Today is the big day and I am enjoying my coffee and the quiet before the chaos begins. I've got a house full of people, a graduate to get out the door for practice, 4 dozen Red Velvet Cupcakes to bake, and a party for 50+ to put the finishing touches on. These and a million other things all before we leave at noon for the ceremony. I'm exhausted already.
Yesterday, I ran out the door with a small list of errands that I needed to complete for the party today. I was at Michael's when I got the call from Brian about an awesome church sale that he had just gone to. After he told me about the things he found, he remembered that he had forgotten to grab an old suitcase that he thought I might like. I put the cupcake wrappers back that I had in my hand and hurried out to my car. Good thing the sale was only down the road.
So not only did he forget the suitcase, he also forgot the awesome old mailbox and pink birdcage. The birdcage has been on my list forever.
I adore the handwritten name on the side of the mailbox. I think I'm either going to use it outside to store garden tools and gloves in or turn it into a planter somehow.
On my way back to finish my errands, I stopped by another sale (Hey, I'm only human!), and found this thing-a-ma-jig. Not sure what it's original purpose was for but it is now holding napkins, straws, small plastic cups for wine, sugar, and lemon. Perfect for today's party! I'll post a pic on IG later.
I stopped at one more sale that had an entire bedroom dedicated to Christmas. Evidently the homeowner had several trees throughout her house decorated with different themes. She had tons of beautiful but newer ornaments but I was able to find one bag of older ones along with a couple plastic deer and a Santa. I also picked up this sweet towel.
It was nice to be able to do a little sale-ing. I didn't find a whole lot but sometimes it's quality over quantity, right?
Linking up with How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.
Off to make those cupcakes!
Have a great weekend~
