so, i'm thinking about starting a post weekly: "finds for friday"
where i share thrift store or swap meet finds that i come across
for now they are mostly ones i will use for the wedding
but later...in oregon, they will probably be for the home we put together
what do you guys think?
here are this week's:
last sunday, i was walking through the maze that is the Rosebowl swap meet and passed stacks upon stacks of these massive tan books. as i looked a bit closer, i realized that they were books of newspaper articles from the New York Times. oh goodness. i died. then i grabbed one from 1946 which had prints from Aug. 1-15 ( including my wedding date).
i'm going to use it for my guest book!
lastly, my old door. i have an old window that i had previously bought to use for the seating at the wedding. i knew i needed either another window or a big old wooden door.
problem: everyone wants to sell old doors for WAY TOO MUCH $$$
i had given up my dream until i came across the same gentleman at the same swap meet who had sold me my window. cost for an old door: $30 way better than $100-200
created by the lovely lady who helped me finish my invites (her hand-writing is much better than mine)--as soon as she gets a blog up and running i will make sure to include her info as she now wants to start up a freelance stationary/invitation business
