I Didn't Know What I Had...

I am a garage sale, Goodwill, thrift shop junkie!
My summer usually involves driving around on the weekend finding great garage sales. I have many theories about garage sales; how they should be advertised, what should be on a sign, prices, haggling, etc. BUT I don't have time to go into that today!
I have something more important to share with you.
I received my new Country Living Magazine yesterday!

Now, I know your already thinking, "She's lost it!" "Already she's off subject!"
No, really it relates...I'll show you

Straight out of this months Country Living is this picture. They used a whole page for this one picture in the magazine, which instantly drew my eye right smack dab to the middle of everything going on.

Do you see the adorable blue plates hanging on the wall? They're German majolica plates.
"What is German majolica?", you ask.


I have two....too
I picked them up at a garage sale a couple of years ago for $4. I simply liked them because they were that great tealy blue color and I had a thing for birds that summer.
They made great props for my shop's garlands, and I even had a lady convo me on Etsy about wanting to buy them.

I said, "Naaaaaaah, I like them. They're pretty!"
Well, I looked them up on Ebay, and they are selling for a lot more than $4 for the pair.
I admit that I don't usually know the value of what I buy. I simply buy it because I like it, and that's it. But this time, I really didn't know what I had.

God Bless Everyone!!
