As requested by Eva, sorry dear, I took so long to upload the photo for you. Here is my personal collectible plate collection. I have a set of cottage garden year series produced in 1984 and a pair of secret garden series produced in 1993. All of these items are bought one piece at one time from ebay UK. I never have a chance to win the bid when the seller listed the plates in set of 2 or 4..*sigh* because most bidders will look for a set so that they can save shipping cost for combine items.

It took me approximately 2 years in completing the set of cottage garden series as I have to patiently wait for a reasonable offer price and shipping cost. Enough of plates, I guess ..*sigh* as I don’t have available space for new addition..*wink*.
