Finished glasses and garage sale score!!

Yep I finally finished my glasses and just in time for a little girls get together on a Saturday.  They were so easy and so cheap.  I love the way they turned out and am thinking about future projects with other glasses from the Dollar Tree.

Here are some pictures of my bar a couple weekends ago for our little flamingo party!!

Don't you LOVE those bottles of sparkling lemonade and pink lemonade?  I found them at Home Goods for $3.99 and ended up buying them from Aldi for $2.49 each.  SCORE!!!

Seriously, how cute are those flamingo napkins?  I found them on the interweb and had to have them!!  I mixed in some pink polka dot napkins from the Dollar General and we were in business.

Here is a full shot of our pink flamingo bar.  WAY, WAY TOO MUCH FUN!!!!

So, onto the finished glasses.  I know you can't see them very well here so I'll share an up close an personal shot.  As you'll be able to see I decided to go half and half.  Partially because I liked the mix and partially because it was easier to do the solid glasses than the polka dot glasses and I was short on ambition time!

Love the finished product!!  You know what else I love?  Those gold mini heels on the right.  They were my great grandmas and I've always loved them since I can remember.  I can hardly remember last week but always remember adoring those mini heels.  My mom had them in her curio cabinet and was kind enough to let me keep them forever borrow them.  

Now onto my garage sale scores.  Boo boo kitty and I went to Menard's a couple Sundays ago to buy light bulbs.  Yeah I know, we're pretty exciting.  We tried our hardest to find something else that we "needed" but came up short.  So we decided to hit some garage sales on the way home.  
We did only find one and luckily enough I was the one to find something.  I found this little blue gem and knew I had to have it.  Not to mention I got it for a buck :-)

I finally found some throw pillows and decided on my colors in my and cobalt/midnight/navy blue (whatever you want to call it).  I've been struggling to find my sunroom's identity for quite some time but I'll share that another day!  #firstworldproblems

Annndddd finally here are some Christmas glasses for our bar that I got for $2.00 just down the road at another garage sale.  I know, I know who wants to think about Christmas, but I just couldn't pass them up.  I just love the gold ring around the top and think they'll be perfect with my Christmas bar.

So there ya have it!!  Do any of you have little trinkets that you loved as a kid?  Any good garage finds you want to share?  Add some pics for the rest of us to admire!
