This plate belonged to my Grandmother. When it came to our house I would carefully wash it and hang it back on the wall. I loved the colour of the plate and still do My Mother gave it to me when I married and I have enjoyed it's presence in our home ever since. A few years back I thought I recognized the old building in the distance and on closer inspection the name Tintern is printed on the back. This is a picture of Tintern Abbey in South Wales. One of the first places my husband had taken me in 1975 and every trip since.
Here is a photo of the Abbey. The River Wye runs through the valley. The farm where we rent a cottage is only 10 minutes from this scene. It's like I was meant to go there, don't you think?
