What a fun weekend I had! On Saturday morning I went to some yard sales and bought some great stuff; vintage jewelry, a beaded purse, a stitched coastal scene wall hanging, a dolphin soap dispenser, and an awesome mod coffee table for $3. That afternoon Brian and i attended his cousin's wedding ceremony right on the water at a private residence in Bristol, RI. It was a little gray out which is why the photos aren't popping with wonderful bright summer colors, but beautiful nonetheless. I wore a vintage dress that I bought at an auction a few months ago. The color couldn't be more perfect and it fits like it was made for me. You can't really see it in the photos, but the circles are ornate designs in gold print. I accessorized with gold vintage jewelry and newer shoes from TJ Maxx. An older woman told me that I looked so beautiful and sophisticated while so many of the other women there "are dressed like trash." I guess that's the thing about wearing vintage; you can look sexy without showing too much. That and old people will love you because you remind them of their youth. The reception was held that evening at The State Room in Boston. It's a function venue on the 33rd floor right in downtown. The views were amazing and it was great to watch the city lights come up as the sun went down. The food was absolutely delicious and we had so much fun dancing. For some reason there were long skinny balloons floating around and Brian had me in stitches after he whipped up a balloon animal giraffe in about 5 seconds. That boy never ceases to amaze me. (Apparently he had a "How to Make Balloon Animals" book as a child.)
Sunday was spent at the SOWA Open Market and what a perfect day! The sun was bright and shining and my booth was full the entire time. I'm so glad you gals love Fidget Finds so much! My next SOWA won't be until July 18th as there is no market on the 4th and I have a wedding the following weekend. I will be posting items on etsy this week and next, so stay tuned!
