A few of my new favorite finds

So. My newest obsession is all things galvanized. I can't control myself. I actually have purchased more since taking this picture!! The lanterns are from Ross clearance $8 each. Can't pass that up! And the others are all Target online (also a new obsession) tray $14. Caddy $19 2 tier caddy $30. Dangerous I tell you! 
I have always wanted an old coke crate and got one on Friday for $17! Not too bad right!? (Bottles not included) 
Today I went to the thrift store, I love treasure hunting! And I got this lovely mismatched set for $4! I couldn't resist. Aren't they so Anthropologie!? There are 5 tea cups, 2 saucers and 3 bowls. Wouldn't the plates be cute on the wall!? Yes please! 

Baby Shower

My very best friend from high school that now lives out of town is having her first baby! And it's a girl!! Yippee! I threw her a shower a few weeks ago and wanted to share some pictures. It turned out really cute! 

Red belle cake and homemade cream cheese icing! 

Veggies and dip, chocolate covered strawberries, cheese and cake. And of course paper straws sweet tea, pink lemonade in milk glasses (old frap bottles)

I printed out the babies name and the invite and put them in frames I already had. Cheap and easy! 
Loved this, I found the crate at Ross for $7! Perfect! The burlap runner I got from hobby lobby as well as the burlap banner. So cute and simple. Plus I can add ribbon for any "theme" that can be easily changed.
