8 Pretty Plates! found me!

My mind just has not been on posting the last two days.  My elderly father is seriously ill, and that has occupied my mind.  While coming home from the hospital yesterday, I was worried and stressed.  You know the feeling...it's where you are trying to fix EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY!  One of my favorite thrift stores sat on the right of the road...I hit my brakes, hung a right, and pulled into the parking lot.  Simply going into that old store, the tightness in my neck, eased. 

Sitting on the shelf was a pile of white plates. On further inspection...they took my breath away...they were LOVELY! Notice the price $2.92~ AMAZING!!

My DH, Wayne, was such an angel...He hung them up for me this morning...and I don't feel so stressed anymore...I feel blessed!

 I played with the placement for a looooong time.
Don't you think they  look so homey and elegant, all at the same time?  I do!
The lovely old "bird print", was a birthday present from Wayne when I turned 50 (which is really the new 30)!
Thank you for visiting with me today! I cherish your friendship.
Blessings,
Rebecca

Rebecca, your plates are definitely a treasure. I found two that were similar and cherish them, so you have a fabulous collection for sure. They look so pretty around your beautiful painting. The whole wall look amazing.

I am continuing to pray for you dad. God Bless. Hugs, Marty

Hi Friend
You did find the mother load of all. $2.99 I can't believe it. You now have an instant collection.
I love the potions you placed them over your sofa and around the great painting Kathy
