Kelli is hosting show and tell Friday again
So, here's mine.
Well, I'm continuing my series on my "pretties." Y'all seemed to enjoy hearing all about some of the music boxes my darling Subvet has given me over the years so today I'm going to show you a few of my wedding related pretties.
This picture shows one of our wedding photos, the frame/photo album was a wedding gift.
aaaaaahhh, we were skinny then......
In the center of this picture is our cake topper. The open book says LOVE...bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
The white photo album holds all the pictures from the wedding and reception. I did a fun thing at our reception. I wanted more than just the photographer's still shots, but had listened to too many friends complain that the cameras they'd put on every table when developed had 50,000 pictures of the same thing...that first dance and the cutting of the cake. So instead, since my reception was a stand and chat affair and there wasn't much for the 7 or 8 teens to do I came up with this plan. I bought 5 disposable cameras. I then asked for 5 teenage volunteers or pairs of teens. From a "hat" they drew their instructions to go with their camera. The instructions were:(1) pictures of people eating. (2) Pictures of people talking. (3) Crazy/silly posed pictures. (4)Nice posed pictures. (5) Pictures of the house. (my reception was held in an old Victorian House that was elaborately decorated). I have fabulous photos!!
And finally, this is the wedding gift that Subvet gave to me.
The lid is a music box that plays the chorus to "I will always love you" of Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston fame.
The watch and keychain belonged to my Grandma.
