Wedding Post 1 of 100

I am getting married in September! So ALL of the posts until then will be about my wedding...
Just kidding... well sort of... let's just say I am not making promises that I will posting about anything else because I am eating, drinking and dreaming WEDDING. There is not much else going on in my mind right now... Is that normal? I feel like it's crunch time with less than 3 months to go! Eeekkk

Oh and the reason for my post... Jenny from Hank + Hunt ( and ( is going to provide garlands for my entire wedding venue!!! To say that I'm thrilled that she offered to decorate my wedding with her fabulous garlands is a huge understatement....

I can't wait to share pictures! Oh and her prices are great... visit etsy to purchase them for your next party or put some in your house. LOVE THEM=)

Going to the Country...

Thank you so much for everyone who came out last weekend to our first of many Taylor St. Markets! And a big thankyousoooomuch to all the vendors! It was a huge success. I was flattered when some of you asked when our next one is going to be. Any suggestions? I'll keep you posted=)
Why the airstream pictures you ask? Well my future hubby, his parents and I are going to the country for the week! And I so wish we were traveling in one of these fab trailers. I am so looking forward to the day when I can buy and redecorate one of these gems=)

Thank you so much for the sweet sweet emails! I promise to get back with you as soon as I get back from my vacay...

How adorable is the red shabby chic one!

We hit the MOTHER LOAD!

Tracey from came running over to Pickled today and said "guys, I hit the chandelier mother load! Come quick! They are holding them for me! Oh and I have a coupon!" That was music to my ears=) Before I could even think that I am running a boutique and have a facial in an hour that I should probably be setting up for... I grabbed my purse and was out the door. I mean... motherload, I couldn't resist those words. Seriously though... I probably spend hours at garage sales and thrift stores looking for vintage crystal chandeliers, so when I walk into a store and there are 5 gorgeous chandies sparkling and they are 50% off, ahhhhhh!!!!! What a great friend. Thank you Tracey! Oh and of course they will all be for sale on Saturday=)

WoRk wOrK WoRk...

This is a song that my future father-in-law likes to sing and start his day with. I have been singing this song a little too much lately... But this hard work will all be worth it for this Saturday's Taylor St. Market! Here is a picture of one of the many glass garden flowers my Mom has been whipping out this past week. I wish a had a better picture of them displayed in our front yard, but I don't=( So I guess you are just going to have to come see them for yourself....=) See you Saturday from 8-3!

Measure once, cut twice?

I FINALLY finished this potting bench I have been working on for days... It turned out just how I imagined too! I didn't put a hole in the bench because I think it would make an adorable drink station in someones backyard. It going to look a lot cuter in a backyard instead of the back alley behind Pickled Tink... Maybe my backyard? Ha. I intended to "whip" 4 of these little babies out in 1 day. Well after 4 trips to Lowe's, 4 times of taking it apart and starting over, 4 MEN telling me "the right way" I put some meaning to measure twice, cut once! I put so many hours into building this one that I am going to have a hard time selling it =( Have you ever made something that is too cute to sell... I think I just did. oops. Good news is I have 3 more windows (from my picker) that are going to be equally as great (and hopefully easier too now that I have a plan). Make sure you stop by June 5Th for our Taylor St. Market. We have such cute vendors/artist coming! I'll be posting some sneak peeks of our Artist as soon as I get the pictures. It is from 8-3pm. We are going to have popcorn, lemonade and some other baked goods. See you there!
