Here are some of the things that I've been purchasing lately...over the past 2 or 3 months actually!! I just never got around to taking pics of them until Thanksgiving weekend, and then I had to bug my fiance to re-install our digital camera software onto our computer before I could finally upload them on here lol!! Anyways, so these are all things that I've just found locally at places like Old Time Pottery and even the Dollar General lol!! I still haven't begun to order anything with our names and the date on them yet, but that's because I was pretty sure that we were gonna have to change our date...AGAIN!! And I was right about that...as of yesterday we officially changed our date from May 9th, 2009, to August 7th, 2009...but at least this means now I can get busy on actually ordering some things with our names and the date on them!! :-)
So the first 2 pics are of this really cute beach themed basket that I found at Old Time Pottery for like $3 and now I think I might go back and get 2 more to use as "bathroom baskets"...they come in different shapes and sizes so I would probably want the ones that were more sqaure and not as long and narrow, but still the same design!!
I love my little blue mini lanterns!! They were on sale 50% off at Old Time Pottery, but they only had one pack that was blue...so I'm thinking I might just use these on our cake table??!! Not really sure yet but they are super cute!!
I LOVE my little wedding pails...I got them at the Dollar General for $.50 each, normally $1 each, and these were exactly what I was looking for because I had seen pics of these seashell toothpicks that I want to order and they put them in little pails too!! So when I saw these I was pretty much jumping up and down cause I couldn't believe I found them at the Dollar General and didn't have to actually order them from somewhere lol!!
I also got my Wedding Cake Bubbles at the Dollar General too...I seriously couldn't believe that they had them there because these were the ones that I was planning on ordering anyways!! They were on sale $.50 each instead of $1 each, so I got 25 packs of them so that we'll have 100 total!!
I got these ceramic vases from Old Time Pottery too...they don't look like much right now, but they were on sale $4 each instead of $10 each!! I'll be painting them white or off white to match the color of the roman columns that we'll be renting and they will be perfect to hold our floral arrangements in!! The shorter/wider ones will be for the two 8 foot columns that will be used as our backdrop during the ceremony and the taller ones will be used on either side of the aisle whenever you first walk into the room!! We won't be having floral arrangements on ALL of the columns going down the aisle, just the very 1st two!!
I had been looking for a nice blue brooch and I found this one...it's pretty but now I'm not sure what I will be putting it on lol!!
I bought this seashell hat box at first thinking I might be able to use it as a make-shift card box, but now I'm having one made for me that's absolutely gorgeous from Elegance by EMarie (bluebabygirl09 is her screenname)!! So now I'm not sure what I will do with this, but I'll find some use for it...besides we're redocorating our bathroom to be beach themed as well so I can always use some of these items in our bathroom after the wedding lol!!
The last pics are just some cute vases with seashells around the bottom of them...they came from Old Time Pottery for like $2 each and again I'm not really sure where or how I'll be using these yet, but I'll find something to do with them lol!!
