I love vintage china plates, cups and saucers, and although I'm not serious about collecting them, I do like to pick up odd bits and pieces that catch my eye by their pretty designs or nostalgic glimpses into the past. But I've found a new way to collect china plates: etsy seller, TrixieDelicious, takes found vintage plates and inscribes them with beautiful calligraphy - with a modern twist. So there's "Brat":

and "Clueless"

and the "Bitch" cup and saucer:

I LOVE this Housefly which she has painted on a lovely embossed and painted plate:

TrixieDelicious also painted a White Stripes portrait on a plate - cool!
Trixiedelicious uses heat-fused ceramic paint, and the plates are food safe (if you wanted to use them) and also come with a hanger (if you'd rather hang it on the wall). Check out her shop to see her really collectible wall art; she has a wicked sense of humour (I have to warn you, there's a bit of 'mature content' as etsy puts it, in her work, as well)!

They are great!

Just saw your stuff on etsy! I'm starting to get some clothing online too, but I just adore your work!

Ok the 'bitch' cup, is soooo awesome! I got a really good chuckle out of it :)
