First up is a beautiful candle/plant stand. It is really large, probably around 10 inches tall and 5-6 inches across. I think it will make a pretty plant stand. I love it, even though it isn't a color I would normally go for. It's really pretty and was $3.99. I'm sure it cost much more than that new!
I also found this pretty hand-painted plate. It was made in Italy. It was marked down to $1. The color around the edge looks really pretty with the plant stand above! I think they will be pretty together in a spring vignette.
This was my best find though! I got 6 white dinner plates for $3.99! I was so excited to find these. I really want open shelving in my kitchen when I redo it, so I can display all my pretty white dishes!
Next stop on my road trip was by a little roadside store that sells pecans, different kinds of chocolate-covered pecans, pecan brittle, homemade jellies and jams, etc. I have never stopped there, but my mom and daughter have. I have had the pecans before, and let me tell you they are delish!
These are my favorites.....heavenly!!!
Well, if you are still with me....thank you! Just to finish my trip, Miranda and I went back to her place to fix a simple dinner and bake some cookies while we watched a Redbox rental....Playing for Keeps. It was really good! We got a good night's sleep, got up and got ready for church. I enjoyed attending her church with her for the first time! After church, John met us for lunch at the Village Inn before I headed home. It was a wonderful weekend and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to go. I always love spending time with Miranda (and John). John is such an awesome young man! He was off this past week for spring break and heads back to school tomorrow. He is in his second year of Med School at FSU and is not looking forward to going back to the countless hours of classes and studying that he has throughout the week! It will pay off one day though...:)
I am so happy you stopped by and thanks again if you stuck with me through my trip!
I'll leave you with a picture of the capital that I snapped Friday afternoon on my way into town!
Until next time.....
