I've been a bad blogger

Cricket.....cricket.....cricket......

I'm so sorry I've been MIA for the past week or so! My little man broke my computer (lovely) so I haven't been able to blog. Not that I have much to blog about, really. Still on the hunt for a job, so I still don't have a reception site booked yet. It's making me extremely anxious, and I'm afraid that by the time my future is secured, all of the sites we love will be booked up. *sigh* While I don't have the moolah to put down on a deposit for the reception, what I do have, however, is centerpieces!!

:cheers: :screams: :yay:

Thrift store hunting is one of my favorite pastimes, and that's where I've been finding all of my milk glass vases for my DIY centerpieces. Oh how I love me some milk glass...
from theblogandchain.com
I would love to find some large, beautiful milk glass vases like in the pictures, but thus far all I have are bud vases. Very cute bud vases, but bud vases. If I can't find any larger vases for a good price I may just end up clustering 3-4 bud vases at one table. The good thing about these tiny vases is that I've been able to find them all for less than $2 a pop, most of them being 75cents are so! Score! Perfect for a budget wedding :) Clustered inside these beautiful vases will be some sort of red flower (but not roses). Now all I need is a reception site and some tables to place these beautiful centerpieces on..... :)

I love milk glass too. maybe you could look for someone over on Brideshare.net who's in the area and also wants to use milk glass vases? you could split the cost?

hope you find a job soon!

Good luck finding more milk glasses. I would try looking to see if anyone is selling any on Craigslist. Also, I hope you get a job soon so you can start looking at the different great wedding vendors that are out there.
