Saturday Treasures and a Sneak Peek

Went to some Estate Sales over the last week and found some goodies!!  Found these big red tassels which I think will be fun to decorate with for Christmas.  Also a bunch of red crocheted potholders, a patchwork quilt Santa and some Mercury glass pieces.

Here's a close up of the quilt Santa.  Isn't he cute?

A couple of pieces of brown transferware plus

a set of salt and pepper shakers.

A really pretty partial set of blue and white dishes.  They are by Arzberg which I am not familiar with.  There was 2 eggcups, creamer and sugar, large bowl, covered dish (Butter dish???), 2 small plates and one large plate.  I thought they would be pretty mixed in with some of my other blue and white dishes.  It was called a "Breakfast Set" - apparently only one person got coffee and got to eat with a big plate!  LOL

Love this blue and white pitcher.

And now to the sneak peek.  I made Tiffany's bouquet from antique and not so antique brooches.  We had collected them for years before she ever got engaged because that's what she wanted "some day".

It was large and a little on the heavy side.  She used all white hydrangeas for the wedding along with silver and black.  

The underneath side was wrapped in satin ribbon and silver rhinestones for the handle.  There was a charm with John's picture on it.

Am waiting on the photographers' pictures and will share when we get them.  They were at the venue for 10 hours so there will be alot of pics.  Will let you know as soon as we get them and will try to not overwhelm you with photos. 

It was such a pleasure to be able to help her with all of the wedding planning.  The day was perfect as was the venue.  The venue was two big barns (all new) with a house attached to the reception barn.  We had the venue for three days, so we had plenty of time to decorate and enjoy.  The bridesmaids all stayed the night before the wedding.  The house had room to sleep about 12-14 people.  It had a swimming pool and a hot tub so they are had a really good time.

Thanks for letting me share about the wedding.

  7. Love that quilted Santa and the blue and white dishes. Tiffany's bouquet is stunning!!

  8. The vintage broach bouquet is stunning.. and I love the little charm with a picture of her dad on her wedding day. How wonderful was that? The venue sounds wonderful too and fun for everyone involved. Memories made there for sure. Oh... and the little vintage quilt santa is darling... I had a couple of vintage quilts from my mom, that she found at some estate sale or other, and had planned to make some little stuffed things.. but think I sold them finally at one of our yard sales as I've been trying to "pare down".... but it seems our house is still stuffed to the gills and my paring down isn't working too well. Take care! Marilyn
