The missing wedding party

So today, I went back to the sale that Gail and I went to yesterday. My timing was good, everything went to half price the minute I walked in the front door. First thing I saw (missed it yesterday) was this gorgeous wedding party in a sandwich bag; bride, groom, maid of honor and 4 attendants. (Who has 4 attendants any more? The blushing bride must have been a Kennedy!)
I asked the cashier to put the bag aside for me while I filled a big-ass basket full of vintage floral prints, old French postcards and aprons. I was in such a tizzy that when I paid, I forgot about the wedding party! Came home, and while I was laying down, mentally re-capping my purchases, I realized what I had done. Heart pounding, I jumped back in the car. I didn't even care that it was 140 degrees outside or that gas costs $50. a gallon. Luckily, the estate sale guys had put it aside for me, bless their hearts.

That is the cutest little set of tiny plastic dressed up people ever. I cannot believe how good that sale sounds and that it was somewhere in this city and I missed it!! I have not been to a really good estate sale in some time. You are making me so jealous!! Nice finds!

Love your cute wedding party! BTW, I would love it if you added me to your favorites. Sorry it took awhile to get back to you on that. And yes, I did change my banner a few days ago. Just thought the pic of the pink roses in my garden would make a pretty banner. Hope you like it. The vintage condoms are a riot!
