Are you ready for this?????????
Well, now that I've made this out to be a totally, won't want to miss, phenomenal post, this may not be that wonderful for some after all...but for me..... whatta jackpot, baby!!!! This morning, I went to a neighbor's yard sale and ran across a tub (yes, I said a TUB~ it's big, like one of those under the bed storage boxes) of bridal cake decorations!!!!! This treasure trove is full of wedding cake toppers, bells, commemorative anniversary numbers, pillars, angels, doves, curly-cue gate~ type thingies, crosses, vintage foil number stickers, etc., and about 10 differently sized bride and groom couples!! Oh, just wait until you see them when I get them unpacked, cleaned up and cute-ified!!! I really can't believe it!!!!! I am SO excited to get these beauties organized and sorted...altered art, here we come! Almost all of the decorations are vintage~there are a couple of newer ones tossed in~ like a hideous, new, gag thing that said "older than dirt", I still have to go through it all. Oh, and you know the sweet ballerina toppers?? I found a huge one inside! That is a real BoNuS!!!! She is sooo sweet... she's already found a spot in my dining room so, sadly, she was left out of the picture... but don't worry, she'll get her spotlight tomorrow! I really can't believe that I have aquired a collection this large- all at once... obviously, someone had a wonderful business at one time. A big thank you and hug to Marianne for allowing me to snag my new toys for only $4.00!!! Big thanks to Kim, also... these were part of her contribution to the sale. I can't remember who it was that was the cakemaker (mother or grandmother) but please know, they have definitley found a good new home. I cherish them so! Can't wait to use them..........in and ON everything~ like my life is just one gi-normous cake!!!! :)
