Vintage Holiday Limo Tour

This past weekend was SO much fun! Saturday morning I taught a class on couponing with a friend at church. It was my first public speaking event in a long time..actually maybe ever. God totally calmed my nerves and seeing all the sweet faces of all the ladies at my church made me realize that it was all good. Of course there were things I realized I should have said or done differently but overall it was so much fun I can't wait to do it again. After the class my friend who came to the class all the way from SD headed home with me and we met her husband and daughter at our house where we then all went to lunch and had a great time catching up. Finally, my mom and sister came over and picked me up to go to the Vintage Holiday Limo Tour..or something like that. My mom and I went last year and it was so much fun. All the vintage shops/boutiques have their Holiday Open House that day starting at around 10am and are open til about 8pm. There is a limo service that comes around starting at 4 and takes you to all the shops in town that are participating. You get to shop and eat and just have fun girl time. I look forward to it every year! I did find something at one of the shops called "Forget Me Nots". I saw these vintage glass pendant lights in one of the booths. They immediately caught my eye. I stepped away as I really have no where to put them and I am renting my home. But..they lured me back in and I saw that they were originally 87.00 for the pair(they are actually all one piece)..then marked down to 50.00 and there was a sign for 15% off everything in the booth. So..I asked the owner if that applied to already marked down items and she said yes. Now, if you know me, you know I love a bargain. So with tax i would be paying around 45.00. Merry Christmas to ME!!!! I bought them and they are now sitting on the floor in my craft room. Hopefully I can convince The Hubs to hang them in our bedroom. He said they look like something his Grandma would of had in her house and to that I said "your grandma had excellent taste". Here are some pics..unfortunately I did not take any while I was there:(. There were so many other items I wanted to come live with me..but I was good and just bought the pendants. My mom and sister also bought some great finds:).
