We enjoyed hiking and walks along the beach...
shopping in many of the little tourist shops...
...including this cute old fashioned candy shop...

I love all the lamps with the coastal theme!
The painting on the sides of buildings
and street lamps added to the coastal atmosphere.
Here's the view we enjoyed on the beach.
I recently found this painting at a garage sale for a dollar...

It will look great hanging in my laundry room

The second pillow was put together in the same manner with the exception of a pillow purchased from a garage sale. It already had the pearl edging and some ribbon which we removed. We finished it by added some rings.

The cost for these pillows was right on budget...just a few dollars.
Happy Wedding Planning!

This has been very handy when you have to return an item.Another tip that I do regularly, in addition to using my coupons, is to buy items on sale.
My total savings since I started this system in the middle of October 2009, is...
