Some people see plates as, well, just plates. I see them as bases for tiered cupcake stands, wall art, and jewelry trays. So when I happen upon a divine selection, such as Nathalie Lété's selection at Anthropologie, I can hardly walk away from them. When the French artist was commissioned to design for Anthropologie, I knew we were in for a treat. But to my surprise, it's the kind of treat I can actually afford. At $24 a plate, they may not be a bargain, but they certainly beat some of the artwork I've been perusing or the China I tend to ogle. Once again, the most heartbreaking part about seeing the vast selection of the romantic plates is my inability to take home every single piece for my hutch. I have to admit, I was taken with the pup. I could practically hear the petite painted dog on a green trim scalloped plate yelping for me to take him home.
