!

The next one, would be me - when I was born. The plate had a spot of rust on it

when I got it out this time, and I got most of it off - but not all.

Then, when I was married, I got the one below. I cherish it, mainly because I don't think

she made them for anyone else in the family.

I wish she'd continued on, and made them for our kids too. I also wish I were talented enough to make them for my Grands - but I don't think my Grands are going to get attached to "things" quite like I do! Ha! Thanks for stopping by, and please leave a comment. I'm linking to Vintage Thingie Thursday at the below address:


  1. That is priceless! How wonderful that you have ones from your marriage and your mom and dads! They look alot some tin doll dishes I had as a kid, similar design!

  2. These remind me of a favorite plate at my mother's house. Yours are extra special, though, because they are hand painted. I would cherish them!

  3. How precious! The couples made me think of a place called Ferrel's that we went to for ice cream when I was little. The decor and employee's clothes were that same era. Happy Mother's Day!

  4. Brought back memories . She made them for wedding gifts around Ash Grove , but then got into painting pictures and did not make them any more. love you, keep them and remember MOM.
