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.


  1. You do find some lovely things! :) My son's fiancee found a wedding dress...slinky, beaded halter from the 80's for 50.00 in a consignment shop and all that I had to do was let down the hem for her. We found one online later on ( exact same dress ) for over 700.00 at a vintage couture shop! I'd say that she was one lucky girl! :)

  2. That pink dress is stunning!!! And I have to say the Pac Man cake is pretty nifty!

  3. I am so glad you back tracked and found that apron at the Salvation Army store. It is lovely!

  4. My mom used to have a lot of Cornflower Blue stuff but never the mugs.
