Freebie Friday

Hey all!  Friday is almost gone and I'm running short on time, racing to get all my little ducks in a row for the Sidney Farmer's Market in the morning.  However, I didn't want to miss the chance to share a freebie with you.   These are the leftovers from the rehearsal dinner that my family hosted for my brother's wedding.
SO SIMPLE! Step one: Find an irresistible jar or vase.  Step two: Pluck some weeds from the field.  If you are super lucky you will find a nice pretty sunflower too! Step three: Combine the two and add water.  Walah!

I love me a good theme party!  These were perfect for our down-home, country theme.  

I whipped up this lovely Photoshop masterpiece.  It served as the cover to the invitations and really helped set the mood, and its another freebie!!!  As a half-host there wasn't much time to play photographer but there was a delicious spread of fried chicken, corn-on-the-cob, red skin potatoes, and garden fresh salads.  To top it all off, homemade pies, apple, cherry, peach, and old fashion sugar cream...YUM! Go ahead, be jealous.
Little Miss played to part of Laura Ingles running through the meadow. Can't you just here the Little House on the Prairie theme song??  Da dum da da da da de da... no, wait, that's Young and the Restless.  Nevermind!

I know this one means nothing to most of you, but its a very rare photo that almost makes me cry (which should say a lot but in my very hormonal condition is actually quite easy to do.)  The first handsome fella with the strange look on his face is my youngest brother, Ian.  He made it home just in time for all the wedding festivities and had to leave the day after.  He headed back to Texas where he is stationed until he is deployed to Iraq next month.  Next, is my brother Caleb, the groom.  I couldn't be more proud of the man he has become.  The short squatty one is Dad.  Dad, the word alone says it all!

Thanks all for visiting!  Come back soon to check out wedding pictures and the recently finished basement project!  Hope to see you all tomorrow at the Sidney Farmer's Market!
