Generations....

Less than 60 days to go...
it is hard to believe...

Oscar and Emma

I have been doing a bit of embroidery for wedding related items..

A label for the quilt...


{Working on} a swag for the card/gift table....


 "C"
transfers by Anna Maria Horner

 
 And a pillow for the ring bearer...

embroidery inspired by Urban Threads...

Some of my time has been spent collecting photos of moms and dads and grandparents on their wedding day...to be on display at the reception...


my kids laugh every time they see this photo of Mike and me!  It's the hair they can't get over...well, it was the 80's....

But my most touching discovery was my mother-in-law's wedding photo album...just lovely....

     
how precious are these bridesmaids dresses!


the very handsome father-in-law I never knew.... I wish I had....

  
so happy...we lovingly embrace a tradition shared by generations...
happy wednesday!

  20. I love this post, the wedding photos are fabulous. I'm about to put a 'wall' of family photos up on our staircase, I've been waiting years to do it and hope to have as many old wedding ones as I can gather. I think those handmade touches to the wedding are so nice and it'll be great to have them as keepsakes. Beth/thelinencat x
