First try at blogging and showing off my new found treasures


Hello to all who have found my blog, please forgive my learning curve. The picture didn't go where I thought it would...lol. Don't know if anyone will read my blog but I thought I would give it a try. Hope you enjoy!

Today was an amazing garage sale day for me. I found this stack of Patrician Amber depression glass plates hidden under some sheets of paper towel. When I asked how much for the stack of plates I had to contain my excitement...she said $5 because they are slightly chipped. (Minor chips don't bother me because I buy things that make me happy and that I know I will use. These 14 pretty plates will be hanging around my kitchen window and a few will adorn the foyer.) So, I gladly handed over my $5 for these treasures. My daughter was excited to find a "vintage" Candy Land game :-) at this same garage sale. Normally in my area you can find tons of used baby things so today was a great day for me!
Have a great day!

Hi Kim,
Thank you for your visit. I remember when I first started my blog in January. It was all so new to me but as time go on I'm starting to get the hang of it. I will stop by again.
Hugs,
Mo :-)
