What a doll.

….well, teal to be exact.

While planning my wedding, trips to antique malls, antique shows, and garage sales have become part of the norm. With a wedding theme like kitschy-vintage-whimsy-casual, you’re destined to spend a lot of time perusing long lost treasures.

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite finds thus far that will grace tabletops and other nooks and crannies of our par-tay.

Hankies

We’re going to make these vintage hankies into pillows for the lounge/cocktail area. Tossing about the idea of putting a monogram in the middle, as well.

Vases

We’ve been collecting an assortment of bird and/or teal or orange vases to use in the tablescapes. Aren’t they sooo fun?

An aerial view of all of the vases. Swans, birds, figurines, I cannot wait to decorate with them after the wedding, too!

Take a Seat My Dear

This one’s probably my favorite find. We’ll mount it and frame it to be placed at the “check-in” table with the escort cards. Love!

What fun finds did you or will you incorporate into your wedding, party, or event? I’d love to hear!

What do you think? Good enough for a Smart Water ad? ;)

Portland, OR

This one slipped away from me – I forgot it was on my phone! While walking through a delightful neighborhood in Portland, I stumbled upon this gem of a yard sign. Couldn’t help but stop for a pic. If only I had actually seen the nice lady and beloved old goat!
