Wedding Flowers, Finds & Prayer's Needed

 We had great success at Bachman's floral! The consultant was very helpful. Daughter will have a large bouquet of WHITE and Fuchsia Cally lilies with a little bling. The bride maids will have pink and the grooms men will have white as well as the Groom! We stayed UNDER budget. Hooray!!! Very simple and yet elegant. Everyone is happy :)  So, any local Bride to Be, GO TO BACHMANS! You won't be disappointed!!
Friday we went to 2 estate sales which had some good old treasures. The photos above show most of the goodies! The pyrex has it's lid. I'm keeping the canister set and the old Christmas cards to send out. Ball jars seem to be a hot item right now. I do have lids and they sell around $8+ each.

Tomorrow is a work night at Auntie M's. I'll bring home smalls that aren't selling and they will end up in our "estate" sale in May. It's going to be a HUGE sale!!! 2 garages loaded!!! plus things under a canopy!

Hubby put down new indoor/outdoor carpet in the breezeway. "Some" little doggie has used it for her potty area! NAUGHTY! Anyone want a little dog???  Another project done!

There are some bloggers out there that need our prayers. I'm not going to link you up to them, as I didn't ask them for permission to share this with you....Linda has breast cancer and her first chemo is Monday. Deb's Mom has passed on. Sharon's sister has also passed on. Sandy & Erica suffer from RA. Laura's hubby needs a job and Theresa's brother is in the hospital. My BIL is in the hospital with bacterial meningitis since Thursday. I'm sure there are many others who need our prayers...God is Powerful, a Healer of our hearts and physical needs and only wants the best for us! Thank you for those of you who pray.

Son glad you got the flowers settled. We used Calla Lillies at Sara's Wedding and they are gorgeous. You got some great finds, love the canisters. So many need our prayers and I'm adding these to my list.
hugs, Linda

Those canisters and that Pyrex? Swoon! I would have picked those up in a second.

So sweet of you to ask for prayers for our blog friends. It works!

The flowers the two of you picked out are going to be gorgeous. Simple and so elegant. Love your finds! The canisters are awesome and in great condition. Pyrex and Ball jars, always good sellers. Blog friends are the nicest people. We are a group united by our love of vintage and decorating. I've found when you need a shoulder to lean on, blog friends are always there for you, willing to prop you back up when times are hard.

Believing God for healing for all. Yes, He is the God that healeth thee. He is the Lord our healer. He sends His word and heals our disease. He is the Lord our healer. I love this song and it sustained us through my son in law's cancer. He is healed today. God doesn't always choose to heal in the way we pray, but he always brings peace. Love all the red. Oh makes me want to go pickin'. It's been awhile. Since I'm not working, it's been hard. Praying for brighter days soon!

So happy you found the flowers and got everything you wanted under budget. That is fantastic and a big hurdle. My prayers go out to all in need. Wow Deb you have a lot of sickness and sadness around you so I will say a prayer for your strength as you reach out to all of these sweet friends in need. You are a good soul and angel to ask for the power of prayer for all of them.
