Why I love to Go To Garage Sales!

I have been going to garage sales with my mom for a while. My mom loves it and so do I. We would always go through the paper Wednesday night and circle the sales that we wanted to go to Thursday. We would get up early Thursday morning and begin our adventure. I love a good deal as much as anyone but it was so nice to spend time with my mom. Last weekend however, I drug my family out to go with me. They were so excited to be joining me in this adventure ( I hope you caught my sarcasm). We only had a limited time and I found a lot of baby and toddler clothes like I always do but I also found a decorative plate holder. I knew that I wanted it as soon as I saw it but when I saw the price I was in heaven. $1. That is all they wanted. To me it was worth way more. I was so excited and so the wheels began to turn. When I got home I was wondering where to hang it and what I was going to put on it. I do not have extra plates to hang so I decided to paint a couple from our old set.

These are nice plates but we updated to new ones about a year ago. These have been sitting in a box in our crawl space so I decided why not try to paint them and see what I can come up with. My kitchen is accented in blues and browns and the plate holder is white.

Sorry, this is not the best picture.

I did not want anything to fancy because nothing else in my kitchen is. I took my paints out and decided to keep it simple and paint two of them blue and two brown. I really like the way they turned out and it is just another thing to say that I did myself.
