Wednesday Write Up




Hello All!
Hope this Wednesday finds you well.

Today is "Best Friends Day" and I would
like to wish ALL my friends near and 
far a good day!
I love each of you and couldn't get 
along without you!





Well, last Saturday was a big day 
for a special lady and her family. 
Ken and I were invited to this 
lovely venue for her wedding!





This is the Thompson Barn, it 
has changed drastically over 
the last 50 +++ years.
Our lovely city has turned it 
into the MOST sought after 
venue for weddings in the city. 
Brides must reserve it a year in 
advance in order to secure it for 
their big day!





Upon arrival guests were greeted 
with the chalkboard and picture 
table. Loved the pictures!








This would be the inside of the 
barn. The restoration work is 
AMAZING!





Chairs were set up for the ceremony 
on the second floor of the barn.





I'm going to call the theme for this 
wedding feminine with a rustic touch
here and there. This beautiful wreath
was hanging on the doors in the front.





During the cocktail hour and while
other pictures were being taken, 
ceremony area turned into the 
dining and dancing area.
this was our table. Pretty glass

bowl with floating candles and 
greenery. If you look closely
or biggie the pic, you will see
the small carved gourds by the 
champagne flutes. The groom's 
mother worked in Peru for four 
years and knows the couple who 
carved them. Each one has a 
ribbon with the date and their 
names on it.





Here is the beautiful bride with her 
family. Dad, Mom and brother.





Their first dance as husband
and wife.





A beautiful cake. I love the topper,
it was cut out of wood!
The bride and groom are outdoors
people( ie: hunting, fishing etc.) so 
I thought it was a fitting topper for 
them.





When trying to figure out their 
gift, I ran into a wall...everything 
on their registry was already 
purchased and I am not too hep 
on getting something from there
anyway. Soo after a discussion
with my friend, the Mother of the 
bride I decide to make another jar.  
I made a Honeymoon jar. I heard 
from the bride the next day "we 
loved your gift!"





A wedding selfie.
It was a  beautiful evening 
for a lovely couple. We
wish them many years
of HAPPINESS!!

Garage sales are all over the
place and I have been to a
few as soon as I can I will 
post pics of my treasures.
