Weddings And Some Finds

This past week has been busy.  My sister and I went shopping, she's my matron of honor so she needs a dress for the wedding and I'm still looking for the right dress. We went for so long without any weddings in the family and in less than one year theres going to be three.  My nephew got married last November, my cousin next Sunday and me in October.  Weddings are everywhere.  I had to drag the fiancé to the men's clothing store or he would go to the wedding next Sunday in jeans and a t-shirt.  I did manage to make it to a few second hand stores.

I almost missed this apron if I hadn't back tracked at the local Salvation Army store it wouldn't have been in this picture.

I have never seen blue Cornflower Corning Ware mugs before so these were a nice find.

These pictures are from a May 01st 1965 advertising section of a weekend Magazine featuring 'Terylene clothing sold at the time in Eaton's stores across Canada.

My nephew had his say on two things at his wedding their wedding cake was Pac man and the shoes he wore.

This is the dress I'm planning to wear to my cousins wedding.

Wedding Update:

I stopped and got some cake samples no luck there the search continues.

Lucy in Langley, British Columbia is my new favourite dress shop I took my sister there and she got a dress to wear for my wedding.

Thank you for taking the time to visit.

Another My Finds / His Finds

Well first things first, I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We had a family dinner last night at my mothers.  Most of us were able to be there, only a few were missing.

My Finds:

This purse was a second hand store find, it may be going to my niece if she likes the colors.

This carafe is a great find it was made by
Inland Glass.

His Finds:

My fiancé found this Fire King mug at the flea market for me.

This divided Pyrex dish is in the Compass pattern and was also a flea market find.
My sister gave my mom, my cousins fiancé and me each a tie dye rose.

Wedding Update:
I found a backup dress so if I don't find the actual dress I'm looking for so I will still have something to wear.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.

Warm, Sunny Spring Days And Finds

Warm sunny Spring weather has finally come to the Fraser Valley in British Columbia this past weekend.  We did some wedding stuff which I'll tell you about later and some yard work.

This is my first Corgi model car it's a Mercedes Benz 300 SL it has a few scratches but it fits in my collection nicely. Corgi is a English company and my car was made in Great Britain.

This bowl is Franciscan Ware which was made in California in the United States.  I found it at a second hand store.  I added some brooches to add color and a feeling of Spring.

This paperweight is another addition to my collection.
I saw these Fire King mugs on a cart when they were wheeling it out onto the floor at my favourite second hand store.  I made a beeline for the cart and scooped them up.

I use this cloth holder to hold a pen, a paper pad and papers in my purse so they're easier to find.

Wedding Update:

I'm thinking of doing a hairstyle like the above one if I find the right 50's style dress.
Image was found on Goggle Image.  

The last two weekends we have spent doing two gift registries for the wedding. The first store which I'm not going to name was not a great experience thanks to a computer and scanner that did not work very well though one of the clerks was trying to be helpful.  This nightmare took almost 3 hours and by that time we had one page of items.

This past Saturday was a totally different experience.  We went to the  Hudson's Bay the clerk there  was helpful and did the computer part for us and the scanner was easy to use and they had a better selection. If your doing a gift registry I totally recommend them.

The Dahlia's in the above pictures are what they had on the bins  that I got the tubers from.  I'm planting some and others we are handing out to family and friends to grow for the wedding.

Thank you for taking the time to visit.

Glass, Mid Century Modern Finds And Easter

This past week we made it to the second hand stores a few times which is better then once a week like the two previous weeks.  We had some great glass and mid century modern finds.

I found this decanter and six small glasses at a local second hand store.  I think they may be mid century modern.

This dish was a find that I was really happy to make I really like this piece a lot.  It wasn't easy to get a good picture of I'm afraid.

This candle holder was a surprise find.

I don't know when this black vase was made but I really like it.

This red paperweight I have added to my collection I already have a larger one like it in red.

These Fire King bowls I've actually have had for a little while.  I thought they had a Spring feel which is why I'm showing them now.

Back To The Hoosier:

As you can see the Hoosier is decorated for Easter.  Among the Pyrex and Fire King are egg cups with Ukrainian eggs and rabbit molds and other Easter themed things.

From The Family Collection:

This is a picture of me I guess I'm mid century modern too so I fit into this post.
Thank you for taking the time to visit.
