Yellow is my favorite color for roses and I had always loved this plate, so when she asked me which of her pieces I wanted, I immediately chose the yellow roses plate! I am beyond thrilled to have this, and other pieces that she painted. They are on display in my home and every time I look at them, I remember my dear aunt.
She painted it in 1970 on a Noritake china plate. The little scroll work on the plate's edge is part of the plate's design.

So, it is only fitting that my Y word for AlphabeThursday is Yellow, for Yellow Roses! Go on over to Jenny's for some more Y's!
