Her mom met us there since she lives close by. She helped wrangle the kids and did a little treasure hunting as well!
During our trip I spotted something that I always hunt for, an ironstone plate! Ironstone is a rare find where we live, unless you want to pay a small fortune for it! I've been collecting ironstone plates in the hopes that one day I will have sweet little set of mismatched ironstone plates. I spent $1 on the plate! I was beyond excited! And then tragedy struck (well not really tragedy but close) I dropped my beloved plate! I was so sad!
We went on with our day and had a great time but I couldn't get that plate out of my head! Two days later at a garage sale I found the same plate for a quarter! I had a grip on that plate like it was my first born child! I've decided it was gift from God that sweet little plate, just a reminder of how much he cares for us, even the silly little things we care about matter to Him.
After finding that plate I was motivated to get some work done on end tables that I've been painting for Noelle's mom. Since I had just seen her we made some decisions on exactly how she wanted them finished and here they are...
I love how the end tables turned out! I'm a sucker for two toned french provincial style furniture!
