"Pinning" A Holiday Wedding

I still don't have all the little bugs worked out of transferring photos from Pinterest into my blog post, so please excuse the little glitches here and there. I've been collecting these images for a few weeks so that I could celebrate hubbs and my Anniversary which is today. Dare I say it...? 39 years...
I know that's older than many of you out there, and gee whiz, I hate to date myself... did I just say "gee whiz"... OK, that's dating myself. What can I say, we were kids.

Even before we were married I just loved the idea of a Christmas Wedding. Magical by candlelight and in a snow covered setting. These are just a few images that captured that feeling. Oh yes, and that must have hint of red.

The simplicity of "nature" added to this cake with the red roses and twigs would be my choice today.

And a sleigh ride from the church...just perfect!

How adorable are these two?
But maybe just a tad bit chilly.

Love her fur jacket...

OK, I probably would nix the skis.
But today I'm just dreaming...

would you like to know the reality of my day?

I spent last night in the ER with a sprained ankle.

Celebrating may be by candlelight, 
but it will probably be take out.

Oh well, at least it's not broken...
I'm thankful for that.
But anyway you look at it, 
I have a wonderful husband,
even if today's best friends are a pair of crutches and a vicodin.

Not complaining... just keepin' it real.

See ya tomorrow...I think.

Storybook Wedding

I think each little girl dreams of her

Wedding Day

and I was no exception.
Elaborate, or on a budget,
it can be Perfect!

My dear mom made all the bridesmaid dresses,
and helped me plan my special wedding day.

We met in August and we were married December 28, 1972,
almost 38 years ago.

I did a post last December about my
Red Plaid Wedding.

If you'd like to re-live it with me,
I invite you take a ride in the time machine.

And so began our lives together.
Joined together and kept together by God.
Without Him
we would never have found our way.

We were so young and really didn't know each other very well,
We just knew we were meant... yes,
 ordained to be together.

We have two darling daughters,
that their Daddy has walked down the aisle,
just like mine so many years ago.

And they lived happily ever after...

Please join Stephanie and all the Brides,
old and young,
for all the Wedding fun!

Silver Sunday, Tea Anyone...?

On a lazy Sunday afternoon, anyone for tea?

I love old silver,
but much of it is out of my price range.
So what I have, are bits and pieces
 I've collected from my flea market adventures.

This set was black with tarnish when I found it,

but I knew something wonderful was hidden underneath.

This is my wedding china, really French faience;
heavier and hand painted.
No two pieces are exactly alike.

Pewter tea tin...

With my favorite Scottish biscuits,
 "McVitties Digestibles".
They taste a little like graham crackers,
but more dense.

my "new" silver spoons,
and "old" butter knives.

Oh and let's not forget the Crabtree & Evelyn.

The tray isn't very heavy and it's a completely
 different style from the Georgian tea set,
but I love the ornate design, vintage by Wallace.

A lot of people like their silver tarnished.
And I have certain pieces that I do,
but silver is such a gorgeous metal
I like to keep mine shined.


Hope you have a delicious day!

Fashion Time Warp...or, I really wasn't crazy!

I've had some good laughs reading through the comments for my last post. I knew that the 70's fashion might be a little vague for some of us, and that you younger gals might not be familiar with what was popular back in 1972. Often times fashion comes full circle...the early 70's, not so much.

So I thought I'd give a little fashion show from the time machine, just so some of the younger girls wouldn't think I had totally lost my marbles, or was some kind of "hillbilly gone wild"!

Phrases like "Prairie Dress", "Maxie Dress",
"Gunne Sax" and "Hippie Dress"
were used to describe the height of fashion!

Look familiar?

Now just add the apron!

OK, now I feel better!
Just didn't want anyone out there
to think I was alone on the planet...

"What were you Thinking"!

love ALL you guys,
