I Do BBQ - Couples Shower

One of my dearest friends in the world has a son that is getting married. Several of us went in together and planned a couples shower with the theme of "I Do BBQ". I was in charge of the decorations. I really used a lot of stuff that I already had on hand (hmmm - I guess that's how it is when you are a junker). I found a ton of ideas on Pinterest. Anyway I thought I would share a few photos of the decorations and the shower.

 I brought some old frames with me and we went outside and made some photos. Surprisingly I think they turned out pretty good (I'm not the best photographer in the world - ha ha). 

It was a fun day and I enjoyed celebrating this new chapter in Chris and Brittany's life with them.

I also enjoyed spending time with these fantastic ladies!

Congrats and Best Wishes to Chris and Brittany!

Estate Sale Finds

I had a fabulous week in Estate Sale Land this week! I only went to one sale but it was a good one. The prices were really reasonable and I found some fun stuff! 

I love old book illustrations. Especially the ones from the early 1900's and I brought home a bag full of them. The covers are damaged and some are in poor shape but the illustrations are still lovely to look at. I often buy old books just for the illustrations so I don't mind if the spine is shot or there is damage on the cover, they still have value to me. I grabbed this first book so fast it would make your head spin. It's a 1911 Harrison Fisher book. The cover is horrible as you can see from the first photo but the inside is in really great shape, oh how I love this book!

Here are some of the other books I picked up (warning - lots of pictures).

I made a really big score with this Black Waterman Opera Pen. Google it, you will be surprised.

I have always wanted one of the hair pin flower frogs but have never come across any until yesterday, I found not one but three!

I also brought home these goodies.

You would think that was enough right but after talking with Mom last night we thought we would run back over today. Everything was 50% off when we arrived this morning. I didn't find a lot of vintage today but I did find a lot of baking and office supplies for around .25 to .50 a piece.

So I am pretty happy with my haul this week. Hope you are happy with yours!!
