2015 Covered Bridge Festival Finds

Hey all!  I'm back to blogland after a little hiatus from getting married.  I am here today to share my finds with you from when I went to the Covered Bridge Festival on Saturday, October 10th.

But first... let me share a few shots with you that friends took at our wedding! 


The photo booth I created.  My photographer took every family photo, so that I can send one in each thank you card.


 The back view of my wedding dress in the photo booth.


My friend Sarah made us this beautiful wedding cake.  The topper is vintage and I picked it up this past summer.  Not sure if it will go back into the wild or not, but the cake plate already has!


Me and my matron of honor/best friend right before the wedding.


My dad walking me down the aisle.


We did it!!


 Me and my flower girl


 My husband and his gang.

Now here's my finds that I finally had time to photograph yesterday!


One of my favorite finds in awhile.  I bought this collection of mammys/pappys from an older woman looking to downsize her collection.


A few odds and ends.  This jadeite vase was still in the vendor's booth at the end of the day on Saturday and it was only FOUR DOLLARS.  I'm really surprised it was still there.


I bought this collection of West Virginia Glass/Blendo glasses.  So many pretties.


I was tempted to keep the kelly green Fire King mugs for myself.  They're in mint condition.  The older woman I bought them from said she got these all as a gift and had maybe only used them a few times.


 Some birdy chalkware.  Unfortunately right after this picture the bluebird with the top hat got broken.  Bummer.


I love weird souvenir glasses.


Can you believe I bought all this aluminum from one person... for TEN DOLLARS.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!  I walked away quickly before they realized how great of a deal they gave me.



I always pick up old license plates when I find them for cheap.  The one in the bottom left is from 1927!


It's always a good day when you find pink Pyrex.  I was REALLY really tempted to keep the green fired-on McKee measuring cup.  I've never seen one in person before!

That's it for this week!  Can't wait to get back to my regular junkin' adventures.



Speaking of junkin' adventures... I plan to start broadcasting some on Periscope. If you aren't on periscope, join immediately.  It's too much fun!

Wedding Crunch Time

Hey Guys!  Can you believe it has been a little over a year since I got engaged?  Now, I'm getting married in FIVE DAYS!  I did a bit of preparation this weekend that I wanted to share with you guys, as I have no clue how many pictures I'll actually remember to take while I'm setting up and on the big day itself.

Friday night I accomplished putting together 12/14 centerpieces for the table.  I didn't finish the last 2 because I ran out of stuff I wanted to finish them up.  Are you ready to take a look?








After packing this one away and looking back over all the pictures, I think this one needs a book or 2 somewhere in the vignette.

Here's #13 centerpiece that I came up with after bringing together more supplies.


Here's #14 that I came up with.

Saturday my mom and I got up early to do the garage sales along the Covered Bridge Festival route.  You can read about my 2011 Day 1 and Day 2 finds, my first time selling at the Covered Bridge Festival in 2012, my 2013 finds, and my 2014 finds.

I did buy some stuff for my booth, but overall there weren't as many sales as there were in years past.  Also, a lot of the vendors we did come across had very high prices.  Some of the prices were higher than antique store prices!  We also finished buying up flower, pumpkins, and squash for the wedding decor.


 Look at all we picked out!


We magically fit it all in with the stuff I bought.  You can see the 4 cute child's chairs I bought.


A good majority of stuff gathered in one place for the wedding decor.  Can you believe I owned most of this before I even got engaged? There's plenty that's not pictured here that will be part of the decor.


Wood boxes for days!





 Here's some purple and white mums!


Here's the rest!
Mom went out and bought a bunch of smaller mums yesterday to help fill in small areas.


A project I completed yesterday.  It will be tied onto a suitcase on the gift table.

***UPDATE 10/13/15***


Here's what the banner looks like on the suitcase.


Here's what will be in the photo booth.  Check out the backdrop for the photo booth HERE (scroll to bottom).


Some more goodies from my collection for decor.


 And some more!


 And more!


Here's my "seating chart" sign.  Please, sit wherever. :)

Okay, so what do you think?  What do you like?  What am I missing?
