DIY Wedding Invitation Ideas - A Start To Wedding Planning

I've been wanting to do a post on wedding stuff for two weeks now. I've found there is so much information and ideas....almost too much for my brain to handle. I spend more time looking through ideas than anything. But I'm locking down now....

**Side Note:  Everything is going to be DIY. And the more junkie/vintage/rustic, the better. Wedding planning is going to fit in perfectly at TJN. There may even be some furniture redoing going on for the occasion!**

I'm not sure where the "right" place is to start. But I feel like I should be starting with the invitations. The quicker I get these babies going, the less worrying will be done. Here are some ideas that I just love. 

Are you getting an old western feel here??? Almost circus like too. Reminds me of Water For Elephants....

Sometimes it takes putting it all in front of you to get the perspective you've been looking for. Now I can see where my mind is going with this.

A TV Stand (for Sale!!) and NEW HOUSE Sneak Peek

Some of you might remember this TV stand from my Teal & The Living Roaom Revel post waaaay back when I first started this blog. This TV stand made it through three years of apartment living and was always a conversation starter when we had company. Today.....she is for sale. 

If any of you are around the Southern Wisconsin area and interested....shoot me a message :)

Onto other business.

My current order of duty is......WEDDING PLANNING!!! And I have a feeling that the next year will be consumed by it.

For all of you wondering...we are getting married next July! I have no idea what I'm doing! But I do know that there will be many crafts to do - and post! - for the big day. TONS actually. I'm totally stoked!

And finally...

The HOUSE.  It isn't completely done yet, but there has been progress. I thought I would share a couple of photos.

Do you remember this kitchen?? 

Now....it's a bit toned down. We put in new appliances, painted and that's pretty much it! What do you think?

It's actually my favorite room in the house now.

I also wanted to give you a sneak peak into our bathroom. It's not 100% finished, but you get the idea.  I had done an inspiration post ..here...before we bought the house.  It didn't turn out anything like my inspirations...but the general idea is there.

It went from....well I have no idea what it was before. But now it's a rustic/modern blend.

And that's all I've got for today :)
