Milk glass! I am not a milk glass bride, though I just saw a garage sale today with 4 or 5 vases. Garage sales would be great resources for brides interested in that.

I LOVE garage sales!  I went to one about a month ago…it was advertised on Craigslist so there was a mob outside the house before they even opened.  Anyways, it was suppose to start @8 a.m. but the garage remained closed even when it was 15 after.  I started to become super annoyed and told my FI that if they didn’t open within the next 5 min, we were leaving.  The 5 min came and went and still nothing.  Something told me to just wait a lil more so I said to myself, 2 more min but that is it!!!  Thank God I waited!  This was the most AWESOME sale ever!  The girl having the sale was getting married in 2 months and moving to Texas with her FI so she was selling 90% of everything in her place.  She was also a Premier Designs vendor so she had TONS of gorgeous jewelry and was selling everything DIRT cheap.  I got all of the jewelry that I am going to wear for my wedding and got all the BM’s their jewelry too!  The retail price on everything was about $1,500 and she gave it all to me for only $125!  Of course I also got some other great stuff as she had good taste, not only in home decor, but in fashion too.  (too bad she had a small foot because she had some Jimmy Choo’s for only $50! They were in the original box and had the price sticker of $850…they were gorgeous, ivory adorned with swarovski crystals….I hate that my feet are size “AVATAR” lol..) Sorry for all the rambling but I got so excited all over again.
