Wedding ideas from Etsy

I stalked Etsy for things to use at my wedding. I wanted to post some of the wonderful things I used from Etsy for my wedding. I also brought gifts for my wedding party from Etsy but I will post about those later.

 
I brought a book with our initials on it and put my baby picture on the side with my initial and his baby picture on the side with his initial. People loved this idea so much.

For those who are no longer with us we displayed some luminaries like these at the wedding. 



My dress didn't come from Etsy but I had to post about it. I brought it from The Bridal Shop of the Avenues in Jacksonville, Fl. The dress is by Maggie Sottero. I got it during February while the shop was changing dresses out from winter to spring. This dress is very heavy so I'm guessing it's a winter dress but it was 80% off. I paid $298 for a brand new Maggie Sottero dress. The weather was so beautiful on my wedding day I didn't even sweat. May 25 was one of the best days of my life.

A trunk full of Nerf guns

I found this trunk for my son at GW last week. I was not looking for a trunk but I knew he needed somewhere to put all of his Nerf guns. The trunk was $24.99, way out of my normal GW price range but I knew it would be more brand new. My son seems to love it and it holds the tons of Nerf guns he has. I found sometimes it's better to just buy what you want and not worry about the price.

Wedding advice

Hello everyone. I'm sorry I haven't posted for awhile. I have been very busy planning my wedding. I'm getting married on May 25. I know most brides have their whole family helping plan. I wish so much for that but It's just he and I planning. I wanted to ask all of you for wedding advice. What do you wish you did differently? What did you do that you really liked? Any advice would be great. Thanks in advance for your help.

H. Moncayo art

I have found lots of art but never by any artist I can find information about online. Well today I can say that changed. The artist of these paintings is. H. Moncayo. I have to admit the woman creeps me out. Even the cashier at the thrift store said she was creepy. For $6.00 each I would chance her bringing evil into my house. I'm sure that book she's reading is a book of spells or something. Just look at her, I tell you she's evil. lol

I found THE boots

I'm going to admit that I have been kind of jealous lately. I've been looking at blogs and seeing all the cute boots that fashion bloggers have been wearing. I have boots but I have yet to find THE boots. Well that is, until now. These Ariat boots were at G.W and were $7.00. I'm jealous no more.

The "Hole" Story

I love buying my clothing at Goodwill. It's been awhile since I have shopped at a department store. I like being able to buy good quality clothing at a cheap price. I have come to realize buying used clothing also has a downside. Recently I had a wardrobe malfunction. NO! not the Janet Jackson kind of wardrobe malfunction. Mine showed a little less skin. Recently I brought a pair of jeans at GW.  I wore them about four times and washed them about three times. I don't know when or how they became torn. I didn't even notice until half way through my shift at work. When I looked in the mirror, I realized I could see my underwear through my jeans. The rip was about a inch and half long. OMG, why did no one tell me? I would love to think no one told me because no one saw it. The rip was right next to the left pocket.  I couldn't go home and change. Luckily I found shirt in my car, long enough to cover the rip. I won't stop buying used clothing. I guess I just have to take a closer look in the mirror before I leave the house. Have any of you had a wardrobe malfunction?
