Busy Weekend, Wedding & Yard Sale

A happy Sunday to you!
I’m sure tired today it was one busy weekend starting Thursday night when Michael and Carrie came home from Annapolis. My youngest was best man in his friends wedding, my first outdoor wedding and it was so nice and pretty! Here are a few pictures:
The bride and groom!
The Terrible Towel…all are big Steeler fans!
The Best Man & Maid of Honor!

My son’s and I (Chris & Michael), now don’t forget I have two more kids but they were at another wedding!

The Bridal table…notice her colors, aqua and green!
The Bride’s Maids bouquets! I’m sure they are Hydrangeas.
Floating Candle centerpieces!
Birdcage card holder and guest signing table!
Mr.K and I, we were married 4 years this past May 26th and we both forgot about it until a couple days later…we just blamed it on age.LOL
After church we drove home so that Mr. K  could get into more comfortable clothes, on the way back we stopped at a yard sale just up the rode from us, I spied this bench and just knew it would be so pretty painted white with different fabric for the seat…she had $20.00 on it but I got it for $15.00!!! I’ m pretty sure I’m going to take out two chairs from the dining room table and use this instead, that’s the plan right now anyway and yes, I stopped like I was dressed to get this bench. LOL The sun is shining on it in the picture but it’s an orange so it’s from the 70’s.
One more thing before I go, I saw this on this great blog Three Ring Cottage Gina had come up with such a neat Pottery Barn idea! I already had the pickle jar which had been filled with old cookie cutters, emptied it out and bought pea gravel and a candle from Dollar Tree and here it is! Love it, thanks for the idea Gina!
I hope everyone has a wonderful summer evening where ever you are!

Nice wedding and reception pics. That bench was a steal at fifteen dollars. Can't wait to see it refurbished.

Hi Rondell~~~looks like a great weekend. LOVE the bench you found.
My step-grandson is still up and it's after 10:30....ugh, I need some sleep. I have to work tomorrow.
Thank you for stopping by.

You got that bench at a great bargain price. When I went to an auction last year I saw one, almost identical, and it went for over $40!
Too rich for my wallet!
You look beautiful in your wedding attire.
Happy "belated" anniversary!

I can just see that sweet bench painted a pretty creamy white and maybe the seat covered in a pink toile or burlap with a french stamp or stencil.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I'm following you now and will be back to see you often.

What a sweet looking wedding. The bridesmaid's dressers are the most beautiful colour. I love you PB knock-off lantern.
